How to make a Balsa Crankbait




Well it is a start……………………

   I finally edited together my balsa crankbait video. It feels like an age since I started messing around with this little lure and hopefully later this week I will after a long recuperation from my recent illness get a chance to throw it back in some water.  Maybe I will remember how to catch some fish but that is never guaranteed. Part two will be along soon.

  3. Quick question for you. Why not use the 2 half construction like you did in some of your other builds compared to cutting the slot for the through wire?

    1. Originally I was going to make this a two piece lure but I wanted to try something different, I am learning that I do not like doing the same thing or in the same way over and over again. It is hard to say what made be choose the slot option, but for me this lure is a lot faster to make and maybe a little more accessible.
