Hey everyone just wondering if anyone has decided to make some little lures from pennies? Sand'em off maybe tray some airbrush on them? :huh:

When I was a kid a bunch of us used to put pennys and dimes on the railroad tracks and wait for the train to come. We would then find them and they were flatter than pi##! We would then make spinners and arrowheads out of them.

Just because you fish a lot doen't mean you are great or even good. It just means you fish a lot!!

I remember the pennies on the train tracks as well Perry! Although today if one got caught doing that, they'd probably be thrown in jail! lol. If anyone does make some penny lures... post them in the gallery for us all to see or in this thread. Thanks.

JAIL!?!?!?... maybe a penny-tentiary.

Dimes, Perry??? I'd be flat broke if I wasted my entire allowance that way when I was a kid...

The penny lure idea is pretty cool. I may have some pressed pennies lying around from those souvenir machines... http://www.pressedpennies.com/

I started reading a book about anti-gravity and I just couldn't put it down.
