Just a few pictures of some of the spinners I made over the last two weeks. My adult ADHD makes it impossible for me to make the same spinner twice, so there are lots of different looks.
I've also been helping a few of my 8th graders make spinners during lunch and study hall (when they have all their work done and as long as their grades are up). Pretty neat to see them get excited about it.
Looks good! What size trebles and blades are you using?
They are size three blades (deep cup, most of them) and sz 8 hooks (barbs pinched...had one jump off the wire former a few years ago and ended up in the ER at 8:00pm on a snowy February night with a spinner in my finger up to the treble! Plus 95% of my fishing is in regulated waters anyway.)
Hmmmm...now that is an idea, child labor to make the spinners....hmmmm. Just Kidding! That's neat to see that you can get some students into it though. Nice job!
The kids made a few and of course I let them keep them, but now they have bought a lot of their own supplies, so I just give them advise and let them use my wire former. Gets them outside and away from the "screens".
