Detail Design:

1.       Cut a piece of the ¾” steel strapping so it contains five large holes (there will be four smaller holes between the larger ones).

2.       Cut two pieces of the ½” copper strapping so they each contain five holes.

3.       Cut two pieces of brazing rod two inches long each and bend them in half so they form a “V” shape.

4.       Sandwich the steel strapping between the two copper pieces and place one of the pieces of brazing rod through the first set of holes. Place the second piece of brazing rod through the third set of holes.

5.       Tighten the brazing rods firmly using a vice. Now, you can bend the lure to any shape you desire.

6.       Put a split ring on each end of the lure and attach the treble hook at one end.

Tools and Materials: ½” copper strapping, ¾” steel strapping, two number 5 split rings, a number 4 treble hook, 4” of brazing rod, tin snips, pliers, and a vice
