Jim Mayes, a master fisherman dedicated to catching fish on tackle and lures that are products of his own creativity, explores the use of the newest materials for tackle making, notably graphite and boron blanks for rod-building. He also discusses the dramatic increase in the use of easily molded jigs and spinner-baits by fishermen in all waters.
With the skill in guiding the hobbyist that he demonstrated in How to Make Your Own Knives, Mayes considers all elements of tackle making, from workbench equipment, rods, and bucktails, to worms, lures, plugs, reels, and a potpourri of money-saving tips on care and maintenance.
A gem for the practical-minded fisherman and woman who enjoy, for reasons of pleasure and economy, making and repairing their own equipment.
