    Hello, my name is Mike but everyone calls me PAP, I have a great passion for fishing!! like I eat, sleep, and talk fishing. I also am inspired by the new "real image" lures that cost up to $30.00 a piece, doesn't sound that bad till you start loosing one here & one there, it adds up quickly. I always have made my own trolling harnesses and spinners. there's a great feeling of accomplishment when you can trick any living thing to approach a lure you made and the fish is in his/her there own environment!!! now I would like to learn how to airbrush my own lures such as spoons & unpainted body baits. If I could design my own lures by being able to operate an airbrush, by me knowing what colors are seen, as light filters out colors. Like the color red is the first to disappear in the first 10ft. of the water column. I was thinking I might be on to something!!! BUT I'm not artistically inclined. I have a hard time drawing Hang man. LOL thanks for taking the time to read this and maybe I'll be alright with your help.

    Well being darker colors for cloudy and or deep waters plus higher vibration you could really catch the big one. welcome pap. You sound just fine to me. You like fishing and airbrushing. Stand up guy!

    Firstly welcome aboard from Australia. Where do you call home ?
    there are a few lure makers around, so I'm sure they'll be more than happy to give you a guiding hand.

    As far as being artistically challenged, I could only draw stick figures, so if you can do a whole hangman then you're ahead of me.
    Its getting to the point we may have to consider a 'Lure' section on the forum...... Hmmmm

    Welcome aboard PAP! I'm new, too. I love fishing but never considered painting my own lures. Right now I'm happy when I've painted a decent looking Easter egg lol

    Hi pap from the uk:) Hope you're prepared to give up a little fishing time lol. Airbrushing has a bit of a learning curve, but there are lots of folks around here to help. But be warned it can become a bit of an obsession itself lol.

    Do you have any equipment yet? If not please ask advice here first to make sure you have the right airbrush/compressor/paint for the job.
