Anyone paint lures ?

I've been given a new lure for Christmas and it needs painting. I no longer have any of the equipment needed to make a decent job of it and was wondering if there is anyone out there who could undertake this for me ?

Thanks in advance

I have tried several times to put the handle back as it was, but the motor just isn't...

Re: Pike Fly Fishing

By the look of things Jason, not many. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I suspect there are two distinct groups of anglers who fly fish for pike: 1. Fly fishing enthusiasts who fish for multiple species on the fly and view pike as a worthwhile alternative to game or sea species. Ju...

Re: Rubberised landing net

I use a Savage Gear XL rubberised net in my boat too and find it to be very good. Back in the autumn I bought a 42" triangular net with rubberised mesh from ET for bait fishing. I haven't had chance to use it a great deal but it's been absolutely fine when I have - and it's much easier to get hooks ...
