Re: trout on spinning gear
With ultralight spin tackle, you can assemble a fishable nymphing rig. Using one of those bobbers that you can partially fill with water gives you some weight to cast and becomes your strike indicator. From there you assemble a typical nymph rig with shot above a tippet knot and 10-14" to the first nymph.
Line control is tricky.
On top of all the good stuff already mentioned by others, I have had success with Rooster Tails and silver/blue Kastmasters. Those little suspending broken back Rapala minnows can be good too (stillwater).
