The late Jim Rizzuto was an authority on sports fishing, Hawaiian lures and lure making. 

He wrote about the Hawaiian sports fishing scene beginning in 1964 and was one one of the earliest freelance writers for Marlin Magazine--putting the Kona fishing and tournament scene on the map.  

His love and passion of saltwater fishing and big game lures lead him to learn how to make his own lures. In Lure-Making 101/102 Jim Rizzuto shares his vast knowledge about lure making and the history of Hawaiian lures. The book is 140 pages and includes color photos.

Lure-Making 101/102 is the lure makers bible. However if you are interested in learning more about the history of Big Game Lures than you will not find another book with this kind of information.
