Hey Len. I don't go quite that large. Check out the freebies ones on the way. PM sizewise, these at 3/16oz and are larger than a 4 but smaller than a 1/4oz 6. No bare hooks on the ones I sent but that could be done. Personally I have had fletched beat bare 3 to 1. Ron

I'm curious to know why you go smaller - I seem to have better luck with larger over smaller (maybe the fish find it more worth the effort for a larger meal?). I guess I haven't been at it long enough to have a good sample size, but in my experience the best spinner I've found to date is a Vibrax #3 (same weight/size as a #9 PM) - though I agree with the tail - I think it might be similar to the spinner+bugger combo Trapper mentioned in the other thread?
This one in particular is my go-to:

PMs actually size smaller in the blade than what I use. I find 1/4oz with my builds to be too heavy. May be just a preference :) The ones I make use size 3 PM type blades which is about a PM stock 6. 1/8oz is great when there is not much wind. 3/16 seems to me to be just right. However I have seen guys throwing thw 1/2oz PM for trout, never tried. Seems to be a hefty retrieve with ultraight gear in the stream runs and riffes. Pools heavy would be good, maybe. Either way I am getting plenty of bites. 42 days.

Thanks Spinboy16. Watch for the March 7th Early CR season opener vid. Cool

I know I ain't no one special, but I consider spin fishing a special thing to do. ThumpUp

I like Jann's Netcraft a lot better, but there are some things I buy from a couple of different places.

All can be done with a good German round nose plier, but a good wire former makes it faster and easier.

Good luck this season.
