Homemade Copper spoons for Pike

I had a spare piece of copper pipe so I thought I'd put it yo good use and make a few pike lures from it.



Cut the pipe to the required size, for me this is usually between 3 and 4 inches.



Cut it along it's length



Open it out with pliers and hammer it flat



Draw the shape of the spoon on the copper sheet then cut it out and file the edges to get a smooth finish.



Using a ball peen hammer gently tap a concave surface into the spoon, I like the hammered finish it leaves as this adds more flash in the water.
Drill the holes, fit split rings and hooks and you're good to go, a great pike lure for just a few pennies.
