I've been working on perfecting a larger pattern of spoon fly for Redfish. They seem to want to spin on me...obviously undesirable. The style I am concentrating on is epoxy based. I've tried the mylar bodied flies, and they were okay...but too small in my opinion. I caught fish on them, 2-3 pounders, but when I fish with bigger flies I catch bigger fish....go figure.
I am working with a 2/0 hook, which makes the completed fly about 3 inches long with the tail. Any suggestions to fix the spinning? Or should I just use a swivel?
