Painting with Mel Lures, Camo Pike

I have to admit with this video I have a vested interest as a good part of the camera work is mine. I filmed it last year in Ireland and it has been sat on my hard drive for a very long time so Maciej (of Mel Lures) who I was filming thought he would edit it together and put it on his channel and to be honest the editing is what makes it. The only problem is I had lost a some off the files, when I say lost maybe deleted would be more accurate , it is not something I remember doing but then remembering yesterday is often a challenge.

Anyway he has done a better job than I would've done (not sure I should tell him that ) and added  a voice-over which explains things very clearly, oh yeah and he went and caught some fish with it. Once again people go wear out his channel with likes and shares and if you have not subscribed to his channel I can only assume you're using a computer in prison.

While I am in the mood for self promotion here is a video I made about Maciej last year as a bonus.

Team Adarix makes, rigs and fishes soft plastic lures

I am not a big fan of Sweden after spending half my weekend inside one of the monsters they created that is Ikea. I was forced to answer questions on which particular piece of glassware was more suited to our household; which is really very difficult when no part of you cares in the slightest. I was not the only one to suffer this fate, I did bump into a Minotaur who was looking for some greek guy while Mrs Minotaur was asking him about soft furnishings.

Anyway, rant over. Despite Sweden's Crimes against humanity on the positive side they do have more than their fair share of lure makers as these soft plastic shad videos show. As my grasp of Swedish only extends to knowing the name of coffee tables I cannot tell you much about the guy or guys behind the vids only to say they look young which may tell you more about me than them.

I invite you to take a moment, maybe put some ABBA on the (whatever device is current) and see how lure making is done.  I have included three videos which are roughly translated as Making soft plastic shads, Rigging and Fishing and they do all three very well.

I know as older people there is a fashion for moaning about what young people do or don’t do, but I have got to be honest and say I should of been doing what these guys are doing when I was their age instead wearing out street corners. Let us send this guy or guys some encouragement on their channel and videos maybe, subscribe, like, share, leave a comment.

Viva la Sweden
