Making A Weight Shift Balsa Fishing Lure Part 2 of 3

It is Boxing Day and it is cold enough to snow, even the weather reports are predicting a drop of the white stuff but as usual they have overdone things and are calling it the start of the next ice age. I am testing my weight shift lure while my wife complains about the loss of feeling in her extremities. There are no pike in this lake and no perch of any size; a winter fish kill a few seasons ago took its toll so I am casting for leaves, pleasure and the camera.

Pike Pride

Ireland if it was not there a group of fishermen would have to invent it.

Seabooms a silicone alternative for soft plastics

Having taken to pouring soft plastic fishing lures in the garden on sunny days because the rest of my family do not share my liking for the smell of napalm in the morning, this looks like a decent alternative. is the kind of company I like; small, from the UK and run by a guy who gives a shit. So maybe when I have worked my way through the 5ltr of liquid PVC I am sitting on I may give the silicone a go.
