Charlie,My kids and I build our own bait rigs every time we go, whether we need new ones or not. They get to use their own at first and they want to, if they don't work poppa has a tackle box full of stuff to try. The oldest has a friend who ties his own flies, he's pretty good at it. I simply haven't had the junk out of the closet for awhile nor have I had time for teaching the process. Vacations are great for these kinds of things; my only issue is that we have a slip on camper which tends to limit what we can take.Its fun to make your own lures too. I decent spoon and a "super-duper" can be made from yardsale silverware. All you need is a snipper capable of clipping the handle off, a pair of pliars for bending and a file for smoothing, oh and a drill to make the hole for the slip rings. (a bit of polish can help too) I've snipped apart old electric irons and made my own colorado stringers, that was a hoot. I've widdled out of pine minnows and painted them with testors lol, today I think I would use something better: I've even widdled a passable frog but a friend's dad could tie one out of yarn that worked better. oh well.jack
