Thanks for visiting! You've probably heard stories about how I invented a system that almost anyone can use to become an expert wooden crankbait maker, even if they've never tried to make crankbaits before! Over the years I've been very lucky to have learned thousands of the "in-house" secrets that most professional lure makers won't share, which has helped me make custom wooden lures that smash bought baits out of the ballpark! But it's been a long, hard journey to get the knowledge and skills I needed - and one that YOU need never go through!
Over more than 30 years that I've been making crankbaits, I've discovered lots of secret tips and techniques, and I have developed an easy way of doing things that works for me - and it also works for lots of other people I've taught to make wooden crankbaits. By breaking it all down into simple, logical steps the crankbait making process becomes easy - and making lures that blow away commercial lures every time becomes second nature. In fact, by introducing the concepts one at a time, I can have a complete newbie making lures that catch fish in just a couple of weekends - it would be faster, but we have to wait for the paint to dry
