Image Above: Home made lures shaped from polymer clay
Three weeks without holding a fishing rod, I feel like a recovering addict. Anyway it has not all been wasted I have finally got to grips with making some prototypes out of polymer clay. After buying a cheap set of wax shaping tools my sculpting abilities seem to have come on a bit. The main lures above are attempts to capture the look of salmon parr, the white is the original and the others cast out of latex mould of the same. These are far from finished, at the moment I am just working on the shape and the swimming action. The final finish will be airbrush and epoxy with a natural look.
