Home Made Flashabou Spinnerbait

Recommended Posts

I was up to my in-laws this weekend and went to the local bait shop and picked up some tackle and near the check were these home made spinnerbaits with flashabou for a skirt. I bought an all blue and purple one with a huge colorado blade for night fishing. I tried it out yesterday at lunch throwing on top of some bridge piling and dragging it over the edge letting ot flutter down and then slow rolling over the bottom because the weeds are so short here. My question is has anyone ever used a spinnerbait with a flashabou skirt and if so was it productive compaired to the silicone/rubber skirts. I like the profile in the water the skirt was alittle more lively them my silicone/rubber skirts.

I tie flies buy the thousands. You wouldnt believe how many spinners/jerkbaits/jigs ive home made that look better then anything on the shelf. Yes, they do catch fish. Its nice being able to have that stuff around already and throw a feather on the back trebble of any lure. I can take a cheap jerkbait and make it a fish catching machine.

Ive actually thought about posting that if anyone was interested I would do custom orders of baits.

Wasnt planning to sell the things, just offer the service for the price of the baits. Im not a retail business. Kinda like a fly swap type thing, or where someone sends you the baits. I dont know, maybe youve never heard of someone doing that. Quite common in the fly fishing world.

Gotcha!

I understand, that explains things fine.

I hope we have a few guys that will

follow-up with some custom work.

Good luck!

Its not a lengthy process really either. The way it works...

You send me the baits, tell me what you want done to them. All you pay me for is materials.

You pay postage both ways and get your baits back. Its custom to also maybe offer the person a bait/fly that you fish for doing the work.

Example, you send me 4 jerkbaits you want feather/flash on. Costs you $4 to ship it both ways. and about 50 cents per bait, if that, more likely a quarter.

Be interested in doing a swap if others are interested too. Dont know if you guys have ever tried this either but you could do something like... 10 people. One person hosts. Each person sends the host 10 of the same baits they like. The person sends each person back ten new baits to try. Gives you the ability to not only see what others are using but do it without forking out a fortune. This would be a good thing for soft plastic baits. Or maybe 5 guys and crankbaits. Just a way of passing on info and getting a wider selection of stuff to use.

Right now im in one on another fishing forum for stonefly patterns. 10 guys all tie their favorite pattern and the same thing goes down.
