@ FLASH
Great to hear that your new homemadies do have an appeal on fish , ...congrats thumbsupsmilie !

But won't you consider about using thicker wire in future(provided blanks are sufficiently buoyant) , .........to me it would really suck having to re-tune my lures constantly .

Thanks dieter. Yes the thicker wire is an option .All of my coloured versions have .9 mm stainless, however I am trying to achieve a very clean and neat finish on my nudies hense the fine wire . These lures are for trout so a bit of finess comes into play aswell .

Yeah , ...I see , ....guess , one's gotta make compromises .

Years ago I've done a couple of dozens small jigging spoons (pirks) of lead with 0,5mm stainless dental wire , ...thicker one was impossible to use , as the casting mold's cavity was very small and thin on the ends(homemade silicone mold with the indent of a life small minnow) .

One day the missus snagged up sucha lure and on attempt to pull it free the bottom hook wire eye tore open , ........further examination showed , that the wire had become thinner and thinner during countless fishing sessions , .......it was simple abrasion due to constantly having knocked the pirk on rocky , concrete , or mussel-covered bottoms whilst jigging it vertically below the boat .

Such won't happen to a cast-and-retrieve kinda lure , anyway , ........but since I always do examine these jiggers before use , in particular the ones that have been in use for a long time , ......would be an absolute disaster to loose a good fish because of such failure .

Thanks tincan . All with a spray pack too. Hope one day soon ill try a air brush . Just the cost of changing over to that type of paint might pull me up .

Flash I use rattle cans and decant them into the airbrush. Just knock the spray nozzle out (rattle can cap) and replace with a piece of brass tubing, works a treat for me.

Hmmm thanks diemai, maybe people would interpret my last post in a different way, better to add a picture for clarity.

I see , mate , ...this is less dangerous thumbsupsmilie , ...thought that you were suggesting to manipulate on the vertical center tube piece on which the plastic spray know is stuck , ...........this might lead to newly dyed clothes are a little weird tan on the face lol lol !
