Fishing Lure Mold Making
You can make your own fishing lure mould. (fishing lure image by sasha from

Making your own lure will require a mould, which can be made relatively easily and will allow you to pour plastic inside to create a new lure. A homemade mould, instead of buying one from a fishing store, will also personalise your fishing experience and make catching a fish that much more enjoyable.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

  1. 1

    Put a modelling clay bock into a warm area such as in sunlight or in a kitchen. Leave the clay and let it soften to the consistency where you can push a soft plastic bait into the clay.

  2. 2

    Get a soft plastic lure like a crayfish, lizard, worm or another type. Push two impressions into the block.

  3. 3

    Work the lure slowly in the clay until half the lure is beneath the clay surface. Lift the bait from the clay. Repeat the process if you want to make more than one mould.

  4. 4

    Put the modelling clay with impressions in a cool spot. You might only need to allow the clay to set and cool, depending on the type of clay you are using. If you are using clay that requires heating, place the block in an oven or kiln until it is hard.

  5. 5

    Put a clear sealant coat onto the set mould. Coat it thoroughly to prolong the mould's life. It will also fill imperfections and allow the plastic to release when it's cooled.
