Trout lures - 100% hand made from balsa wood

I make hand-made trout lures from balsa wood .

Each and every piece is tested and tuned individually, to make sure it has the best swimming action in any waters.

I've been personally searching for trouts for a while, and not being able to find any that would satisfy my needs, I've decided to do it myself - and what a journey it was.

I start with cutting the balsa wood shape for each model. Then I insert a stainless wire and the weight system, followed by aluminum foil to add the fish the undewater flash that atracts fish but also the scales texture and the head gills.

Then, I add a layer of epoxy resin to add resistance to the body and foil.

Once this is done, I start the painting process - this is the fun part; I usually follow certain colour schemes which I know that work for me ,i search and try to imitate the most common minnow patterns that can be found in trout streams or lakes in different parts of the world like the vairon that has lots of subspecies  ,also try to make trout patterns as i know trout eat their own juveniles like brown trout ,rainbow trouts brook trout . But also make custom colours and clasic colours that are already tested for many years .

The end result is indeed satisfying - and it gives me immense pleasure to capture fish with every occasion.

All of the clients who order from me are in the end extremely satisfied, and they always come back. I delivered orders in UK, France, Ireland, Sweden, Poland, and all the way to Australia and the US.
