BAM Custom Lures

In the basement of his Iowa Falls home, Brendon McNulty has turned a hobby into a business. He has created BAM Custom Lures, an operation that allows him to craft hand-made fishing lures that are sold to the public.

Due to his roles as a middle school math teacher and a high school baseball coach, Brendon McNulty has enough on his plate. 

But the arrival of the novel coronavirus pandemic in March provided additional downtime, and led to the expansion of his hobby into a small business.

Brendon McNulty begins the process of creating a fishing lure by sketching and tracing it onto a piece of wood. The rough shape of the lure is cut with a band saw before the rough edges are sanded. He uses a box cutter knife, a carving knife or a chisel to complete that portion of the process.
