All set for 2018

Some of my spinners I am going to give a go at some point this year when I am not throwing "the usual"...or if Frank has already been through the water!

Thoughts....

Very nice looking spinners!

My opinion is that if someone has already fished through a section with spinners recently, trying a spinner, regardless of the color will likely not produce much action, at least for wild trout.

While other people are looking at the beauty of your spinners I'm marveling at the quality of your photographs. I wish my camera took photos like that. Wow!

I agree with Trout Traveler. If someone has recently fished through the area with spinners the action is going to be slow regardless of what spinner you are tossing.

I used to use a silver spinner with the red/white "Dare Devil" blade like in your fourth photo. The trout loved them.

I can be contacted at [email protected].

I spent A LOT of time experimenting with settings and lenses on the camera to get them to look like this! Still not perfect, but getting there.

Last year I fished the Gunpowder and when I reached the end of the stretch I wanted to fish, I had 45 trout. Instead of getting on the trail back to the car, I decided to fish downstream back over the section I had just fished tossing some of these variations. I was able to get another 16. I covered the water on the way upstream, it's a smaller body of water that gets a TON of pressure, so I was pretty pleased with the additional catches. Would they have hit the gold/white one, maybe...probably...but they had already seen it, so who knows.

I made that red/white one specifically because we used to Daredevils on pike in Canada, and I wanted to replicate that in a spinner for pickerel...and trout...and bass.

Spinners are pretty, guess you will find out how they work

What ga wire? What brand hooks? Eagle claw? i dont recognize the hook how the point curves in toward the shank.

The fish certainly should be able to see them.
