Seems like more and more folks are getting into make-your-own mode when it comes to fishing lures. Everything from pouring their own jigs and soft rubber lures to turning out hand carved plugs. And no wonder, what with some manufacturers pricing their plugs right up around twenty bucks or more. So if you're building your own stuff, or have thought it about it now and then, or just want to see what some others have done, here's your chance.

There's a new Lure Building forum starting up at Noreast (should be up this week)and everyone's welcome to visit. Jerry Vovcsko, aka, Roccus, who writes a column under Massachusetts Updates and can't keep from fiddling with manufacturers' lures - tweaking here, modifying there - along with an engineer and plug-builder who posts in Noreast forums under the handle Gottafly, will moderate the new board. Drop by for a visit. Everyone's welcome. :)

great news! I could use some tips. What's the best way to twist the tail wire. That is my main problem. my plugs look professional until I twist the end. resorted to heavy duty screw eyes. I will post some pics in the future.

surf_caster. You can try safety wire pliers. This tool makes a real nice twist in the wire. See attached link. You can probably find these at auto parts stores

Hi Jerry,
Great forum!!!

Although I tweak a few of my lures myself... I don't have anything to ask for now? But I am sure that in the near future I will have plenty to ask...

Good Luck and Tight Lines!
