Default Re: I'm falling in love with my spin rod!

If you're fly fishing waters that you 'just know' should have trout in them, but you're not seeing anything - no follows, no flashes, nothing - then here's a trick.

Take your spinning rod (I know you have one) and cast a small Rapala minnow out there and see what happens. (If you want to be more of a purist, take the hooks off the minnow.)

If you suddenly start seeing fish following the lure, then the problem is not 'no fish'. The problem is that they don't like what you're offering. Try something else.

Of course, the really small lures (Rapala F3, for example) are balsa and light enough to tie onto your fly leader.

Just watch out that the waters are not 'fly fishing only'.
