    I find that yellow with black spots and gold spinner in 1/8 to 1/4 inch spinners quite effective, when sun on running water and in the pools at the edge and under overhanging brush. Works pretty well when cloudy too. Muddy water I like worms or corn. Salmon eggs for some reason are not that productive for me.
    Roostertails tend to twist the line fter the first time. I like, the ah shucks I lost the nme right now. It's a little fatr body tapering to small on end near where you tie the hook. The spinner is not on clevis but on the spinner wire behind th had where you tie th line on. Hole is about one quarter of the way down the spinner. I've used a lot of them.
    Rooster tails produce too . I find that getting them into motion is worrisome and keep them ticking on top of rocks over the holes and pools will get them nailed every time if there.
    Standing in current drifting without weigh, on a number ten hook just about any bait works as do small spinners. Places you would not think there are any fish, where they are hiding under rocks where you cannot see the overhangs.
    Some such hides are not much bigger than the fish.
    Move upstream. Moving downstream, you have already disturbed the fish.
    if any size and not stockers they will look up more for food rather than down.
    Sometimes you can bounce it off their noses but they are sleeping, especially the big ones that fed good last night.
    Single hook spinners in all types are my favorites but are hard to find.
    Most Retailers now rely on the same distributor who services the display and the reason for the high prices and seeming the same stock.
    I have put off for decades buying lure making tools and vice and supplies, now they cost a lot, unless you get the extra tools to bend your own wires and such.
    Then you can buy a spool of wire. Hooks well just about have to buy them. Bodies must be trade marked and not likely to find duplicates of Rooster Tails or others. I'm still going to give it a try.
    Fly rods work but I haven't used one in 30 years. I caught more Bream and Bass than trout with it.

    On a side note due to pot holes on I-5 near where I live it took me an hour to drive 5 miles. Needless to say I told my boss I couldn't make it in due to traffic ;)

    So I'm at work today and I'm appraising a customers trade in....

    Me: your bumper is a little cracked and falling off, what kind of accident were you in.
    Customer: it's never been in an accident!
    Me: so you did that on purpose?
    Customer: ?!?!?!?!?!?!
    Me: did you file a claim for the hail?
    Customer: there's no hail, a big cat walks on my car.

    This is going to be a long day.....

    Tank- I saw a note in an insurance claim file some time ago-

    "Customer states car was left parked in hot sun, resulting in numerous creases and wrinkles in sheet metal.

    Investigation continuing."

    When the service literature says "do not heat companion flange with torch or hit with a hammer"
    It's almost like they know me....

    I have a friend in Grants Pass, Oregon that runs a generator shop and many of his bigger generators are run by 4, 6, 8 and sometimes 16 cylinder 2 cycle Detroit engines. He really gets them running great. Every time I go to his shop I drool over what I consider art, he rebuilds those machines with great love and one of these days I'm going to buy one of his low rpm generators to work with my standby solar power backup.
