Section 2: Covered in detail in this chapter you will find the 'how' and the 'why' a lure swims. Topics covered include lure design, lure body shape, diving lips angle, size, and shape and it's effect on lure action , position of the tow point and it's effect on the action of a lure and even water density fresh water vs salt water and how it might affect the buoyancy and hence action of your lures.
Altogether a very comprehensive chapter of the ebook with a lot of colour pictures and diagrams. Section 3: Tools That You'll Need - in this part of the ebook the author outlines all the various hand tool you will need for lure making and what each one will be needed for.
Although power tools are not needed to make the lures described in this ebook the author has included a section on power tools here and illustrates the point that though they are not necessary, if you have them they can be used to speed up the lure making process. If you were to download just one power tool for lure making the author tells you what that should be and why.
A fairly basic chapter of the book but all bases are covered as far as tools go. Section 4: Materials For Making Lures - in this section of the ebook you will find detailed information on the various woods for luremaking, their availability and suitability. Also covered are metals and plastics for making diving lips, types of wire for making through wires and tow points and advice on choosing split rings and hooks.
Section 5: There are absolutely no instructions whatsoever in the ebook on how to balance your wooden lures. By balancing a lure I mean the process of placing the sealed wooden lure body in water, with fittings attached, and hanging some weights from it in order to find out how much weight needs to be fitted internally to the lure and at what position s along the length of it's body.
So just to be clear, the ebook does not give instructions on how to figure out how much weighting your lure will need, what location within the lure to fit that weight and for the 'throughwire slot construction method' you are not shown how to 'drill out' the lure body for the weight or how to go about fitting that weight. To be fair to the author though not every lure you build will need internal weighting fitted. Also the author also provides you with twelve proven lure templates which you can work from without actually needing to balance the lures - follow the instructions exactly ie.
So without knowing how to balance a lure you will still be able to make plenty of lures by following the instructions given in this ebook. Having said that though I personally feel that learning the skill of balancing a wooden lure is a very important part of learning wooden lure making and as such any book or manual written on the subject should teach you how to do it!
Another thing that I found to be missing from the ebook was a series of pictures showing you how to fit the diving lips to your crankbaits. The procedure for making and fitting diving lips to your lures and the different materials for making them is actually well described in the book, however there are no pictures at all to show you how it's done.
Since the fitting of a diving lip to a crankbait is one of the most important parts of the crankbait making process I feel that a sequence of pictures showing you the steps involved should be included in any chapter in any book on the subject.
This is of course just my personal opinion but I was surprised at the lack of pictures in this section of the book since other sections of the book had plenty of pictures. I'm not quite sure if I'm right about this one but it looks like the last page of the ebook is missing. During the paragraph where we learn how to correct a crankbait that is not swimming in a straight line back to us the author refers to a diagram that illustrates the procedure involved, however there is no diagram included on the page and at the end of that paragraph the ebook ends.
I suspect that there is probably one more page to the ebook that contains the diagram mentioned in the text and probably also a closing comment of some sort from the author which is also absent from the ebook. This looks to be a fairly minor editing error in what is an otherwise very complete ebook. Some downloading Advice If you are considering downloading this ebook then there are a few things I can tell you before you do: There's only one place to download this ebook.
This I feel is just a little on the expensive side for a downloadable e-book. He has however included a few more lure making resources in the package, some of which address the things I did not like about the e-book. There are sites on the internet that claim to offer this ebook and many others as a free download in order to trick you into downloading some other software which can be harmful to your computer or signing up to an account of some sort with them.
If you see this ebook on offer cheaper than the stated price or from any site other than the authors website it will most likely be a scam of some sort. You can download this ebook safely and with confidence.
The author uses a company called Clickbank to accept payment and process all orders for the sale of his ebook. Clickbank is a well established founded in and very trustworthy company with a great online track record. I have bought numerous ebooks more than a dozen from various sites around the internet who have used Clickbank to process their orders and have never had a problem with them.
If for some reason you were not happy with your download then you have 60 days to claim a full refund. This ebook comes with some great bonuses. When you think of receiving a bonus with a product you are downloading you would be inclined to think of something small, a little something 'on the side' to sweeten the deal so to speak. In most cases you would be right. However in the case of this ebook the author actually over delivers on the bonuses and in my opinion the bonuses are worth far more than the original ebook itself!
You get three months of email support from the author.
You get an ebook with 12 templates for proven lures that the author has designed. You get a mini ebook with 65 general lure fishing tips.
You get a mini ebook on the subject of lure colours and how fish see and react to them. The Best Bonus The fifth bonus however- 30 days access to the authors lure making membership site I found to be of real value. The best part of the membership site is access to the authors Wooden Lures System manual. Basically this manual is an updated version of the original ebook that I am actually writing this review for. However the updated version is more than twice the length of the original ebook and covers an awful lot more lure making ground than the original.
When I first downloaded this ebook over a year ago early I must admit that due to all the hype on the authors website I was not quite sure what to expect. On my first read through the ebook I learned quite a lot of 'new' luremaking techniques and ideas and having referred back to the ebook now and again over the year or so I can honestly give this book a positive thumbs up! I did point out a few things earlier in my review that I felt are missing from this ebook.
In my opinion however the generous package of bonuses that are included with the download more than make up for this.
