Glow Stick Fishing Spinners

Shopping for christmas presents for the grandkids at Michaels, I came across a fun fusion bead set of glow in the dark pegs. After spending a few days ironing the kids handiwork into christmas presents (the fun fusion part). I took a break to paint some glow-in-the-dark Muskie spinner brass bodies.

It didn't take long for me to put two and two together and come up with a small spinner design incorporating the gkids glow-in-the-dark fun fusion beads. I had to center up the fun fusion tubes on the spinner wire using small 3mm bearing beads, but the result is a unique fun little spinner, that, you guessed it, glows in the dark in four fun colors; pink, orange, glow white, and blue.

They weigh 1/8oz. The glow #2 Indiana has a high gloss nickel finish on its backside.
I used silver heishe bead spacers to increase weight and found I already had a 8mm glow plastic tail bead. Grandkids love em.

I bet Lilly would recognize the Fun Fusions. Here's a tip. Use your digital camera flash to 'heat' them up and glow.
