His Spinners are better than anything else on the market . He also donates a lot of spinners to different kid programs around the country . Thank You 5crows for all you do here and around the country

Thanks for the plug Frank! You're certainly welcome, even though it's like the pot calling the kettle black on promoting fishing to the kids.

Whenever I send you some spinners, I see pictures of a kid with a big fish in return!

I have just come to a point in life that it is more fun watching someone else get exited about catching fish

A couple pictures of the smallest of the small - Fire Fly. 1/30oz for flip drops in small streams with thick brush. Set in a riffle around a rock and watch them show up to grap it. Light tackle, not for casting any distance.

I never heard of these till I joined the site about a week ago, And wow I checked out the website and these things look amazing. You can really see the quality in them.

I'm gonna try and purchase a few different ones here shortly, And make a video using them and post it up on here showing them off.

Here's another new one - call it a U-turn Rock Hopper. For Trout and Steelhead in deep fast channels below a cascade.



It's a prop spinner strung on 15# nylon coated cable. Has a reinforced bend (right angle of .051 inch stainless). A 16 inch drop on the longer side that's weighted with a couple of white quartz bars (1/2oz) that will slide and clack as they're drifted in current across rock bottom or trolled. The wieght should let the 4inch prop spinner ride low in water column. Cable loop at bottom to add more weight if needed.

Put a split ring attached, weedless Aberdeen in the dressed zonker tail. The weedless loop to keep the weighted cable end from fouling on the hook when cast. Other hook choices available.

River Smallies should take interest too. Blog Design story.

Thanks rem, comment those blog post and you might find some in your mailbox.

Those Dead-ends and U-turns are the kinds of spinners some kid might turn into his favorite.

Speaking of kids and fishing - any opinion on whether the FCS Kids Photo contests are worth dusting off this year?

Nice! and you guys got one in Colorado!

True story, my dad was a WWII vet, bought our house on the GI bill, kind of guy. He kept a trunk up in the attic of memorabilia from the war and his early life. Some of the only pictures he showed me growing up, were from his trunk. I'm remembering the one's of him going to hunt deer in Pennsylvania with some of his army buddies after the war. Never forgot how much it meant to him. He spoke fondly of those guys as friends, even the last time I saw him alive.
