Default Some recent tying!

The Striped Bass season has ended here in MD, so some folks are turning their attention to various panfish species. I spent some time today tying up some flies to be used on perch & Crappies in our tidal rivers & in some of the state owned ponds.

I had recently purchased some of these small inline spinners, something that works well with either a fly rod or ultra light spinning gear.

I had these Aberdeen hooks, which are quite inexpensive, but good hooks for panfish. These are South Bend brand, likely made in Korea, but surprisingly good quality & sharp. This assortment ranges in size from about a 10 up to 1/0. I only used the sizes that looked to be #4's. A good size for panfish and one I use frequently. Unfortunately the pack is not marked for the sizes.

Here's the end result in some favorite color combinations.

Good Call on using a ring-eye Siwash style hook.

Thanks! Actually Fred, they're not Siwash hooks, just cheap Aberdeens. That's a good idea however! I know Gamakatsu makes a good Siwash in small sizes that could also be used. I used these hooks because I'll likely lose several of them & didn't want to get into too much expense.

The eyes are not over sized, but do fit the spinner wire very well. When I use these I'll tie on a tiny swivel & snap to aid in limiting line twist.

Like I posted, these will be for panfish, so I don't know why anyone should get upset. To each their own! The fly & spinner combination is not new & was once very popular with fly rodders, even for trout. I used these quite a bit when I was a kid, or I would thread a spinner & clevise with a few beads on the tippet ahead of the fly, and they do work rather well. This adds some weight, some flash and a bit of vibration, so I don't see it as any different that adding some of the other materials we use.

Ah if only everyone saw it this way! Post some pics of the fish you catch. I figure, as long as someone is fishing legally who cares if they are fishing my way.

Ever since I lost one of Joni's Furled leaders and tried to recover it with scuba gear, I have been giving consideration to using a small spinner blade or something to create vibration in the water. I love the spot this happened because I catch huge Walleye there. However, once I went down in scuba gear I realized that the fish in that water in the best of conditions have about 16 or 18 inches of visibility. Those little spinners you have right there I could just clip on the flies I already have. Where did you find them?

It should be interesting trying to get one of those out of the water with a spey cast huh?

dpreller, I'm going to try. I live in Arnold, but will likely be looking to give some of the Eastern Shore rivers a try, or perhaps some of the ponds over there.

I've fished at most of them in the past. Wye Mills Pond is a short drive as is Tuckahoe State Park. I'll probably also try Transquacking & Chicmacomico Rivers, both near Cambridge, and the Blackwater River. I have a Gheenoe that I'll be using.

Dan, I picked those spinner's up from an Ebay seller. I also saw a similar type on Cabalas website.
