SPIN­NERS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TRICKS -

They might not be par­tic­u­larly fash­ion­able, but ig­nore spin­ners at your peril. The flashy, ro­tat­ing blade of a spin­ner can at­tract preda­tory fish from quite a dis­tance, even in murky wa­ter. Go for sil­ver or cop­per blades with a flash of red or green wool on the hooks.

Spin­ners are the Swiss Army knife of the lure world – they can be fished in so many awk­ward spots. In fast wa­ter, such as weir pools, they track well and sink fast.

You can fish them in holes in the weed, or bump them over rocks. Lighter mod­els are great for fish­ing in re­ally shal­low wa­ter ad­ja­cent to reed beds.
