Record trout (for me)

I caught my biggest brookie and biggest brown on Thursday.

Nice to get out in above-freezing weather...

Yeah, they rock. I always seem to do better with them than other patterns. Of course I use them more and perhaps fish more confidently with them as well...

I've even taken to building them from components and painting yellow/red dots to save money.

a couple weeks ago i busted the hooks on 2 brand new PMs trying to bend the barbs down.. i was pretty p'd off to say the least..

i may try it.. im googling to see other options.. is cabelas #3 or #5 blade equal to PMs #4 blade? or are both smaller/bigger than a #4... plus i'd almost rather be able to buy parts seperately.. to build more custom inlines.. instead of buying this kit then buying different hooks and such.. i may check it out though when i have the extra cash.. PMs are so darn expensive these days....

have you tried Mepps XD's? they have the same blade style as PMs.. just dont have any yellow/red styles.. but im wondering how they match up.. seeing as they are about $1.50 less or so than PMs

Where you find the XD's?

I have the blade size comparison written down. One of them is a perfect size 4, yes.

I found a place in canada where you can get components, but the shipping seemed high. Perhaps we can order together...

Google "Canada Lure Making"

i just figured it out.. without including S&H.. buying in 100pc bulk of each component comes to just under $0.80.. but like you said.. still thats after an investment of around $80
