The first of five done ...this is all in colour shift paints so changes colour with the  angle of view.

Clear coated and tested ...runs a treat  

Moving on from lifelong cumbrian fantastic spoon thread  I thought it would be a good idea to have a dedicated thread for all things fishing that we make ourselves.  I've just started making some

You had any out for a trial yet Kanny  ? gave to lure a miss this week with the weather been so hot , gave the jacks a week off lol

 Not really other than  testing,  I'm off to the Norfolk broads  in October for a week so they're going to be getting plenty of use by then :thumbs:  yeah its been too hot I did go to the local canal yesterday with the aim of fishing some frogs but it was absolutely solid with weed I had 3 casts and called it a day.

Spot on Sean .So easy yet most lads rather spend a few quid on leads .You ever use flat stones for holding bottom .I use to trim them with a disc cutter when I was mad for the barbel ,4 sided flats .Catching a decent fish instantly took the shine off it for me as it’s all about the hunt .

Think it cost £4 for 2 5 mm drill bits and packet of 20 O- swivels... Make 15/20 before the bits have had it... Be close on £25/30 if buying shop bought leads... Recently started messing around rolling my own baits again after 10 yrs... Works out about £5/6 per kilo, half price on shop bought stuff and having tidy results 👍

Is it simple Epoxy you use or something special for securing the swivels in the stones?
