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

A few miles north of Orillia, Ontario sits a small creek, Shadow Creek, that connects to Lake Couchiching. 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 Shadow Creek towards the outskirts of Lake Couchiching where the large bass would feed on minnows, frogs and bugs. This is where the wooden waterbug lure was created more than twenty years ago.

In 1994 The Original Waterbug lure was made of pine wood and handpainted with picture frame eyescrews.  The Original Waterbug was very successful catching largemouth bass and northern pike that year. After a few years 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 several variations of both bass and pike lures.


Handcrafted wooden lures will always be a source of pride and remind us of our early days at Shadow Creek but our desire to provide an expanded imported plastic production line led MOTHER NATURE LURE CO. to introduce new underwater/surface swimbaits. The Lifelike Collection was launched in 2018. The Perch / Sunfish and Frog are now available as a collectible series line. Certain lures in each series will have limited availability and they will be retired over time thereby ensuring good value and a worthwhile addition to your tackle box collection. As always, you know that you can trust MOTHER NATURE LURE CO. to deliver a quality, detailed lure that will stand the test of time.
