They're called spinning flies. Light enough to fish with a fly rod, or trolled with a spinning rod, or behind pop gear. I can't help but think they'd be the cat's meow for Crappies, Bluegills or Perch.

I tried them on my fly rod but they twisted the hang out of my tippet. They spin as you strip them in and it really twisted my line. Looked good though.

I used to have the same problem with a Stimulater, then I switched to a heavier tippet and it helped.

Think I would try a spinning rod and reel and use a good swivel?

You may find these swivels to be just the ticket. Not only do they disappear in the water, but the water actually helps to lubricate them. I'm thinking they would help keep your tippet from twisting if you choose to use a fly rod. They are very small for the strength used.

You can also hook them behind a float a few feet to add casting distance. Also works good for tiny flies. Gills slam em.

They are called Spinning Flies. They've been around since the 40's or 50's. Look here.

I have used the spinners for a while for walleye. You can buy just the spinner and I would put it on a nightcrawler rig with a bead and slip knot. Put it about 1-2 ft ahead of the crawler rig. EB

Thank You Sir.

Glad I could help. BTW, I was an enlisted man. Sir, isn't necessary. ;)

I think if I start making them, I can have them for around $1.00 - 1.50 each. And if they work, all the better.

They kind of remind me of a popular bait 25 years ago called a Cutie Pie. Tore some bulls up on Toledo bend one time with them.
