You can actually fish a spinner under a float . Seen a guy doing this year for winters on the coast. It was a slow morning for fishing, this guy showed up with a center pin reel, float and spinner and he put on a clinic. Rat bastard caught like 6 fish in a hour or less.
that was a fun day to put on a clinic
Lets just keep the great Canadian spinner trick to ourselves.
P.S. It's nice to learn that someone else (at least south of the border) discovered that it actually works.
"During every one of those thousands or more casts, the angler must cling to a silent prayer that is forever a winter’s hope, no matter what the actual fly pattern.”
