QUICK VISIT TO THE CUSTOM LURES FAIR IN FERRARA

Like every year the guys at Project bait organize a boot at the Ferrara Fishing Fair to give space to some of the more talented lures builders in Italy.
It is a small show but with good public and growing importance.
Timing this year was a bit unlucky for me as I came back from Guinea Bissau fishing trip the exact day of beginning of the show, so I couldn't take part, anyway I made a quick visit the following days to meet friends and toappreciate their new creations...
Here, in random order, are some of the most noticeable ones by my fishing point of view...

First, the maxy mouse by my friend Mauro Borselli of X-Flies, a jointed floating rat imitator with interchangeable accessories ( lip, head weight, replacable tails and legs ) that can make it dive, pop or sink; it is made of hardened foam, covered with sintetic fur with obviously through wire, and even if thought for wels catfish and pikes I am sure it would work wonders for bass and maybe exotic predators like aimara or murray cod...


Remaining in freshwater, a selection of small swimbaits designed to fish for marbled trouts at night, pure wood, by Alessandro "spoonboy" Hoban:


Going toward the salt, Andrea Pedaci nice lures, selection of poppers, sticks and other models:



Enriko Piola's Project bait stickbait, big lure for tunas and gt, it completes a range of small stickbaits and poppers for all marine predators, resin made...


The "Nessie" by Macchia's Lead, by Giovanni de Francesco,... one of the best needlefish imitators around, resin made:


And last of the line, a dive in soft plastic with the spectacular goby imitator by Andrea Zovatto, it looks alive in water:


I surely missed other talented builders, but I was in hurry and concentrated on what caught my eye first... next year I will be there with more attention and time.
