no twist. they are the ones I used so often the last year. they are inexpensive and work well for a slow retrieve since they are very light.318 said:I have been thinking about making some spinners. The only design I can find involves putting your blade on a split ring between two barrel swivels. It seems to me this cause excessive line twist. Would this be the case or am I wrong?
Just a reasonable match according to what you are targeting. For blade #5 I used hooks Lazer #2, and 3# sometimes. Plain silver blades or blades with some blue color worked always best for me. I am not sure this is allowed but I hear someone also having three to four blades along the line to simulate more fishes BUT, importantly the hook only on the last one.Steve-O said:Is there a rule of thumb to go buy when matching a hook to a blade, for example what hook would be best for a #4 colorado?
Difficult to find. I found them a couple of times at Army and Navy on Columbia Street in New Westminster. I went there few weeks ago and they told me that they were going to order them again (didn't go there yet to check though since I am flyfishing now :thumbup: )rpt said:Does anyone know of a lower mainland source of blue colorado blades? I have never been able to find them and don't like painting my own. Thanks.
i'm only looking for about a dozen. i don't use them very often but i want blue because i generally use them to target coho. Thanks.noxcape said:hey rpt i have a freind i could talk to for you to see if hes got any blue colorados how many you looking for
The coloured blades cost the same as the brass and silver ones but without the hassle of painting (which ihave always hated as i'm to messy).young gun said:waste of money, nail polish is where its at, comes in any shade and comes in a gloss so it reflects some light aswell. I like "blood red" and "apple green"
