hey all thought I would share this with you all as found this infomation out from a mate, if your fishing on a budget like I am now then here's a great way of making your own feather type lures and I tried them out today worked a treat.

Get some washing line the plastic covered stuff with the nylon type core not the steel one

Image

un-sheath a section of the plastic and leave a section of plastic at one end

Image

then thread onto the hook be careful as its painful if you get hooked I know it happened to me last night making them up lol,

Image

fluff the nylon type part up and there you go home made feather type lures and best of all cost me 2 quid for 30m of line.

Image

I also added a little bit of foil today for fishing and caught about a dozen pollack on the home made lures.

Hope this is of use as not going to buy anymore now as these are really simple to make.

Really good idea mate thanks.

Also at car boots you can find old spoons, cut off the handle, drill both ends and atatch a split link and swivel at one end and a hook at the other and hey presto you have a flounder spoon.

they are great, what did you lash them on with?
i bought 2 meters of ribon for 2 at the weekend, gonna have an atempt at daylights, i am planning to use the off cuts offs from the washing line feathers, or shockleader/heavy line (expensive but colourful).
i supose i could use whatever fly fishermen use, but i expect that aint cheep either.

They aren't lashed, I just striped a little of the washing line and pushed the hook (eye first) through. Then I just added a dab of glue just behind the eye to hopefully keep the outer casing in place, and finshed it will a small piece of plastic straw..
