Mother Nature Lure Co. has been designing and creating wooden topwater baits and surface lures for over 20 years. Each lure is hand assembled and handpainted the same way lures were made a 100 years ago.

A few miles north of Orillia,Ontario sits a small creek that connects to Lake Couchiching called Amigo Creek. Every spring this creek would flood and become a perfect breeding ground for spawning large mouth Bass. After spawning season the bass would travel out of Amigo Creek towards the outskirts of Lake Couchiching where the large bass would feed on many of the minnows,frogs and bugs. This is where the original wooden Waterbug lure was created 20+ years ago. In 1994 The original Waterbug lure was made of pine wood and handpainted with picture frame eyescrews.  The waterbug lure was very successful catching largemouth bass and northern pike that year. After a few year of making prototypes and experimenting with topwater baits the Mother Nature Lure Co. was born. Since 1996 the Mother Nature Lure Co. has been creating and designing bass and pike lures of all designs.
