And thank you for visiting the Willamette Weapon Custom Lures website.



Having been an avid bass angler for almost 30 years, I understand the importance of having high quality lures, in patterns that are best suited to the body or bodies of water I'm fishing in.



It gives me confidence and a competitive edge over other bass anglers to use my fishing lure. I've always had a fascination with what makes them tick. What do they eat? Why do they eat it? Where do they live? In particular, how can I make my lure look more appealing than what they have in the stores. I've spent a lot of time and energy exploring these questions.



   Here in the Pacific Northwest we have a diverse and unique bass fishery that is incredible. When I moved here several years ago, I noticed that the forage base is very different than anything I'd ever fished before. I set out to find lures and colors best suited for what the bass key in on here.



There is a lot of stuff that is good. I demand excellence! I decided to actually start catching what these fish are feeding on. I studied, photographed and took notes, finding variations, In some cases taking it home. Using my 20 years of experience painting and modifying lures, I matched the colors with my airbrush. It took a lot of time and patience to develop patterns that work. Once the word got out that I was producing these great fish catching patterns, I decided to open up shop and share my talent with you. Know that every pattern I develop has been meticulously thought out, field tested and perfected. I will continue to develop fish catching patterns in the years to come as I learn more about what makes these fish tick. I am so grateful to be able to share these patterns with you and watch you become a more successful angler.



Tight lines!
