Unusual combinations can be a good thing

Submitted to News

I like it when two opposites work well together. Maybe it’s because of the surprise pairing of two unlikely thingseach thing is good and unique on its own—but becomes great when combined with its soulmate. Let’s review the standards: Chocolate and peanut butter, Sonny and Cher, Tom and Jerry, chicken and waffles, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. All unlikely. All great combos.

I’m here to state my case for one of my own favorite pairings because it unites two very unlikely elements. The kitchen spoon and the treble hook get combined to make a fishing lure. This project also pairs two other great things: Making and Fishing. Is this project becoming about two great pairs or four great things? I’m not sure.

What I am sure about is if you like the following things: Spoons, treble hooks, rotary tools, making things, fishing, making gifts, and wearing eye protection. You’ll like this project.

What combinations sound odd but work well? Did you make this project? Can you think of other homemade fishing lures? Share it with us in the comments below!
