This site is still under its old name and old E-Mail address. In the future it will be changed to Christian Fisherman. This current site will contain a new link to the new site but I am not sure when things will be up and running, so check back from time to time. We will transition as quickly as we can and keep you up to date on all new products. Thank you and God Bless.

No matter if you are fishing for fish or fishing for men, it's still fishing. After all you still have to cast your line, set the hook and reel in your catch. That is what Christian Fisherman is all about, ( FISHING.) Mark 1:17 reads: Then Jesus said to them, " Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men."
In 2010 we founded Tommys Hand Made Lures. That name carried until 2014 until it had it's real name ( Christian Fisherman). Though "Tommy" still hand crafts each lure, the honor and glory needs to go to where it belongs, " Our Heavenly Father" because if he we not involved, none of this would be possible.
So my fishing adventures, started when I was a little kid. My family and I had really no money to speak of. I suppose you could say we were (dirt poor) " times were tough " but we knew that through our belief in ( GOD ) and our knowledge of fishing, we would make it. Guess what, WE DID!!! We made it!!! Like any one going through trials, it won't last forever. You will make it too!!! Through prayer and faith you will make it!!!
Fishing is something that is AWESOME though, it is bonding time. That great bonding time with friends or family that can completley change the course of a life. One moment, One Cast, One Day, One Adventure, it can set you on a course that you never knew was even there. If you really want to get to know someone or just make great memories, get in a boat, go to a beautiful spot, make your cast, pray for the best and the number one thing is "Talk " Trust me, it works!!!
Fishing, like Hunting, is a Sport/ Hobby that will offer a return, if you want it to. Like in my case, when I was younger - fishing offered food on the table, plus a bigger respect for my family, life and a bigger belief and love for God. " I would say that's a pretty big return."
In 2010 we made our first lure, to say the least it is not the best lure I have ever seen, really it is kind of ugly and very heavy. I still have that lure to this day, as a reminder of where we started and a reminder of where we are going. After several years of practice, our lures have become more like little pieces of underwater art work, at least I think so- I sign my name to the bottom of each one of them. The best part is, they act just as good in the water as they look on land " AND YES THEY DO CATCH FISH." It seems that every lure we produce gets better every time and that makes me very happy.
Christian Fisherman is more than people making lures and wanting other people to buy them. It is more of a mission than anything. With every sale of every product, a portion of money is donated to Christian Charities, Food Banks and any Faith Based Organization. Imagine that, you can have good quality product from a Christian Based Organization and help people that are in need at the same time. " That's what I call fishin'."
So you want to know what we build here at Christian Fisherman. We build Custom Bass Lures, Road Runners, Wordless Bible Rooster Tails, Wordless Bible Necklaces and we have shirts available in Forest Green and Pink.
Please, take a look at the site. Let us know what you think. Maybe there is something you just can not live with out. If not, I hope that there is something that we can do for you in the future. Or maybe, you may be walking through a store and see some Christian Fisherman product there. If that happens - my prayer is, give us a try -I'm pretty sure you will be glad you did. Just remember ( Faith- Family and Fishing is REEL catchy) As always, until we meet, or until we meet again ( Happy Fishing and God Bless. ) Tommy
