After reading about all the spinner success...i'd like to try my hand at making spinners...Where?? FMS,Joe's,Online stores, Who has a great selection with good prices...And what brand of maker to bend that wire??
Any info from the "experts" and someone who is still learning would be greatly appreciated. :grin:

Locally, B.C. Angling usually has a great supply. They do get low on the popular blades towards the end of springer season.

A good pair of needle nose pliars works just fine.

The best spinner maker out there is made locally. FMS carries them, but hopefully you can find it elsewhere for a better price. It's made by Rainbow Tackle Company, in Portland. It's called "TwisTech".

I tried the needle nose plier way and it drove me nuts. You can't make quick change clevises with needle nose either, so if you're interested in making those yourself as part of making spinners, I'd go with the TwisTech devise. It works awesome.

i get my components at FMS delta park. my super fancy wire bender is a pair of needle nosed pliers. i also do my own blade paint jobs ala spray can. the fish don't seem to mind so much.

Mortac has quality silver blades which reflect at least 20% more light than nickel/chrome blades. Ive been using their stuff for some time and the quality is always good.

Edit: Sorry, don't allow URLS or contact info.
Please do a search on the internet, if interested.

Mor-Tac for spoons, tape and tubing. Fisherman's Shack for blades and beads. Used to get just about everything from Pen-Tac before Jed Davis sold out. I've only bought the gold/silver spoon from them lately - very pricey - but man do they work.

Thanks for all the info people :smile: I ran to FMS right after work to get my "starter" spinner components...Uh...it's really easy to spend money on spinner making stuff :shocked: I went with 4 and 4.5 Colorado blades nickel and brass but could not find a Half&Half anywhere in there but on a pre-made spinner. I'm gonna focus on a lime green theme to start...Hopefully i'll graduate to the "GET BENT" :bowdown: stage of spinner making... Thanks again :wink:

The BC Angling post internet site does not work. Go to their store and they will give you a disc with which you can view all their blades and print an order form, you can mail them for custom orders. Approx 3-4 weeks for custom work. :cheers:
