WILEY LURES is located in Ellwood City, PA and is solely owned and operated by Dale Wiley. For over 30 years, he has been making these lures by hand and continues to do so today. There are no "cutting corners" and no "mass production". Our customers know that Dale’s meticulous manufacturing process and attention to detail assures you get what you pay for - a top-quality, dependable product.

Wiley Lures are crafted from cedar and airbrush painted with top-quality polyurethane. Dale uses his own unique layering process to create intricate colors, scales, and patterns to accurately portray the look of musky, walleye, perch, bass, shiner, and more. Each lure is assembled by hand using stainless steel hardware, Mustad or VMC hooks, Lexan lips, decal or plastic eyes, and given a double layer of clear coat to add extra shine and durability. Individually tested in a local pond to assure proper action, each and every Wiley Lure comes to you ready to hit the water right out of the box!

As everyone knows, a top-quality product such as Wiley Lures takes time to make. We ask that you plan your purchase(s) accordingly to allow us to get the lures to you in time for tournaments, fishing trips, vacations, gifts, etc. We will ship your order as soon as possible. Orders are processed as they are received and we will NEVER sacrifice quality to "rush shipment".  We pay particular attention to our backlog and may disable our on-line store from time to time as necessary to control order volume.  Read our "Ordering/Shipping Info" for more details. We guarantee Wiley Lures are well worth waiting for!

Be advised - we do NOT "rush" any orders, offer quantity discount pricing, or sell unpainted lures therefore all requests for such will be denied.

      "Don't Be Fooled by Imitations"!  
      The "Wiley Lure" name is on every
       lure belly to verify authenticity.  If
       it's not there, it's NOT an  original        
                     Wiley Lure.
