Wooden Dowel + Shoelace Fishing Lure
This is a great way to put together a nice, simple fishing lure at home. Best part is, you might already have these pieces at your house! If not, they'll only cost you a few bucks to buy and then you can pull this together. Picture of Fishing Lures In this instructable I will teach you how to make a simple and inexpensive fishing lure out of common household materials. In this model of fishing lures, you can completely customize it to your liking by painting it however you desire. And without further ado, let's begin! ------------------------------------------- What You'll Need: - A small wooden dowel (normally used to connect two fittings together) - Shoelace (preferably white so you can paint it later and so it is more visible in the water, as opposed to black or darker colors) - Small hook (I got mine from a framing kit) - Superglue - Drill with a drill bit the size of the end of the shoelace - Mechanical pencil ----------------------------------------------------------- Instructions: 1. Prep the shoelace: cut the end of the shoelace 1-1.5 inches from the end of the hard part. 2. Take the pencil, and stick the lead out a bit. Use this lead leader to "fray" the non-hard end of the shoelace. 3. Screw your hook into one side of the dowel rod. Tighten the ring on the hook and/or hot glue it if it seems like it won't stay intact. 4. Drill a hole on the other side of the wooden dowl that will fit the entire hard part of the shoelace. 5. Take your superglue and add a little bit to the hole. Stick the shoelace in and let it dry. 6. Once dry, you're finished! Optional: Paint the dowel and the skirt using water resistant paint to look like one of your favorite lures.
