Handmade fishing lures are one of our favorite things we enjoy when we discover a new artist here at Skiff Life. These craftsman develop fully functional art that captures the spirit of the bait as well as the functionality required to catch your next trophy fish.
We recently discovered Antonio Conteddu, an italian artist with a passion for fishing. Here he’s revisited a classic: The Copper Mullet. This fishing lure features five hand carved gills and real copper fins to match the body color.
