I frequent some other fishing sites where there are some folks I would consider master lure builders.One fellow from Finland makes wood lures, and IMO makes some of the best & most artistic I've ever seen. There's also a fellow in Japan who makes lures & his are equally as much works of art as they are functional fishing lures.Since you're just getting into it, don't let all the information overwhelm you. Take it in a little at a time, and start simple, then expand from there. I started about 50 years ago, and still have so much I would like to learn, that I doubt I'll ever learn it all. It's been a life long endeavor for me, which is one of the reasons I've stayed interested in making lures. I tie fishing flies too! I don't have any lures that I like best as far as making them. They all have a place in my tackle boxes, and that's why I make them. What I really like is being able to make exactly what I want, or because it gives me the ability to experiment with ideas. Although, because I make lures & tie flies, I'm very fond of hair jigs, and they're some of my favorite types of lures to fish with too! Here's a pic of some of my hair jigs. Simple, but quite productive!
