JB-baits: Pikachu and other stories

Yes that is a Pikachu lure, made by Johannes Bang of Denmark. A lure builder with a drying rack to rival the work of Da vinci and for the video below he is making a spike to screw into his baits and hold them while they rotate on that rack as the epoxy cures.

 Johannes has been fly tying since he was a child, but he finally came to his senses and started making wooden lures and soft plastics about four years ago. He sells these through his facebook group JB-baits ( or you can find pics of his work on instagram (

And then there is his Youtube channel. I couldn’t resist this video below as there is never anything wrong with watching other people's lures underwater.

Lake Fork Guy: Making Fishing Lures From Dip Cans

Lake Fork Guy has all the kit, the bass boat, the engines, the fish finders, not to mention a collection of rods and reels that would put a tackle shop to shame, but maybe it all comes down to having the right dip can on the day and what lures you can make from them. For me these two videos share a little of that bonkers experience that comes from catching fish on lures you have a least partly made yourself.
