    This might belong in the fly tying section but I figured since it's made for steelhead I would post it here.


    I just got bored at the vice and had some plastic bits laying around so I superglue them to a fly put a swivel upfront.

    I think it might work, heading out tomorrow to see!

    That will catch fish. They already have spinner blade add ins for fly tiers. Love the idea. Love the crank bait lips for flies too

    Are you talking about the little pro tube props made out of plastic? What I think might be neat about this is I can bend one the blades more/less than the other to cause erratic movement.

    What size leader are you going to fish that on?

    Looks like a dirty water killer but bendable parts and Spey casting don't mix well.

    I was thinking about using my boat anchor line. It might be too thin though :\

    Interesting. I'm an angler, not a "fly fisherman", so I see the skies as the limit. ;) Or I guess your mind is the limit. ;)

    Seems like it would swing o.k. broadside like a spoon.

    I use a fly very similar to this for Silvers in Alaska and it works great. I have never tried swinging them but I'm sure it will work!

    Nothing new here. The idea, fly has been around for about as long as fly fishing has been around.

    Yeah, I suppose it would.

    Although come to think of it, you could hang it under a bobber, then swing it at the end of the run!

    Just soak it in some shrimp juice overnight.

    Wait... that might cross the line a bit. Well no, as long as you were using a spey rod you're good, right? :p

    If you are using a two handed rod just tie on a real spoon like a Dick Nite and call it good. Why go through all the rigmarole?
