What is even more beautiful is the brass impregnated polyester shirt I was wearing when I took an angle grinder to the blanks.

I was sooo focused on contouring the brass slugs I didn't notice the hot shards melting deep into my clothing.

After 3 washings it still glitters...........

If Disco makes a comeback I'll be ready for the dance floor!:yay:

At 1/10 oz I wonder if the large body segment is made from wood or perhaps actual bone.

Ack, those are unique spinners! That blade at the tail though, wouldnt that cause a lot of line twist? No barrel, no clevis...

Maybe those bones have that animalish scent from wherever it was carved from to attract... :cool:

Just curious guys, how big are yer spoons? I got carried away and didn't read the whole thread and put together some 1/4 oz spoons. Pretty big fer trout spoons. If thas ok, Ill send 'em out. If not, no worries, Ill throw together some 1/8 oz'ers. What say the organizer?

1/4 oz to 1/3 oz was the basic prerequisite for weight. I believe the ones I fab were right @ 1/3 oz.

The ones I used are 1/4oz and I think one could swing those for steelhead and trout by replacing the hooks. For Summer spoon swap, I'll get some micro bodies to use with tiny sickle hooks (I found some 6,8,10 Matzuo sickles). They are deadly...

Thank you guys!
I've received all my spoons and after seeing what Dicrofisher and FishFinger had done with theirs, I have to admit, I'm a little ashamed of the ones I shared.
Dicro> That's one of the most attractive spoons I've ever come across and will be handled with ultimate care. Do you have a website for your art?

Now that I do glass on my own, website is in the near future. I was under a non-compete clause for 16 yrs. I do have pictures on my MySpace page. A fellow member just asked me if my lures are balanced and I feel like a moron. Does anyone have any advice on this aspect for me? I guess it will have to do with where the depression in the spoon is and how it "swims". I love this lure swap thing cause it is giving us a chance to hewn our skills! And thank you for the lures as well. Oh fishfinger, what do you call that little blade at the rear of your spoons, that was cool.

you can just put a barrel swivel and say "it's meant to spin." :D

I was out of town for the weekend so I haven't been able to get the DichroSpoon wet yet and confirm the action. I'll try to tomorrow and give you some feedback.

The little blade is a #1 colorado, some blades I have for spinner baits.

Just a little something, something to give it a bit more flash. Brass polished up can be really flashy
