If you are both an angler and creative, have we found the project for you! Paul Adams is a fisherman who has a knack for the creative production of fishing bait. There are a few things you’ll need to hunt down from your local hardware or hobbu shop, such as the silicon, liquid PVC, and safety equipment – but a lot of it can be found at the supermarket. The full list of materials required is as follows:

-Wooden Lollipop stick
-Mitre saw or ruler and fine saw
-100grit sandpaper attached or laid on a flat surface
-Craft Knife
-Aluminium car body mesh (normally available from auto supplies)
-Large grip clips
-Polymer clay (Super Sculpey) (craft shops/art shops or online)
-Pasta Machine or rolling pin and flat surface
-Standard kitchen oven
-Ceramic tile
-Wet and dry sand paper starting no less than 400 grit to as fine as you have
-Cotton Cloth
-Piece of picture framing glass as mould base
-Lego mould box
-Low viscosity RTV silicone such as Polycraft GP-3481-F RTV Silicone
-Pouring Lures
-Flexible liquid PVC, lure lube and colours for making the lures
-Microwave oven
-Microwave safe Jug

That IS a lot of stuff. But most of it is cheap and accessible. One of the coolest parts of the video is near the end when you see Paul testing the lure – it really works – and makes the investment in all those materials worth it. Well, I guess we haven’t tested it ourselves, but they sure do look good!
