Hi Guys

Prismatic vinyl for wrapping lures/spoons, any thoughts on that.

I have used prismetic tape on my white plugs for years and believe it attracts the fish. I buy cheap stuff and seal it with clear varnish. Try it and let us know if it works for you.

Used to make my stuff fancy..till my mate consistantly outfished me with a piece of metal (right type and plain) and a piece of breadboard with no eyes even. There is a lot more to it than prismatic tape is the point, although it doesn't hurt..maybe it helps?

I have been adding colored reflective tape of various colours to my yellowtail spoons and plugs for years.
I even bought a heat shrink product which covers the spoons and makes them look like sardines.
Besides the fun I had putting them on the spinners, I cant say I have consistently caught more or less than my partner.
What I can say that some days a shiny spoon will perform better than a taped spoon and visa versa.
An experienced yellowtail fisherman used to put red insulation tape on the shaft of his trebles and insisted it worked better.
I have used red heat shrink to do the same with inconclusive results
I dont have much experience with plugs, but would imagine flashy tape might be more attractive than plain colours.
If anything, it increases the variety you can offer to attract the fish.
Will try post some pics
