My Bass Story

It all began with a young man's desire to escape stress.  As I was attempting to navigate the demands of supporting a young family, I thought fishing was the answer to relieving my stress; and needless to say, I was HOOKED.  I became an unofficial expert on all the trends connected to bass fishing, but often found myself studying a new lure I had bought and thinking, "If only the eyes were downcast or the purple had just a brighter sheen."  Now a decade later, self-taught, I can customize my lures by painting blanks that replecate most of the most popular brands on the market.  Because the market is limited, it is often a trial to find knock offs of high quality. This frustration has lead me to offer other fishermen an on-line store where they can find high quality blanks that mirror some of the most popular brands trending in the bass fishing world.
