I am trying to make some homemade lure but dont know where to start, I am thinking about making swimbait and popper and want to use resin as the material. Where is the best place that I can get resin and also what do you use as the mold. I will be making my own shape out of clay and want to know what to use as the outer mold.

Thank you,
Topper. :D :D

Check out Larry's site, he has a lot of good info about working with resin.

I've duplicated serveral lures using resin, but was not real happy with the way they swim. If you going to make poppers make sure to add the micro baloons. I'll stick to using wood !!!!! Good luck !!
