Little Cleo Spoon

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen this little cleo in stores lately in 3/4?  I can’t find this colour anywhere in the GTA.  I had a lady in a kayak run over my line and unclipped my spoon off of my snap swivel.

I haven't seen any for sale but I have the exact spoon in my weapons of mass distraction. It's an antique in my books.  I have a few Cleo's that haven't gotten wet in over 35 years. I must use them again, they cast like rockets.

What size is that pump ?

You could buy any of the colours and just nail polish the green on.

Get out there and start casting those bad boys

3/4.  I thought about that but that’ll be the last resort.  I also even tried looking online for cleo blanks but haven’t had any luck finding anything similar to a cleo

No idea on what is local for you pump, i wonder how much of an affect this covid deal has had on lure mfgs? Some brands may disappear?

Just came home from a trip to CTC in Pickering. They had a number of Cleo's in stock, various sizes and colours. I didn't see your particular lure, but it might be worth a look at a local CTC to you OP.

Thanks.  I called natural sports but they don’t have it in stock even tho it’s says it was available on their website.  They just updated it.

check the ones made by lucky strike...they work well too and they are in 


I haven’t tried them yet but my buddy has caught salmon with their glow spoons before.  I find their glow ain’t the brightest and the 3/4 size feels a little bit light for 3/4

Worst case scenario I’ll be paint my own spoons for next fall

I have always painted hardware my favorite colours. Some lure colours have been discontinued for some reason. Go to Michaels and get almost any colour paint in a small jar or spray can and all sorts of glitter spray on. I like Michael because I can get smaller cans and jars of paint. Then I will seal them in urethane spray on.  A warning, I have taken the 2 plus hour return trip to our closest Michael and found the a can won't spray. I asked a store clerk if they had a piece of something I could try the spray on in the back room and I got a terse Hell No. I go out in the parking lot and try each can on a piece of paper I have in the truck. I brought the bad can in for exchange. Miraculously they have a large piece of cardboard in the warehouse to do exactly as I asked to do.

Best line up around me is Sail, can't say exactly what they had

Although my last buys were the clone spoon from Bass pro - Cabelas Fishermen series

The Cabelas ones certainly worked for me this year on Niagara area Lakers and spring time casting for steelhead. They have that exact color

I really like the wonderbread and metallic colors, Purple-Blue was good

No one has stock. Cabelas here has zero trout hooks. Time for Canada to start making a lot of things. Time to stop relying on other countries .

I saw someone post on FB this morning that they picked up the silver/chartreuse little Cleo at Grimsby Tackle, maybe give them a ring.

That one in the pic is glow chartreuse l and not silver/chartreuse.  I’ll give them a call tomorrow to confirm.
 

thanks
