Yeah I was surprised by the way he adds the wire rings the split rings clip on to - just drilll a hole into the lure - twist up some wire and jam it in there with loctite gel super glue. He reckons the bond is so tight a man cant pull it out with pliers.

I watched this a couple days ago!!!

Epic build

Man those romans are pricey! I’d be taking a snorkel if I ever fished em

He’s a well set up lure maker by the looks of things

His lead dripper was impressive to get the correct weight distribution

Would love this kind of setup at home. Just need a man cave big enough to allow everything to coexist

Yeah watching the amount of work, skill and attention to detail that goes into hand carving one of those beasts, has given me a new appreciation for how Anglers justify paying that sort of cash for a lure.

Yeah, it'd be pretty damn hard to pull them out. Superglue makes for a damn strong bond, I use it rather than epoxy when joining my lure halves.

I believe there would be a slightly different origin story for the lure if that was the case

Hand carving 10,000 scales into relief with a box cutter

These guys use poplar and birch, what do you use Stella that has similar carving qualities so the grain/fibres don't run away from the blade?

I use paulownia. It's almost the grain is honestly terrible, but it's barely above the density of balsa so it's pretty easy to carve. The hardest part is not chunking out on the fine details, so i tend to paint a thin coat of penetrating wood hardener over the areas I'm carving to give it more structural stability.

So, when can we expect a vid of your fabrications

I remember seeing an old vid of a bloke/brand called Ginei. Some amazing thumb control.
