Spinner Production 2015

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.

I really like the look of these blades. I'm quite positive they will catch more fisherman than fish, but IMO they look sharp!

Re: Spinner Production 2015

Looks good! What size trebles and blades are you using?

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!

Re: Spinner Production 2015

Good stuff! I think you are using the good clevis's and heavier gauge wire. (looks like .2 to maybe .3 wire instead of .18)

Kudos for involving the kids.

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.)

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".

Re: Spinner Production 2015

They remind me very much of my favorite spinner, the C.P. Swing. I use it almost exclusively. Obviously your blade and bead combinations are much more flashy.

Hollow brass beads or solid?

Solid, I like the weight of the solids.
