Paul Adams is the king of Do-It-Yourself fishing tackle.

If you are keen on making your own fishing tackle you could do no better than to have Adams mentor you via his Handmade Fisherman videos. His videos on how to make various lures are brilliantly-detailed and precise.

Here he takes you through every step of creating your very own soft plastic fishing lures using a a simple, but effective, paddletail design. We know it’s effective because he catches a nice northern pike on one of his plastics at the end of the video.

Almost all of the hand work and time that goes into making your soft plastics lies in the building of the form and mold. Once that’s finished, you can make paddletails to your heart’s content.
