Having a blast with Spinners

A few weeks ago I decided to give making my own spinners a shot. I know that chartreuse and black is a go to color for trout so I made an inline spinner in that color scheme. I didn't have any black
brass beads so I used some tungsten beads i use for fly tying. I still have a pile to learn but here are some photos of the fish I have caught in the last few short trips to the stream. I have a bunch of stuff in my cart on ebay to make these guys. Am also looking at getting into making musky spinners.

Having a blast and can't wait to make some more. Catching fish on lures/flies you make yourself is very rewarding.

Here are a few I made. Barbs pinched, these were just right after i made them.

The one with the chartreus and black blade has been the ticket. Im using my fly vise to spin the wire.

It’s a lot less expensive too. Store bought spinners are ridiculously expensive and for the most part, use cheap, thin wire.

There’s some nice trout in your pictures. I saw a creel. Are you keeping trout or C&R?

I saw a catalog ,can't remember which one, that had hollow and also solid brass balls or beads. Which ones do you use? Also what size or thickness of wire.

great looking spinners mike. if you have a Michaels craft store near you ( yeah I know its not a manly place to go ) they sell pliers that are round on the nose part for forming wire loops. I use them for making in-line buzzbaits for bass, and they work good. will probably not be strong enough for the wire you would use to make musky spinners though. lure parts online has heavy ones and is a great source for lure making supplies if you haven't heard of them.

The only one I kept was the stockie rainbow. I don't keep wild browns on that stream. Honestly I have never kept a wild brown, but after seeing them pop up in more of the small brookie streams I may on those streams. This stream doesn't really have a viable native brookie population so I won't keep them. My kids love trout so I do keep hold overs and stockies from time to time. I have a love hate relationship with browns depending on what stream I am fishing.

I have a pair of those pliers in my cart on ebay right now. I think they are like jewlers pliers or something. Ill be playing with them. LOL I did up some bass type Fly/Spinner combos that i think are going to be deadly last night.
