About Dead Meat Custom Lures

My priority is making eyes for builders but I do love working with wood and painting baits and release a very small number of baits each year. These are meticulously built/painted, individually balanced, weighted, and thoroughly swim tested before even considering if I want to fish with or part with one of my baits. I really keep this portion of DMC as a hobby. So I DO NOT take custom orders. But keep an eye out for occasional releases on Social Media and eventually here.
