Default How is this done?

what is the process for these "secret family recipe hook designs"?

https://kokaneekidfishing.com/store/...&product_id=63

Or these types of things added to the head and shank of hooks?

https://www.fishwithgary.com/kokaneebugs.html

How are these types of things made?

My guess is they use silicone molds. You can get the compound from Amazon. Make a prototype using epoxy, place in compound, wait for it to set up, remove the prototype. I would not use the on the prototype but just the shaped part. Then modify the mold with a knife to accept the hook. Just an idea.

Spin-Glo walleye and kokanee rigs have been around for decades, couldn't you just cut a shallow slot in one of the smallest Lil'Corkies, epoxy it to the hook? They have over 125 color combos last I looked, or you could dab some paint for eyes, or whatever on a one color Lil'Corkie.

you could build up just about anything with UV head cement. Shape a piece of anything (cork, mylar tape?) to fit around the hook, super glue it on if it doesn't have adhesive, dab on your favorite flavor of paint or nail polish (for spots use a sewing pin head), and coat the whole thing with UV setting head cement and hit it with a UV light. Instant gratification with that stuff..sets in 30 seconds.

Take care when using UV light. Extended and or repeated use can cause cataracts. I had to have both eyes operated on due to UV exposure.

UV exposure from sunlight is much more intense than these flashlights, plus you are only exposing the article you are coating, not shining the light in your eyes (may be some reflected UV but that's got to be pretty minimal). They emit light around 365 nm which is in the UV-A spectrum, much less damaging than UV-B. I would guess your cataracts are more than likely due to a lifetime of exposure to sunlight....or if you're a welder, from electric arcs, not from a UV flashlight. Plus, unless a person is going into business and making massive amounts of flies or lures, the exposure is very momentary.

My exposure was due to industrial exposure. I worked for a chip manufacturer when UV erasable chips were just beginning to be produced. They would line them up on the top shelf of the technicians desks with long, exposed, UV lights over them. That lasted for a couple years before someone got wise to the possible problems. The good side effect was the cataract surgery corrected my vision from 20/200+ to 20/30.

Wouldn’t a small colored bead placed between the the 2 hooks be about the same thing? Can’t be bit off and BB size fish brain etc. Is it a dab of quick dry epoxy paint?

Kokanee kid spin & glo lures the object is fastened to the hook, but I believe you're right, the spinner bug lures are beads fastened in front of or between the hooks, so you'd just need to dig through craft store beads until you found what you liked and then doll them up with paint spots

A 3D printer could produce a 2 piece, snap together type design pretty easily.
Super glue to the hook shank.
