Welcome to Winkey's Workshop. If you are wondering why the name Winkey, it is my childhood nickname given to me by my aunt Susan. I was born in March of 1963 in Boston, MA. After the blizzard of '78 my family decided to moved out to Washington state.
I have four beautiful children, Andy, Shawna, Stacey and Stephanie. I also have 5 amazing grandchildren, Alijah, Natalie, Adrianna, Ashlynn and Simon! We recently moved to Bothell, a town just east of Seattle to be closer to all of them. First time I have all my children and grandchildren nearby and all in one place.
I have many different skills, but in my spare time I like to paint bait, along with other hobbies such as drawing graphite pet portraits. Above is a graphite drawing I did for my daughter Stacey of her cat Waffles, sadly Waffles is no longer with us.
Winkey’s Lures came about after our move to Bothell. Since we are temporarily in an apartment, I needed to combine all my hobbies such as painting, drawing, designing, into one hobby. Thus, Winkey Lures was born. There will continue to be updates as this "hobby" gets going.
Each lure is custom handcrafted. Every crankbait is uniquely airbrushed, hand assembled, then dipped in a clearcoat non-yellowing seal so the paint job will last a long time. The Treble Hooks are dressed with Bucktail or without. Just grab a pole and go fishing!
