Elmer Hinckley Fishing Tackle: Lures that not only look like baitfish in your tackle box, but act like baitfish in the water. Take advantage of over 135 years of Hinckley experience in attracting fish to your line.
Elmer Hinckley lures are made of ultra-thin spring brass for maximum trolling action. Colors are: Silver, Gold, Copper and Black. For lures with a different color on each side: Silver/Copper and Silver/Gold. They are furnished with a treble hook on the shaped end and a split ring on the other end.
This type of flutter spoon, developed over a century ago, was designed to be rigged with a minimum of terminal tackle. We suggest that you avoid any rigging that diminishes the darting and swimming action of the lure. Excess weight on or near the lure will stop the tumbling, fluttering action of these thin spoons. The use of a GOOD swivel will minimize line twist. Select a trolling speed that will give you the best action for your lure. We also suggest you change your boat's speed and direction to increase the lure's action.
Purchased these spoons for the first time a week ago. I bought the gold finish and added some orange tape to the mid section of the spoon. I sent it out on a Church walleye board and ran it at 2.5 mph in a local NorCal reservoir I guide for trout on. First fish this spoon caught was a 4+ lb. rainbow trout. Needless to say, I'm ordering more sizes and finishes to try now as well. Great spoon although I recommend changing the hook and split rings if you want to land big fish...
