The cool part is he also sells the cutouts for tying your own spoons.

The directions aren't on the website yet but I emailed him and I was sent the following:
Using pliers put a slight bend (10 degrees) in a size 2 hook right before the bend of the hook. (You want a curved hook shank the shape of a spoon, and not flat on top)
Take a spoon cutout and place it on the hook to get a good measure of where to tie in some tailing material. I use a few strands of Krystal flash, but many materials will work.
Tie in the back tab of the spoon cutout so that it is pointing reward ( you will be folding it towards the front next step)
Tie in and wrap the hook shank with some flash or flat braid. I use a few strands of Flashabou. Wrap them all the way to the eye of the hook.
Then fold the spoon to the front and tie in the front tab.
Cover the entire spoon with epoxy and place on a drying wheel to cure. I use an epoxy that rod builders use but you could use a UV epoxy if you want to skip the drying wheel.
My wife and I welcomed our second kid on Sunday and I plan to pick up some supplies to tie some of these up once we get through the initial new baby phase.
