I've pretty much got the spinners body layout down, just need to dress the hooks and put them on. I would like some opinions on the style I've picked out for the ones with the brass blades, I'm trying to decide on if I should add a large bead or not, will post a picture tomorrow of what I mean. Get some opinions on what looks best.

Mine are done and packed up ready to be packaged with everything else and shipped. So I don't have exact pictures, but they'll look something like these.

Nooooooo! I don't care so much about the lures being lost as I do about the headache you'll have to go through with Canada post and the company you got the lures from

Man I'm gonna need to figure out how to make something because going through this thread there's some sweet stuff people make.   It's really impressive what you guys can do!  Maybe I can learn to make something and join in if you do it again in the future.

To be honest I started making my own jigs and spinner because I felt like I was getting ripped off buying them from a store. It's so cheap and so fun to do it yourself, the best part is it is 100% yours and your design. If it's a bait that works extremely well in a body of water you fish, you won't have to worry too much about someone throwing the same thing and snagging all your bites. Fish don't care if the lure looks perfect, so do whatever you can with the skill set that you have and I'm sure you'll do fine.

A little 1/8oz hair jig with bunny “claws”. If time allows ill throw in a second less complicated jig. Marabou, bucktail or craft fur?

I'm all done 8 inline spinners. I have come to realize that I enjoy making them for fun way more then if I had to do it for retail purposes. I guess I really just don't line deadlines hahaha I'm a procrastinator what can I say

It's a lot of work, way more than I ever realized before getting into it. When I'm making baits for the little local tackle store I usually make 20 of each color. Doing 20 of 8 or 9 different colors is taxing to say the least. Then I take those in and find out a couple other colors got hot and sold out since I'd been in last and have to do 3 more colors, and the cycle repeats itself. I wouldn't ever want to do it for a living.
