Hooking up

"And it was pretty much the best underwater kiss of all time."

-- Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

Fishing lures 7-21-13

"You've got an awfully kissable mouth."

-- F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gatsby Girls

"Luck affects everything. 
Let your hook always be cast; 
in the stream where you least expect it there will be a fish."

-- Ovid

These adorable little fishing lures are homemade, by my son, Leo.
He's really good at making them.
He whittles the wood, meticulously paints on the spots and stripes, and attaches all of the hooks and hardware.
I love their silly faces, particularly their suction cup fish lips.
As charming as they appear, these lures actually do catch fish.
Maybe that's why. 
They're so cute, the fish can't resist the urge to eat them up!
