Finesse-Fishing.com has replacement single hooks (barbless) that should work for most any small lure.


Thanks for the link and PM!

Question about these little spoons: do you tie directly to them or use a snap? If tying directly, which knot do you prefer to use?

Re: Japan style trout spoons

I'll be trying these come spring and was wondering about the type of barbless hook to use. I decided to buy 4 lots of used spoons but want to ensure I have good hooks on hand in case some of them are pooched. Ideally available online, preferably from a North American shop.
Thanks!

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Fund these pics. They're supposed to be out, but i can't find them on aliexpress. Spools are supposed to be 5.7g without bearing and 6.7g with bearing :shock: https://imgur.com/a/weg0V https://imgur.com/a/5FtEt Did you find those on another forum, or just out floating around on the interwebs?

Re: Broken sv spool

So you do have to drill 2 holes for the tabs on the inductor base, correct? No. I sanded down one of the Ray's bottom footed white part. Then super glued it to the base of the spool. There is a reason why you have to sand it down. Even if there is already teo holes for the bottom footed part to fit...

Re: Duo Realis 120 SP opinions

I love my 120SP's, I throw them more than any other jerkbait. I have experienced the front hook fouling and am going to be looking for a shorter shank hook replacement. Have an of you found a good solution for it...?

If you can find Yo-Zuri Hybrid Ultra Soft in the seize you want, I'd try that as well.

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

Have you thought of looking for a T3 Air? It was my impression that they cast the lightest lures out of Daiwa's Air reels. As someone who owned all of the Daiwa AIR reels, the T3 AIR is overpriced. It's a super nice and refined reel with a blazing fast retrieve. The casting performance increase was...

Re: Tatula Elite (non AGS) vs. Cronos spinning

the svf is much better than the hvf. the ratio of resin to fiber is greater in the hvf than the svf making the cronos slightly heavier and some what less sensitive Do you have them both/have fished them both? yes I have that's why I'm saying the SVF is better. The Tatula Elites are even better than...

Re: Broken sv spool

Do they sell the little white piece? I seen the trap has stock spool for $70. May just order a new one if I can't get the part. Is there a big difference in g1 and normal sv spool. They are same price just didn't know if one was better than other. If you contact Tackle Trap, I'm willing to bet they...
