I started making fishing lures many years ago after balking at the price to replace those lost when fishing around rocks, trees and snags.
One the best, and most effective fishing lures under a variety of circumstances, is the spoon. As the name implies, the spoon fishing lure is shaped like a spoon you eat with.
After a fishing trip where I lost a bunch of lures, I looked at a standard culinary spoon. With a little effort I decided I could come up with an interesting – and cheap – fishing lure.
