Dexter wedge repair


 Share

Recommended Posts

didnt catch any squid last night but did pull in a nice 2nd hand dexter wedge (and about 50m of line) 

Its around 50g - so a decent lure - not a complete blank 🤣

im going to clean it up put new split rings, hooks etc - but heres the questions - 

what do i clean the rust off with? 

should i replace the treble or add assist hooks?

I know they're cheap enough - but its nice to upcycle!

Nice one!

Replace split rings top and bottom. Then either new treble and use as designed, or assist hook at the top and use a bit like a slow jig.

As for rust removal - try rubbing with a bit of brasso, or Y-10 gel.
