I have seen many home made lures on this forum and one night I was laying in my bed thinking when I felt a sharp tug in my brain and I immediately knew that this was the small brother of our beloved fishing bug.The deadly HMLM bug {home made lure making bug}:twisted::twisted: . This little critter takes control over your brain and manipulates your thoughts making you want to make a new lure.And I was infected [smilie=damn.gif] , So the next morning ,I went to buy some devdhari wood as advised by Ralstonraz and started whittling and after nearly 3 hrs of whittling , got the rough shape ready but it left me some big blisters on my fingers [smilie=cwl.gif][smilie=cwl.gif][smilie=cwl.gif] , Sanded it down to get it smooth and painted it The RedHead Style .After that exams started :(:( so the HMLM bug hibernated [smilie=zzz.gif][smilie=zzz.gif][smilie=zzz.gif]. It woke up again last week when I googling about tube lures , So Got a pipe with a good thickness and began to work [smilie=fixtit.gif] , as we know ,pipes are coiled to store them , so i needed to find a way to straighten them , Had a metal stick ,thin enough to fit in through the pipe so left it overnight. Waiting for results [smilie=huh-ani.gif]. Below are the work in progress pics . Will try to complete them before 20th (Exams again)

HMLM bug is highly infectious and once bitten there is no cure for it, and you will be seen in timber, hardware and paint shops

@Venkat - I agree... :) We need to exchange notes on the lures that you have made.
