    Default home made spinners/spoons?

    Wanting to take a shot at making my own spinners/spoons! Any ideas where i should start? I've looked around and seen a few tackle stores selling some of there own creations but never see any blades except for colorado blades! And does anyone know if there hard to make? I just wanna catch a fish on a spinner i made myself! Thanks!

    I would go to army and navy. They have spoons there for about $2.50 for a pack of ten. I like to use it with split rings and swivels to connect it to a hook. I also use orange beads or jensen eggs or wool sometimes. Somebody posted a picture in the past couple of weeks that had a picture of what I was doing. It ends up costing well under a buck a spoon.

    These home made spoons are absolutely the best lure I have ever had for cohos.

    Coho killer....
    Check out www.luremaking.com (download their lure making guide) and www.pen-tac.com. Making your own spinners not only saves $$$ but is a very rewarding experience. Thats all I've done for the last 25+ years.

    Pen-tac has spinner blades not normally available most places (eg 24K gold, genuine silver and black oxide). Those 3 colours make killer spinners. Gold is awesome for high/dirty water conditions and are not that expensive. Try doubling the blades up...they can be certified fish slayers. Let me know if you'd like more info on this.

    Colorado blades are great for slow water but French blades are a better all round choice in my opinion and ones I use regularly. Fluted blades are excellent but are rather rare here. If you can find fluted blades, you are halfway to Coho heaven . In the 'old' days, fluted blades were the blade of choice but for whatever reason, they dropped off the radar. You can find them by searching online catalogs that cater to species such as pike and walleye. A good start is www.fishinhole.com, www.cabelas.com or Wholesale Sports in Calgary.

    Here's what I've made and use. For slow water I like to keep them short but not too light. These are crude but you should be able to see how they're made.

    Try www.rvrfshr.com

    Owners name is Joe, he's a friend of mine from Washington.

    His customer service and product are excellent and his gear is making lots of friends in the Salmon/Steelhead world.

    He has great components for all spoon and spinner needs.
    His sickle hooks are without peer at holding fish, trust me on this .

    You can see his ads in STS magazine.

    Have to say the same as Bent Rod, go with RVRFSHR spoons. They're all I used this year for coho and had an excellent year. Great company to business with
