Joe's Flies Short Striker Classic Spinners combine the time proven effectiveness of hand tied flies with the irresistible flash of a premium spinner blades. Short Striker Classic Spinners feature a bonus stinger treble hook at the rear which increases hook ups for fish that "strike short."
We carry the Joe's Flies Short Striker Classic Spinners with size 8 or size 10 hooks. Size 8 is the most popular size and is the ideal choice for most fishing conditions. These lures are perfect when fished with 4 to 6 pound test line for Brook, Rainbow, and Brown Trout. Size 10 is approximately 30% smaller in physical size than the size 8 spinners. These lures are great when used with 2 to 4 pound test line and are well suited for use in smaller streams where the water is clear and more delicate presentations are desired.
Short Striker Classic Spinners are available in the five colors shown in the table below.
I have used these flies now for the last two weeks at a community fishery. On a twenty minute lunchbreak I caught six rainbows and everycast I made produced at least a hit. everyone else at the lake was using either powerbait or other lures and no one else was seen pulling in a fish
Joes flies are my go to lures when they just aren't bitten. I might not catch the lunkers, but I'll catch fish. They're great for the kids to use. Whenever I am teaching, showing or introducing a child to the sport of fishing I always pack my Joes Flies. They've never let me down.
