Read about your Pepsi can and flush handle variants of spoons
Had a brass sheet 2mm and some spare time.
What do you think of these? 9 cm max length.
next set will be 1/2 scale and 1mm brass.
In case they look like hotel key rings-yeah, I've been travelling a hell of a lot this month :(
Sorry, I felt bored and lazy and scanned them -didnt want to search for the camera

Hi Asif,

Though I am not an experienced angler, the last spoon resembling like a fish looks great. If that is made of steel, I think we get the weight to cast as well as the glaze to catch a mahseer through out Assam.

Cheers,
Apoo

Hi Asif,

The spoon on the top right one is the best one (for me) bend it slightly 1/3rd way down from the top (narrow side) as opposed to the behind what is conventionally done. However I do not like the way the holes are drilled, may cause the spoon to go a bit lop sided.

Doing it how I have suggested will cause the spoon to "Flutter" as opposed to "Wag".

Regards,

Bobby

great work Asif,

Experiment with the bends and twists in the spoons. try and get a little water tunnel going in the house and you'll be able to see how they swim.

also try and give the surface some texture, a lateral line or something.

take care mate.

maybe this sat??

use spring washers ss for split rings,use a ballpeen hammmer to beat it and get a dish shaped end,rememeber the more the tools marks,enhances the looks,to check the action go to the swimmming pool with a half mask.

Hi - Can you please post a pic / diagram of how you would attach a spoon to the line - I really have no idea of this.
Thanks
Susheel

Susheel see image below.
At the end opp to the 'hook end' you put in a split ring and swivel and attach to your line.Cast and retrieve. Catch yourself a fish.
Hoary legend has it that this is a very effective bait, can be used for all kind of fish...Personal test-yes they work, can be plain jane brass, one side coated with silver or the LSD spoons can be lucy in the sky with diamonds and coated with vibgyor shades and then some 8)
Try it, am sure you'll be happy.
Hey Apoo, can we have a pic of your spoon set up here?

Whats up!

The top right, bottom left and the second one on the bottom from the left are real good sppons, provided you do minor modifications... caught plenty a mahseer on those...


Cheers,
Dhruv

spoons work well in lakes. Let them sink and control the depth. Then vary the retrieve speed.

HI Guys,

all the best with your new spoons. If you catch some fish on it....thats a start...good going.

If you dont, then dont be dissappointed. A lot of research into making something as simple as a spoon. A lot of physics involved in designing it based on weight, directional movement (left / right) in water acting on it when it is being retreived.
