Spinner "recipes"

I got a French spinner kit for Christmas to try my hand at building lures. I can't seem to find "recipes" like you can with flies. Any ideas would be appreciated!

Re: Spinner "recipes"

FrankTroutAngler had posted his "recipe" a few years ago. The below is not 'word for word' from his post, but close enough to give you an idea.

Gold French #1 Blade; Gold #1 Clevis; Gold 1/8 Solid Bead; Gold 3/16 Solid Bead; Gold 7/32 Solid Bead; Gold 1/4 Solid Bead; 6mm White Bead; VMC 9650BZ #10 Hook

Re: Spinner "recipes"

Here's a recipe:

Spinner Construction

This example is for making one #1 White Bead Gold spinner (approx. weight: 1/8 oz.).


Cost Per
Supply Item Spinner
1. Single Strand Wire (Diameter .026)
H 548 Foot Coil for $14.15 (makes approximately 2,192 spinners) $0.00646

2. Beads
H 1/8" $55.26 per 1,000 (Solid Polished Brass) $0.05526
H 3/16" $62.99 per 1,000 (Solid Polished Brass) $0.06299
H 7/32" $78.69 per 1,000 (Solid Polished Brass) $0.07869

3. French Spinner Blade
H Size 1 $47.51 per 1,000 (Polished Brass) $0.04751
Note: If bought at Cabela's a size 2 is actually the equivalent of a size 1 Mepps blade.

4. Folded Clevise
C Size 1 $1.99 per 50 (Nickel) $0.03980
Note: A size 1 at Hagen's is a little smaller than a size 1 at Cabela's and a size 2 at
Hagen's is a little bigger than a size 1 at Cabela's. Cabela's doesn't sell brass-colored
clevises.

5. Treble Hook
H Size 10 $98.74 per 1,000 VMC Bronze 9650BZ $0.09874
Cost per spinner (excluding postage and labor): $0.50088

H Hagen's Prices are from the Hagen's 2013/2014 Fishing Components catalog.

Note: The above prices for Hagen's parts include a 10% excise tax where applicable.

Hagen's sells parts in bulk, typically 1,000 pieces. However, they will sell smaller quantities
for a small additional charge of $1.00. For example, if the bulk price is $10.00 per 1,000 and
you wanted to buy 200, the price would be $2.00 plus a $1.00 charge.
