Not long ago, I posted about an Oregon lure designer customizing Kwikfish with some killer (and productive) paint jobs. I hinted that adding subtle touches to your own lures isn't a bad idea. Then lo and behold, a good buddy sends me info on the lure below made by Hawaii-based Pili. The bodies are made of an absorbent urethane--kind of like skateboard wheels--and soak in the color from permanent markers, making your custom pattern, well, permanent. My question is, do you see this as a useful angling tool, or kid's art project?
