If you're like me, it's not much of a thrill to make simple soft plastic lures that are flat on one side. Sure, you can buy a set of molds and the whole injection set up but, unless you're going to be making several lures, that option may be cost prohibitive.

Here's a really great Youtube showing you how to make your own injection molds, how to use them, and the finished product.

This vid is from a guy in the U.K. named Paul Adams. He has a great channel on Youtube and I would recommend checking out his vids if you're into making fishing lures or even just thinking about it because his instruction will save you a lot of wasted time and effort.







Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!

February 10th 2014 04:06
Have you ever stood at the lure rack in a sporting goods store and wondered how a fish can bite on some of the stuff you see?

The thing you have to remember is that fish don't see things the same way humans do.

Saving money on lures

September 18th 2012 01:50
The other day I saw a good article in Field & Stream relating the story of an angler who battled a shark from a kayak.

I thought it may be worth a link in this blog and looked online to see if the article was on the Field & Stream website. Unfortunately, it wasn't but I ran across an article that may be of even more interest to readers in the States.

How to make a lure mold

June 30th 2012 01:47
Here's a video on how to make a lure mold that won't break the bank.

Over the past few years, I've been on a quest for the ultimate home made mold and this is probably the most cost effective. The drawback to something like this is that you end up with a flat side where the mold material is poured into the mold.

Making your own fishing lures is a great way to pass time when you're stuck inside and nothing beats the satisfaction of landing a fish on a lure you created.

Believe me, it doesn't take artistic ability. Just remember, it doesn't matter what your fishing buddies think, if fish like your lure, that's all that matters!

DIY doesn't always save money

March 15th 2011 01:05
I saw an article the other day that stated although we're coming out of one of the worst economic downturns known to modern man, we may never stop the spendthrift habits we developed during the rough years. The article went on to compare this generation to those who grew up during the Depression and made comparisons.

Even without skimping through hard economic times, anglers are a rather frugal bunch. Lures, bait buckets, or sinkers are just some of the items you can find in the angler's workshop.

Some more instruction on making molds

February 12th 2010 00:23
If you've been giving it a try or even thinking about making your own molds, this post may be the impetus to get you going.

The first video show how to make a simple one piece silicone mole using RTV silicone which is Room Temperature Vulcanizing. Although the products may seem costly, the convenience outweighs the price and it's perfect for the casual lure maker because the finished product cures at room temperature. In fact, even if you fish EVERY day on the professional level, RTV is the way to go. Practically the only alternative to this is biting the bullet and opening an industrial lure making process which will cost thousands if not millions of dollars.
