I'll definitely be making a trip to Goodwill this weekend and giving this a try! I just started Steelhead fishing here in Oregon, and as Penelope said, spoon fishing can become an expensive hobby in a hurry. Plus, there's something really gratifying about catching a fish on a handcrafted lure. Thanks Eldon.

I love the spoon lures! The work just like store bought ones but a lot cheaper.:) I'd post a pic but it's not working right now.:( love the instructable though.:)

Remember that most spoon handles can be made into small lures, too! Paint as as little sardine or something.

Ranie-K we used to make them out of the handles too, and used reflective tape, caught a pickerel using it... good stuff

Good tip - I'll have to give that a try sometime. I never thought of using the handle.

Very nice! Lures get so expensive, it's nice to be able to make some of your own :) You should enter this into the Holiday Gifts Contest!
