For the third installment of his Facebook Live series “Tying with Tom,” Tom focused on spinners, explaining when and why they’re effective for trout and demonstrating how to tie two versions of Rusty Spinner. For the foreseeable future, we will be doing these events every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 3 p.m. Eastern, so keep an eye on here, as well as on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Here’s the recipe, if you want to tie along:
Hook: 2X-Long dry-fly hook, sizes 12 through 20.
Thread: Yellow, 8/0 or 10/0.
Tail: Stiff blue dun hackle fibers or Coq de Leon fibers.
Body: Fine rust dubbing, natural or Ultra Fine synthetic.
Wing: Gray EP Fiber or light dun hackle fiber.
