I needed a few extra "bucks" to get free shipping on a recent outdoors order, so I threw in a few holographic colorado blades. I know the white bead/gold purists won't think much of them, but I really like how they look! Can't wait to try a few of these out. Maybe the extra flash will fool one or two when they have seen all the other spinners...or not, but they look neat!
My best day ever on the Yough river (136 trout and unrecorded number of smallmouth) was made possible by a panther martin with a blade that looked similar to those shown above. I forgot to pack my home made spinners and I always keep a few odds and ends in my pack. It sure worked out for me that day and I'm sure your spinners will do just fine.
Thanks guys...It may be next year until I can try them out on trout...but the bass were absolutely CRUSHING them this afternoon. I stopped counting at 50 and I landed 20 that were probably over 12" and 3 REALLY big ones. I hope the trout like them too!!
