Frech Style Banana Wood Lure Kit

Custom 3D shaping and another Salty's exclusive!

I believe this is the first 3d fishing lure kit ever made! I worked on this project for almost 1 year to get to this point. It's our first fully computer designed 3D cut lure!

We've made it easy and simple to duplicate a real nice symmetrical perfect profile-the body easily sands down until there's no cross hatches visible anymore!
At a full 7.5" long, Finished size ~4oz., this closely resembles an adult menhaden/bunker.
With it's large .092 magnum stainless screw eyes this lure will stand up to virtually any saltwater gamefish!

Heavy/Large size belly keel weight as in the originals made famous by the professor himself. Includes a pair of our retro yellow flat eyes as used in the lures of yesteryear.

All parts included except for hooks and split rings. We recommend Rosco 5H split rings and VMC 3/0 9626 Permasteel Saltwater treble hooks.
No tail hook is used on this lure-just a dressed bucktail stub.
Lure can optionally be routed inside with a dremel or carving tool to make lure through wired. Do this before the halves are glued for best results.
Rattles can be installed inside very easily by hollowing out a space. The dual shell architecture lends itself to some interesting ideas.

This is an advanced kit and not meant for first time or inexperienced builders. We give you a 3D profile which is glued together to get the full profile,
it's predrilled for the belly keel weight only, all other holes are drilled by the builder with a simple battery drill or a drill press.
Requires 1/16+1/4" drill bits, drill, epoxy, foam backed sandpaper, pliers, pair woodworking clamps, and a file.

Can be painted with Salty's Lure Paint, Createx Air brush paints, or with acrylic paints and a small brush from AC Moore,
let them dry thoroughly and coat with a few coats of clear spray paint or brush with epoxy etc in thin coats for more durability.
Lures need to be finish sealed to prevent water intrusion. More information on our free lure forum linked above.
We carry a full line of epoxy topcoats, hooks, paint, etc here: Lure Hardware

Limited availability! Due to how long it takes to manufacture these they will be in short supply.

A bunch of bananas :)

Here's what someone did to through wire this lure. Simple and effective. Remember the tail of this lure should not have a hook on it.

Here's another through wire. This is done with a Dremel tool and a small round bit.
