Hi Guys,
1.What is the usual material to make spinners-SS wire? size, dia?
2. Can I bend a O shaugnessy hook at the eye- 90 degrees , to make a jig hook without significantly compromising strength?
Plan to use M seal and araldite to make jig head -obviously cant cast lead :?
Want to play around with equipment, if I do land something on a jig, good for me! :shock:
3.What is the experience of this forum with 'bucktails'?
Got a couple of hundred more questions, dont blame me, Blame Rustam for getting me hooked!
Best
Axx

Well, the size of wire you need is 0.029" (0.026", more easily available, is too thin). Making jighead moulds and pouring your own lead is very easy. Check the many sites that tell you how.

Bucktails are a little too stiff and look ragged quickly. What you need is squirrel tail (grey) or silicone skirts. Head cement can be duplicated with nail polish. Better reconsider your hooks.

Regards,
MM

Good suggestions....however, consider the following:

1. Guitar string in India, I imagine, come in sets. You'd have to buy the whole set to get about 1m of "usable" string (the b string, not high e) provided you get the right gauge to begin with.

2. This string has a high nickel content and is quite springy, ie won't wrap easily, so tying a loop would be quite difficult.

3. It rusts like crazy.

4. It is brittle (I have 9 guitars. Trust me.)

Hackle is usually used as embellishment in dressing, not as a skirt.

The best source of lead is from a tire shop where they discard heaps of weights used for balancing wheels. This will melt on your stovetop in an old pan. Don't worry about cleaning it. The lovely thing is that everything, even the steel bits, float to the top and can be skimmed off!!

You can order Malin brand ss wire form either Cabelas or Bass Pro (better).

Regards,

Mm

Inder, a colleague went to his home village abt 30k from noida, and tells me that the yamuna there is clear as gin, not in flood-not too sure whether it was the main river or a tributary-but looks accessible to me.So will probably go there and cast the first cast...
Will keep you guys posted.

Hi Asif,

Here's a pic of my home assembled spinner. It's a size 4 french blade. Note the silicon skirt material around the hook. I have had great luck with this spinner on murrel.
