If you are targeting trout and plan to release them, then I do think it's worthwhile. Those treble/barbed hooks can do some damage to a soft mouthed trout.
If you're keeping, then who cares

If you start using shanks with a bend, I think it'll angle the hook off the lure and reduce hookups, but that's just speculation.
I also prefer a straight eye here, for the same reasons as above.

If you have, what type of hook did you switch them with?

Also, have you ever used a lure paint before?
In the past, when I was short on money, I would buy cheap knock off spoons and paint them with paint I got in little jars at Hobby Lobby. Worked fine.

b.reelz You might also check anglers workshop here: http://www.anglersworkshop.com/LureMakingProductsANG

I don't know anything about making lures, but I tie a ton of flies...

I use various types of paint (including finger nail paint) on my streamers and such. For example painting tungsten jig/streamer heads.

Based on my experience paint works fine until you start bouncing the fly/lure on rocks, then inevitably it'll start chipping off. Typically I will put a coat or 2 of "hard finish" over the (dry) paint before using. I found this gives it a bit more durability. My fav clear finish is Solarez Bone Dry: http://solarez.com/products/fly-tie-...thin-bone-dry/

Making Trout In-Line Spinners

Hello everyone. I am getting into trout fishing here in Colorado. I have recently found out that you can make your own in-line spinners. The only problem that I have found is that I cannot find Red colored bodies. I found that the trout in the lake that I usually fish at hit Red colored spinners (specifically red w/ gold flakes on the body and blade). Does anyone know of a website/store that sells red colored bodies?

Also, has anyone tried using "lure paint" before? Is it affective? Does it last long enough on the lure? Thanks for all the help everyone!
