Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Pike, NorthernIf I could have just one fishing lure in my tackle box, it would be the Mepps Aglia dressed #5 Silver/Brown. B5ST S-BR
Lure: Thunder Bug
Fish Caught: Grayling - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brown - Trout, Sea/SpeckledI have used the Thunder Bug spinner in several colors and sizes. The Blue Tail Fly/silver color is perfect for sea trout. If the fish are there, they take it. Also, the regular brown trout are glad to see one of these spinners. Either brown or yellow in March. I have caught 15-20 brown trout within a couple of hours fishing. A little trick to stop the spinner from twisting the line is to bend the eye 30-45 degrees. Be careful not to bend the shaft below the twisting, or you will end up with a spinner that doesn't work at all. Bending the eye down a little not only stop the lure from twisting the line, but also makes it go in the water in a S formation. The fly lies straight out behind the lure, the eye follows the line, and the body lies in a 30-45 degree angle. Some times the lure will even fish much better after performing this little trick. Some Dragon Fly nymphs have this position when swimming in the open water, or when they are ready to strike a pray.
