    Re: Besides rusty, what spinners?

    During daylight Trout can see every color in the Spectrum, including ultra violet..This has been proven years ago.

    However during low light conditions into to darkness they cannot..Only gray cone cells work at that point.

    Rusty's in different sizes work great

    The wing is important..

    Besides hackle I use a combo of Hackle and CDC.

    Antron in faster water

    And you might want to try just CDC only.Wing size is important..Many store bought are way to big compared to the naturals

    When there are truckloads of Dorothea (Sulphur) spinners on the WB at dark I use a March brown spinner with a Bead-head sunken spinner is a size 20 tied 3 inches off the back.

    This is typically right at dark into total darkness

    It has To do with how many are on the water.If you say to yourself, shit how are the fish going to eat my fly with all the naturals ---- go sunken and put it right in there face..The bigger fish often eat them under the surface as they sink.

    At dark chop your leader to 6-7 feet tops.More control and easier to handle when you cant see.

    This must be a small bead. Do you use copper or does it matter?

    Yes very small bead, just need a little weight.

    I know someone out west that use's a little lead under the thorax.Use a light amount of hackle so it sinks easier..

    Or you can tie in a little floss and a very small amount of CDC for wing.

    You want it sink but be "flexible" under the water.
