In our column Hardbodies & Softcores, Frank Steinmann presents Lures you wouldn’t want to miss in your tackle box. 

Patrick Bateman, serial killer and protagonist of Bret Easton Ellis’ cult novel “American Psycho”, called his mostly female victims “hardbodies”, before he subjected them to an exotic “physical examination”. At this point we present you exclusively handmade artificial lures of the categories hard- and softbait, that are “most freaky” and “killer jobs “. Have fun with these handpicked works of true art from the lure building scene. A little less splatter than Bateman did provide, but just as much fetish!
