Having a little trouble finding wire for spinners without having to go online to purchase is there another type or name for spinner wire that can be purchased from somewhere other than a tackle shop? thanks all
Irishrover said:I know you said "not from a tackle store" but if I remember right isn't Parma close to Boise? Boise has a Cabelas store. I was just there last month looking at all the great stuff. I order my wire from Cabelas and they ship it to my house. (No Cabelas here in Oregon) Might want to check it out and it alway worth the trip to see all the stuff they have.

fishin_fool said:picked up some wire today don't know if its 302 or 304 stainless but got a stick from a local airport... Awesome thanks Trouski for the info... What I did find out was the wire I got was stainless welding rod which should also be available at any welding supply shop... diameter seems right very close to same size holes in bead body's I have... Thanks again all who helped...

osmosis said:the 3-4 ft pieces of straight wire is how mine comes. they ship it in a pvc pipe to keep it straight. Sounds like you got the right stuff.
I have to apologize - you're now going to spend WAY too much money building your own spinners. Its viciously adictive!

The coolest thing of all is when you catch your first fish on your on design...priceless
