Hi Alex,

This picture shows the basic fly turner/spinner. This one is a battery operated one. It also comes in an AC model with a cord.

You can make one from a motor for a BBQ rotisserie. Add your own foam wheel and you are good to go. You can make your own clips if you can solder. Or, you can buy them already made.

Thanks Frank, I found the web site for the manufacturer and found the spinner at Cabela's. Its seemed good for the price. If you have any experiance with them, can you tell me if the battery lasts very long.

Hi Alex,

I have not used them but if I was buying one I think I would get one that runs on AC.
