Default Spinners

Had to take my girls to Shipwreck Beads after we went to the Cabela's in Lacey last week. They have some cool looking beads at good prices. Found some glass beads and wondered how they would work for spinners. Made a couple this afternoon ad 3-8mm beads, 1-6mm bead, bearing beads, clevis, and #4 blade weigh ~1/4 ounce. I hope the fish think they are as cool as I do.

I've had good luck with all sorts of beads/accessories from craft stores. Good luck!

Back in the day the old spinners were made with glass beads before we had injection molding.
I'm not an expert but I believe you get an different light refraction with the glass that gives the spinner a different look.
Experiment. What the heck?
My biggest worry is that when I'm dead and gone, my wife will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it.
