Great Tut Fritz,
 
Cred to you.
 
I use this on all my spoons, but go up to No 6 wire on my heavy "Sardine run" spoons. It might be overkill and slightly more difficult to work, but it gives me the confidence that even if one strand gets chinked it should stay in tact.
Num 6: 24 -26

I doubt very much that you would snap on of the strands when using the thinner wire. The only drawback I have found is that the ring will bend out of shope if a bigger fish gets hold of your spoon. One can overcome this by either putting more turns around with the thinner wire or by using the no.6 wire on the bigger spoons.
It is just much easier to learn this with the thinner wire .

Fritz or anyone.... I am okay doing the ring but the final binding am failing badly - just seem to end up with holes on my fingers - is there a secret to doing it - how long are the little tag ends that you try to put through the eye etc.
 
many thanks.

Bruce, I find that you need to have fairly long tag ends with which to do the wraps at the end. Short tag ends are very difficult to wrap ---> pierced fingers! I keep the tag ends at least 3 inches long...

I actually made a reply for this and lost it between my finger and my phone. Bruce Tony is right keep you tag end long so that it is easier to work with and when you start the wraps keep them as tight as you can. ( binding ). Once you have reached the desired length just clip it of with side cutters and pinch the sharp end down with a small long nose pliers.

Normal split-washers ( used to lock nuts and bolts ) work great... being constructed of spring steel, they won't rust that quickly (rinse off along with your other tackle.)..[size=78%]..when rusted badly, simply replace.Cheap, quick and simple )[/size]

PS : use common sense...ie don' t overstretch the washer and use the appropriate size and thickness/strength.

Sometimes split rings just won't fit, especially when there is no steel ring attached to the lure. That's when we use the home-made wire ring...

If the hole is too small and conditions allow, I simply drill the hole larger, so as to allow the split washer to fit.
