Hi Fishraiders, This is a topic which I hope will put a smile on your face during these winter's days when fishing is just that little bit harder. Years ago I was in New Zealand in a Hunting and Fishing shop when I saw a fly fishing lure in the shape of a mouse and had a WTF moment. Later on I found out that sometimes mice have to swim across a body of water and become fair game to the fish below. Later on I came across a lure in the shape of a swimming duck complete with stinger hooks (which I have also seen recently in one of the fishing chains). Turns out this one was designed for pike which have been known to take the odd duckling or three. The duck lures promotional page from the manufacturer: http://savage-gear.com/product/3d-suicide-duck/ A few years ago I came across some articles for the worst lures ever and it still makes me laugh. Follow this link: https://www.outdoorlife.com/10-worst-fishing-lures-all-time#page-5 My personal favourite in their list is the "hover lure" which is a dragonfly lure complete with lily pad. Researching further I even found a promotional video: I've heard the line between genius and insanity is a thin one and I wonder which side of the line the designers were and I'd love to know what other weird and funny lures there are out there which others have come across. I'd also be interested in ones which have been made as a one off by fellow recreational fishers as an attempt to try something new. Hope this made you smile. Derek
