  1. Hi, I have been looking around to find answers to some of my quries, i am into the addiction of timber lure making as hobby. Spend 9-10 hours on job and remaining hours on lure making and love wood carving. 1). does lure requires weight even whenit sit horizontal on the water surface and gives a good head to tail side to side action. Does it requires to sink down the lure slowly or fast either way to reach at the depth of getting the target species of fish. 2). i have seen in majority of lure making tutorials the weight is placed one at front and other at rarer of belly eye. In some cases 2 weights at front and one or 3 at the rarer of belly eye. What function it gives to the lure apart from balancing. 3).what action of the lure is expected if i put 2 gm weight in the front and .5gm to 1 gm at the rarer of belly weight. (more weight in the front & less at the rarer of belly eye) It has been proved that - line tying, bib shape , angle of bib, design of lure affects / give action to the lure but i would appreciate if someone share his experience or resource which will help me to clear what functionality of weighing a lure apart from balancing and acheiving depth. Thanks, Regards, Raghubir
