New Trout Rapier Snowflake Series Single Hook Harness

                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Hot off the work bench! I found some interesting 6mm beads (well, at least to me) called Snowflakes and put them together. There are thirteen colors tied on 2' of 10# Stren Original line with vintage #6 Mustad Limerick hooks and for beginners I used plain or hammered nickle or brass #3 Colorado blades. And, of course, 6mm rondelle spacer beads (also known as 'wedding rings') to somewhat match the colors of the beads. I will also be making these in a two-hook model for Kokanee and a two-hook model with #4 blades configured for Walleye. All that is left now is for the ice to go and the general season to open to start dragging these behind the boat to see if the fish are impressed.
