A1 decoys spring loaded wings decoy

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

I recently bought one of these to put on my bouncer/floater pole thinking that the wings were attached with springs and just moved in the wind.

 

However when I assembled it I realised that the wings were connected with fishing line through the body of the decoy to a spring. When I pull the spring the wings go up and down.

 

If anyone has one of these and can tell me how to attach the spring to make the wings move on their own when the decoy is on the pole I would appreciate it.

 

many thanks

Hi Geo,

 

This one baffled me so spoke to my director. Hes said if you put fishing line through the decoy to the floor and adjust the tension until it flaps in the wind, it should work nicely.

 

Hope this helps,
