Hybrid hair spinnerbaits, thoughts

Recommended Posts

Made two hybrid hair spinnerbaits. (targeting river smallies) 1st one is hula style featuring the hair more. Should the skirt be more strands. I cant decide how i feel about it. I almost palmered in marabou instead of the chenille. Idea is to have flow and pulsation underneath the skirt. 

i also tied a full spinnerbait with zonker trailer. Kinda feel like the zonkers could have been longer. But it looks good.

They look great to me. I'd buy them! Maybe add more silicone strands, it does look a little bare. But I have no idea how that would affect the action of the hair underneath. 

Just took it out. Granted water was stained so couldnt get a great look, but i felt the skirt was just right, i could see the hair undulating underneath. Also the top is clear hologram so that helped.

 

that is the other one i tied. Zonkers need to be longer. Ended up cutting the skirt all the way up to the hook bend.

I’m sure they’ll work. I think you did a great job. Heck, they already caught us Anglers here and you didn’t even make a cast yet, lol.
 

I was planning to do something similar to my spinnerbaits when the current skirts need to be replaced.

It will definitely work. I have been using Nate's Custom Baits for almost a year now. Certainly something the fish haven't seen a lot of.

Do you put a trailer on that?

looks good for clear water largies as well.

This materials will pulsate but not at spinnerbait speeds.  The beauty of fly tying materials is the action when not moving as much.  I tie a lot of flies with marabou, rabbit, synthetic hairs etc...and the pulsing action you can get but it isn't as good at high speeds.

Maybe not pulsing so much as having a flow to the material that you dont get with silicone. I think atleast from my perspective its a bit of a package deal. The silicone provides bulk and body while hair/ feathers give the bait a natural/ subtle flow that makes it appear more alive.

Rabbit strips absolutely will pulsate at spinnerbait speeds.  That's why I like using them, they impart a nice "wavy" action on a straight retrieve.  Cool concept but I am not convinced that it will be an improvement on a standard spinnerbait.

I agree, im not really sure if there will be an advantage, especially at normal speeds. Where i really could see it shining is for slow-rolling compact baits for finicky/ cold water fish.
