Excellent! They look perfect. Happy fishing with them mate.

The best part about making your own lures is that if they don't work you can always go back and get them to evolve. And when they do work it is like heaven.

That's some handiwork Mobeen.
The thrill in catching a fish on home made spinner/lure is something great.
Keep up the good work.

Good kit Mobeen and some nice spinners.

I would experiment with the kit and design some innovative spinners. Like a two blade etc.

Some color full feathers on the treble will enhance your strike chances.

Regards,

Ali. :P

Thanks all, I really need this kind of appreciation.
The next level is dressed spinners and some colorful blades. We are planning few trips for trout, most probably in May-june. The real test is yet to come.

Thanks All :-)

Greate Kit Mobeen :P , im also working on making these kinds of hooks, not only spinners but fly hooks too(i got an ebook titled "Fly Tying Bible"), converting my simple 7feet bamboo cane into a guide fitted rod and struggling to find information on how to make fly reel from scratch.

Dear Arish,
Great to here about innovative work ur doing,
One of my friend once build a fly rod from medium action 9 feet spinning rod, he replace the guides with home made snake guides and changed the position of reel seat.
However the fly reel is really a challenge, may be it would be more expensive then buying from shop, (don’t know), but your own built reel will defiantly satisfy more ur fishing instinct.

As for flies, I think the tools and other fly tying material should be available in India as I heard that India is supplying fly tying kits and material to many international companies. by-the-way the fly tying vise i got from cabelas is also made in India.

Regards

Hi Mobeen,

Nice to know that you and your friend are making home made kits which hold special place than buying the ready made kits from market. Can you show me the pics of your friends snake guided rod. And how did he made the guides, I too made the snake guides but it is always making an irregular shape. Help needed on making the smooth curve formation. Also needs some lights on step by step process of making reel seat.

Making the fly reel is a big challenge indeed. Money is not the matter when it come to making stuffs from scratch for me. In Hyderabad I cannot find fly reel from fishing material shops so I made a plan to make the reel from scratch. :P

And for fly tying kits I do not have any contacts where to get them in India. Im tying them from whatever material I possesses in home.

Than for sharing your view :P

Regard
Arish

Well Arish!!
I wasn’t involved in the guide making process but what he told me was that;
it was a steel wire, i don’t know which grade but it can bend with heavy pressure with pliers. Roll ur wire around a metal pipe ranging in diameter from .75 cm to 0.5cm. The purpose of the pipe is to avoid irregular turns.
(I will try to get the pic).

For the rod it’s simple. It was an EVA grip, remove foam with blade and place the reel seat at your desire place on rod , then get EVA foam from refrigerator maintenance shop (it is used in insulation) and apply some glue to fix it on rod. (First the front grip, then seat and then rear grip).. that’s it :idea:
..
The basic issue with rod is, it must cast a fly line between 4-5 wt (which is normally a requirement for trout), that why the best option is to buy blanks, guides, rod handle kit, some glue and paints and make ur own customize rod (which is really very expensive and u wont going to get extraordinary finish)
..
Fly reel!! to me its impossible, too much technicalities are involved.

Very nice stuff you have crafted there.

I saw some interesting hybrids (fly meets spinner) being used by some American fly fishermen on the Ganga. Basically instead of a bushy fox tail they had ties on long streamers on extremely small spinners. Give that a try and see!

Common Mobeen I'm sure youve caught something with the spinners.

Show us some pics of some fish!.... If they please the lot on the forum you might just get some orders too!!! Jokes apart did you catch any fish with them yet?

Regards,

Omesh

Thanks all,
Making your own spinners is realy a fun and it is cost effective too if ur a lure angler specialy for trout.

Mahaseerken, i will defiantly try soft plastic minnows and streamers too. I got few spin flies from joe's they have a spinners a very light brass bead and a fly tied on a hook, they are great

I got the equipment (Blades, body weights, bearing weights, clevis, wires) from an online shop of USA, It is not actually a kit, i bought all stuff individually and formed my own kit.

If u guys are interested in making ur own spinners then you may get some stuff locally (as we are living in the most creative part of world) :-)

Blades: The only stuff that is difficult to produce locally in less cost.

Weights: I managed to prepared my own brass weights from a local workshop, they are exactly like mepps#1 and worden's 1/8oz, they cost me around US$ 0.20/piece, where as its cost in USA excluding freight + taxes is around US$ 0.50/piece.
You can also go for a molds for lead weights, here the workshop made me a mold in just $15 where as its price on the online shop is $40-50 :D

Beads: they are available in abundance in metal, glass, plastic and stones (btw im also using aqeeq beads too, they look great)

Wires: Steel wires are also locally available.

Clevis: The workshop here also offered me to make stirrup clevis , but they are cheaper in USA where u can get 500 in $6, so may be u guyz will get them in India too.


Now someone has to start crafting spinners :D

Thanks all for the encouragement and appreciation. We are going to a mega trout fishing trip for 8 days, starting from 2nd July, lets c

I want to share few things that might help someone.

What we discovered is, making spinners is not just buying material and assembling.

Technically there are few areas
1. Finalize right body wrt blade type. Test it in the same type of water currents where you are going to fish. Some blades are only meant for fast currents whereas some works in all situations. (Google it)
2. Choosing right blade size, blade color/pattern for the fish you are focusing (Google it)
3. Coloring, you have to research which type of paints are available, and how to use them, Car paints are best, some nail polish also works.
4. Other than Blades and clevis every thing is either available or can be produced in workshops.
5. You will defiantly injured your fingers lots of time.


Regards
