Rusty Spinner Fly Tying Tutorial

Published by Dave Kile [dkile] on 08/09/2021 (200 reads)
One of my favorite flies and has enabled me to catch my trout is the Rusty Spinner. This all-purpose fly imitates several different insects during a few different periods of its adult lifecycle. As a spinner, it naturally mimics the last stage of a fly when laying eggs or dying on the water. I have had some awesome days during a hatch used as a cripple or emerger. They are very useful when you get stumped as to the correct hatch as they are easy pickings for a hungry trout. I always keep a good supply of size #18 through #8 at the ready in exclusively rusty brown dubbing. But, always try your own styles and see what works best for you.
