How to Tie a PFD Rusty Spinner

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tier and videographer Tim Flagler offers up the PFD Rusty Spinner as a sure solution to fishing those near-dark hatches when it is so difficult to see your fly. The secret is tying with white craft foam to create the fly’s “PFD.”

“Rusty Spinners can be a tough fly to fish mainly because they’re so hard to see, as they ride low in the water and are generally fished at dark. This particular pattern helps to even the odds.”
