some home-made fishing lures

Toronto, 2015.11.07

The boy and I have been making wooden fishing lures, and rebuilding some old ones. The old ones came out of the heaps of junk at the cottage. One man's collector's item is another man's opportunity to put googly eyes on something!

I've been learning to paint epoxy on the things. Something I wouldn't have thought necessary, but apparently pike and other sharp-toothed fish just bite right through varnish and damage the lure.
