There has been a constant evolution of the processes and materials that go into building a bait since the creation of the first artificial lure. From the earlier metal models to wood and then plastic, the effort to find the perfect material to create the most consistent and lifelike action has been relentless. For Don Hultstrand of Bagley Lures, without a doubt balsa is best.
“Balsa has a unique buoyancy, the right type of grain, it can hold paint without changing its characteristics and it’s really consistent in the water,” says Hultstrand.
