Hi everyone,

I found a great website with heaps of tips about home made lure design. Most of the articles focus on do-it-yourself lure making. some (but not all) of these techniques could be very useful when making squid jigs (especially the painting of scales on a lure).

here is direct links to some of the better articles -

i don't think you need to be a member to view the articles. in any case, membership would be free so what do you have to lose? if you are afraid to give them your email address then just setup a new email account at hotmail or yahoo or something and then use that for online registrations. i think tackle underground is a pretty good site though perhaps they don't talk that much about squid jigs. i haven't checked lately.

cheers, glen
