Spinner of the Week - 1/5oz Metal Armadillo

This spinner model has been around awhile and holds a place of esteem in my book of memories and folder of fish photo's returned by happy anglers around the world.

The body beads are nickel that's been powder coat painted with transparent powder. This model also has a few fluorescents - Orange, Green, and Yellow.

There's just something that feels right about the 1/5oz weight in your hand - substantial, and fun to cast in larger waters.

That very blue spinner above, caught my son Will a toothy Brown Trout in the Colorado River and left him with some respect for the lure and the species.

In Poland, "Aszychminka" is a spinner no. 1. performed manually man from Warsaw. In our 'Aszychminka "is essential. If you had once chance to take the spinner is in the dark! There are better from Mepps!
