View Full Version : Lures And Spinners
iv been looking on the net for a site where i can buy cheap lures and spinners online. if anyone no's any sites let me no cheers :-D
One of the best and sucessful spinners you can have in your fishing kit you can make yourself out of and old spoon (cut the handle off)... it spins realy well through water and very reflective :-)
Try this place:
I do a bit of pike fishing and have used Harris angling many times, the best spinner is one of the most simple that I have found the Ondex 5, small enough to keep in your kit, but always use a 12" wire tracer (cos fishing line dont like pike teeth).
only a couple of quid but every time I dunk one in the oggin I get a pike.
I agree with Chopper the Ondex Number 5 is the best spinner you can buy. They come in silver and gold, IMHO silver is the best. Their secert to success is the tuft of of bright red wool on the treble hook. ALWAYS use a wire trace, I make mine at least as long as my arm (Pike will rap themselves up in it). Pike responed to low frequency vibration so reel in as slow as you can. For Perch reel a little faster and vary your speed whatever fish your after, this includes stopping the lure/spinner from time to time.
Pike are to a certain extent ambush predators, so they like to hide themselves away at the edges of reed beds and around structures, so fish to these places. In flowing water fish will sit with their noses into the flow so cast more upstream than down. One last tip, fish at different depths as a general rule most spinners sink about 1 foot per second. Lures are different, it all depends on what "bib" is fitted.
I don't know what the bite for shipping to the UK is, but this is a good resource in the U.S. http://www.cabelas.com/ I'm thinking primarily of spinner and spoon components. Spinners and spoons are quite easy and economical to make if you have the right tools. They also have plug and lure bodies but I haven't made lures from them.
I have used eBay quite a bit to buy flies and lures. Keep your eyes open and everysooften you will see a bargain.
i think I got 50 flies in a presentation box for £12 once :-D
