Pike lures

Over Christmas I had a go at making a pike lure or two, as its a bit of wood whittling you can do in front of the fire on a cold winter evening whilst with friends and family (it beats being out on your own in a cold shed!).   The ones I made are each about four inches long.  Fishermen use them to immitate bait fish or annoy the pike into lunging at them.  After the first, I got into the shaping and hand painting so made several more. They probably won't catch any fish (the images show them without their hooks fitted which I have yet to do), but it did make me think a lot about future design projects and surface decoration.
