In this DIY, I’ll explain how to make a wasp fishing lure (4 cm/3 gr).

1- Reflexion and drawings are the more important steps: knowing where you wish to go!

2- Trimming of the sketch and wood tracing. Here, I used balsa wood, easy to work and easy to find in modelling shops

3- Raw shaping with a cutting bandsaw

6- Cut the form across its length with a saw blade. Be careful! The balsa wood is very fragile!

10- Balancing of the insect using soft leads: one of the more important step! The wasp must perfectly float taking into account varnish and painting
