I try my best to not leave home with out my spoons. Some I'll use on Shasta for Spots other will be used down on the Sac river for salmon. Most will be handed out to my buddies to test and see what colors prove to be the best.
I thought I'd post this up and share some of the color patterns I've done. Tell me what you guys think.

Mostly rattle can. Some are powder coated and some with purple and green pearl powder pigment from my worm pouring supplies added to the epoxy.

I used the Gorilla epoxy you get down at Home Depot. Very strong coating..

2 ounce Monkey. I'd love to get my hands on a 3 oz jigging minnow mold. I've looked on do-it's website but I always seem to get pulled away (wife duty) before I can find one.

I am more than willing to fish out of the back of your boat and try some of those spoons just to help you out. After all what are friends for? See you Monday if the creek don't rise and we don't wind up with some unforeseen chores.

Nice! Spoons are very underrated. Super effective way of catching all types of fish.

Keep up the good work. Nothing more gratifying than catching a fish on your own custom built tackle

That gets my blood boiling just thinking about it.

I've been playing with an assist style rigged hook. Once I find a small solid ring that will fit my application I'll start using those in conjunction with the split ring. I'm thinking a 3 or 4 mm would be perfect.

You might try a BLUE & WHITE one if you get a chance.............
Back blue... belly white. ( not front/back ) but then I never tried that .

Consider me another tester for your spoons. Maybe something for some largemouth in Clearwater? Or something for some striper and prospect slew? I'll take either. That's some cool stuff right there.

solid ring would be nice, not much to do to add them before you pour. Also a swivel would be nice. The fish tend to spin a lot when to bring them up, would keep a lot of twist out of your line.

Nice!

I'm re-doing my irons with bait wraps. Looked for where to get rings without having to buy thousands of them. Found this place which is pretty cheap http://theringlord.com
need to go buy flux now.
