Spirit Lures

 Spirit Lures . 

 This new kid on the block looks like it has a bright future . I'm happy to be giving feedback to Cameron Neufeld , the developer of this lure .  This is the Looney Spoon , and he is also making a swimmer head for hootchies. 

 These are early days, but so far the Looney Spoon has been out-performing the other favourite lures. 
 The action is from the head first , which I like , and which you might guess from the shape . The paint and finish and hardware are good quality . 

 I don't fish with flashers attached to the fishing line , and this lure is a great choice for having that sporty feel of having a direct connection to the fish with a light lure .  I'm sure it will work well behind a flasher for those who want to do that .

January views from the hill

 That's enough scenery shots for a while . 

 Yes , we did get hit by the snowstorms ,  in two dumps of snow , but lots of people on the coast got it much worse . And , in a few days we are back to the usual rain and wind storms , which aren't so pretty.
