If you have seen them and know how to make them please let me know. Mr. Oldham no longer makes them and I'd really like to try one.

I can make them; but it will be a knock off. I don't have the screw lock mold. I may have a few of Terry's spinners with the screw lock for the trailer. These were bad about the lead head and wire separating. I am sitting here looking at two that I have retired because the lead head is wobbling on the wire at the nose of the bait. I prefer the Stanley Pro Trailer and the screw is not necessary. You want like the price at $15 per bait.

- Got to have a better picture for blade color and glitter than the one posted on the Bass Fishing section to match it up.
- The head, paint, glitter, Blades, and living rubber skirt to match is no problem. Just want the colors to be exact for you. Better picture required.

That's the problem I'm having Mr. Harper, finding one. They were made too long ago, heck I can't even find a skirt that color (I have not scoured every inch of the Internet for the skirt color yet; but I've come close).

I can dye the white skirt material that color. It is living rubber so it will hold it's color. It looks like the head and blades are antique gold/painted high gloss with/green/gold glitter. This is doable.

Can you put that picture up on this thread so we/with help can actually determine the color?

You will get pictures of the finished product and do not have to take it. I throw one very simular called The Elroy's Golden Boy and a Mustard Bladed bait which is posted below Mustad All The Way.

Mr. Harper, I really hate spinnerbaits, but yours look so good. I may have to buy a couple and fish with them. I know they are good to have, but I give up on them pretty quickly. So, if a man wanted to order a couple, but doesn't know where to start, what color/size would you recommend. I know I don't want a big heavy one. I wouldn't throw it.

The first 2 pics are images that I tried to enhance to show the colors better. The last pic is the original from the bass fishing page. I can't tell if the blades are brown with glitter or exactly what color they are. I know the skirt is kinda orange/yellow with a few red strands; but I think we can live without the red or I can hand paint a few of them.

I guess give it a shot and I'll buy a few. Can you make 2 of each in the 3 different blade configurations: 2 in double Colorado, 2 in willow leaf/Colorado, & 2 in double willow. Maybe in 1/2oz.

Total of 6 @ $15 ea? $90 plus shipping??


I would also like some 1/2 oz - 3/4 oz jigs made up in this color as well. Shoot me a price and I'll see how many of them to do, might as well make it worth the trouble.












Here's how it compares to other colors.
