I know there was a thread for this at some point, but the search function is super slow and not finding it right now, soooo....

Brass Body PMs are 25% off thru the end of January. These are my personal favorites, and are among the few PMs that come in size 15 (1/2 oz). If this link doesn't work, just search for their facebook page, or sign up for their email list to get the link.

Nice, I love that those in 15 too. They can be reeled very slowly compared to others. A bit pricey. Hahahaha! R

Just got my restock for this winter.

For those windy days and for days when nothing else works.

All #6s, gold, silver, black w/yellow spots, yellow /red spots.
4 each.

These are the ones I caught fish with last year.

Nick is right there Stan, size up to 9s and 15s. Around March/April, trout 3" to 30" will nail the 15s. R

Don't know how to quote both, but advice taken.
I will order a couple of goods in those sides


That is surprising as they are pretty big.

I try to use the fly rod, but sometimes the spinning set up works better.
Wind and cover too challenging for my limited skill sets.

I have caught steelhead on the black w/yellow dots 3/8 oz.

Thanks!

I've had trout hit spinners where the blade size was almost as large as their body...when it's super clear, you gotta size down, but once summer arrives, they'll crush em.

For steelhead, I use 3/8ths in spring if it's still cold, 1/2 (or larger!) in fall

Sale? SALE!?!

Did someone say sale?

Been waiting for the holographics to go on sale as last year's supply was dangerously low.

Was like Troutmas today when these arrived.

Oh yeah and if you're stripping the paint from some spinner blades, a Solo Cup may not be the best thing to use as a tub for the paint stripper...

Might be okay though... hard to say for sure.
