Master Class Monday: How to Fish a Spinner Fall, Introduction

Spinner falls present anglers with wonderful opportunities to catch rising trout, but these egg-laying events can also offer plenty of challenges. The flies are tiny, the light is usually low, the presentations can be difficult, and so on. The ability to catch several trout during the short duration of a spinner fall is a mark of an accomplished fly fisher. In this great episode of “Master Class Monday,” Dave and Amelia Jensen offer a useful primer on spinner falls–from the biology to the dynamics of the hatch itself.

  1. Cody bear is my 2 year old poodle. He loves to stay outside 24-7 if I would let him. He’s a wild child.

  2. Our golden rescue is named Quincy. We love American history, Boston (Quincy market, John Quincy Adams) and music (Quincy Jones)

  3. OBI
    He was given to us when he was 5mos old because his owner loved him but he was too strong for her and she wanted him to have a good, loving home. When he arrived his papers said Toby and well it just wasn’t resonating with me so …… my geeky side came out and I call him “Obi” (as in Obi Wan Kenobi).

  4. My 3 month red meryl Australian Shepperd puppy’s name corresponds to everyone’s comment when they first see her beauty & sweet friendly personality, “IDI CLAIRE.”

  5. I don’t like the names listed. I like the names I picked for my dogs. Journey. It makes sence for a dog and bravo. Are two of my favs

  6. Well I thought my Newfoundland’s name Lhotse, after the 4th highest and being next to Everest was pretty cool. Big mountain , big dog. Maybe worth a shout out. Lol

  7. Loki is our 1 yr old Doberman
    Our son Carter named him after
    Thor’s brother because he wanted a brother but got a dog instead.
    Loki can run and jump faster than any other dog. He’s a lover and best friend to Carter !
