When my parents came to Mexico to visit they brought a suitcase full of goodies for us – a time honored method of cruisers getting kit. One of the things that we ordered was a huge amount of fishing gear. For whatever reason I was way into the idea of making hand lines and lures for us.
I’m not going to post the entire process yet. I made two test lures and one test handline and we are going to go out for a week in the islands and test them out. If all goes well, I’ll post the process. In the meantime, here is a peek.
The top hoochie has a treble hook and the bottom has a double. Both are made with wire leaders to foil fish from biting off the lures.
