    I used to make lures, but I didn't like all my hard work getting scratched and dented up, so I just went back to buying them for cheap. My home made ones are just for show.

    Hello Sayak...

    I know what do you meant... Even when you lose the most simple Fly that you have tied in your bench, is difficult to accept. But, I really enjoy a lot to do my own lures.
    Fortunately, I have not experienced to lose one of my homemade plugs yet. Definitively they take me lot of effort, time, work, patience, etc. If I think in terms of US$, and I have to estimate a price or value I really don't know how much it would worth each plug. Sometimes I have paid US$35-40 for a Japanese DUO lure (which are just a plastic serial product), but for me, my plugs would worth much more than that.
    Maybe you are right, I have some friends that they only want my plugs for show. To have some as part of their tackle-box. They offered to pay up to US$150 for each, but I'm not sure to sell them.
    Anyway, I will keep doing my Homemade plugs as a complement of my fishing passion.
