The business

I suppose the trouble with business is ultimately you have to make money which is useful but on the whole shit boring. So I am hopefully going to make fishing lures instead and then sell them for money so I can continue making fishing lures and eating and going fishing. That is my business plan, lucky I don`t have to take it to the bank and ask for money based on the last sentence.  The biggest question is, can I do it?  I am not the only person asking, both in-laws and outlaws are asking. I think I can and what’s more I am going to give it a go.

Above is my first advert, this feels a bit like prostituting the thing I love but needs must and at least it is an attempt at humour although an advertising guru would tell me it is sending out mixed messages.    Bollocks to mission statements, bollocks to ethos I am just going to make lures that I like and that I catch fish with, hopefully other people might also. Watch this space the lures will be on sale by the end of the week.

My wife says I always look like that picture above and that based on that evidence I should smarten up my act.  Yes and the hook is real and even with the point snapped off it hurt.


  1. That is a great advert. Us fisherman have weird senses of humor, so that is perfect.

    1. i have a couple of lures with minor flaws in the epoxy, it would be a great favour if you could test them out a bit by when the big freeze is over up there. If you e-mail me address I'll post them.

  2. like i said before ,go forit mate,from experience i know its a lot of hard work ,join fishing forums and get known,get well respected members on those forums to test them out and do a post about what they think etc,and dont overlook the old fasioned fishing magazines too.

  3. If you do a bit fishing yourself i can send a couple of slight seconds for you to bash around and let me no what you think. Thanks for the encouragment
