Black is a good colour, but seldom used. I also like the red headed white jobs too.

I was thinking some dark and some really vibrant as the drains back home are well coloured up now so a bit of bright coulour may just catch a big girls eye.

Black belly and silver topsides/flanks.

Silver is universal for most waters IMHO and the black belly creates a nice silhouette from below. That's how I paint most lures.

its a good guide andy. copyed from an other site...

Super Clear: White or clear. Use glitter for color. All colors are visible to 10 feet.
Clear Water: Blue is most visible. White is visible. All colors are slightly visible to 10 feet.
Green Water: Green is most visible.
Stained Water: Orange, green, and chartreuse are most visible. Red is slightly visible.
Muddy Water: Red is most visible.

lure making

Post  doug6364 on Sun Dec 25, 2011 11:53 am

ive made spoon lures in the past. they really are effective. get a table or tea spoon. break the handle off and file down the edge smooth. drill a small hole in either end, fit split rings to both ends, treble on 1, swivel on the other. VOILA ! they work brilliantly and i have caught loads on them in years gone by. i dont lure fish now.

give these a try. they wobble and spin great !! let us all know if you get a good un on them. Very Happy Very Happy

i,m obviously talking about making these for pike fishing.
