Making In-line Spinners

I'm interested in making my own inline spinners but not having any luck finding a supplier of components. Has anyone on here ever done this? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

There's company with a web site called "Joe's Spinners" that has exactly what I want but I have had no luck ordering from them. When I try to check out and pay, it won't take my information for my credit card. Everything works ok til I try to enter my "code" from my card, try that it wipes everything out. Also tried calling them. No luck. "sorry we can not answer at this time - leave your name and number blah blah blah. Yeah, right.
Anyway, if you check out the "wooly bugger", that's exactly what I want to do - real simple, just a blade on a shaft with a fly attached. I got the flies. Where can find shafts and blades?

sorry that should be "joe's flies"

Spirit, I make my own in-line spinners. I use Jann’s Netcraft. They have bodies, beads, blades, clevises, and wire to suit my needs. I bought their Tack-l-tool to form my wires.

Thanks guys for all you inputs. As some of you know, I am a total mechanical imbecile. When I get the materials I am going to need all the help I can get. I've never done anything like trying to build a spinning lure. I saw joe's woolybugger and thought that it looked like it would be a simple thing to remove his fly and replace it with one of my own barbless ones. Then I couldn't order one, so my next thought was hey that looks like it would be pretty simple to make if I had the materials. So here we are. Do I really need something like that tack-l tool to shape the wires? Hope it comes with instructions - look like a manual wringer for an old washing machine.

Here's the basic concept. Any of you ever use one of these? Looks like it could be deadly. I don't know about that purple though.

That looks to big for trout, but I am often wrong. You can make it any size you want. If you get the tool, you will find it is as important as a vice in fly tying. Trying to make spinners without the tool is just frustrating. Making spinners with a good wire twisting tool is fast, professional looking and just plain fun. A purchase worth every penny. By the way, I get a lot of my parts on E-bay as well as Jencraft

Besides what is posted, I go to www.LurepartsOnline.com for Stamina parts. They are a bit more expensive, but quality parts, including actual silver plated spoons. They give off a nice reflection without a fish scarring flash. I find them unbeatable for salmon and steelhead.

Hey Spirit, I use woolybuggers for trout and steelhead quite frequently, both weighted(beadhead) and un-weighted. While I have black, dark & light green, orange, yellow, pale blue and of course, white, as well as some that are more than one color..... purple has always been fairly productive for me. Have never seen a purple leech in real life, but purple "leech flies" (dyed bunny fur) also work well, especially in the river..... don't underestimate purple.

OK Fix. I'll give purple a try. Can't catch any less than what I have been. Could be it'll turn out to be a life changer.

I use woolies all the time too, but I usually drag em behind a casting bubble. I've never tried using one with a inline spinner. You? Whatcha think?
