    Review quote
    No lying or truth stretching with this book, the author, in great detail, shows you how to make those wooden lures that will snare the big ones. Rousseau shows you how to make the simplest to the more complicated articulated lures. Making the lures from various wood species is only part of the fun, Rousseau tells (and shows) you the art of painting the lures as well. Although the fish are color blind it's the patterns that attract them. The colors attract the fishers. Looking to net pike or musky? The author shows you step by step, how to make a mallard duckling to bring in those toughies. There are 11 winning lures that Rousseau details for the reader and he takes great care to help you make them accurately. A list of tools are outlined as well as a comprehensive list of some of the metal components required to make the lures work and sparkle. Fishers pay big bucks at outfitters for these lures so it could save you a lot of money. In fact, make it a cottage business for yourself. If you do any fishing at all, you will love this book.
