DWW, I would be very interested to see the result. Perhaps you could also tell us how you make them. In know an angler who is very successful with spoons. He fishes old designs that he bought 30 years ago. Just plain silver or copper spoons, relatively broad designs that slowly flatter down when he pauses winding them in. Still very effective. Bobby

I agree - spoons like the Kuusamo Professor work very well.

I think this may be what you need DWW. The material is 18swg (0.048")

I recently photographed these for some lads talking about the ABU Toby and similar ABU lures. Some members might be interested in seeing them.
