LURES

 

FINE HAND CHISELED FISHING LURES

Each and every lure from Lure Foundry is tooled by hand in a manner reminiscent of the classic era of lure making.  Only the finest grades of domestic and exotic hardwoods are used to create the color patterns of these lures.  No paint, stains or dyes are used, only the finest grade clear topcoat is applied to the finished product.

 Musk-O-matic Fine Grade $150

This lure is from LF’s Musk-O-matic Design Series (Slow Wobbler) and features two contrasting hardwoods,Yellowheart, and Ebony, to create the classic “Tiger” pattern found on many vintage lures.  Mortise and Tenon joinery is used on these segmented lures for added strength, and then are hand turned on a lathe to the final shape you see.  Each lure is fitted with glass eyes, the same as used on most musky lures constructed between the 1930’s and 1950’s.  Stainless steel and nickel hardware is then added along with VMC’s Black Nickel 3626 4X Strong Hooks.  Wood body length approx 7″ X 1 1/8 ” O.D.
