Tricos are in full swing from late Summer to mid-Fall each morning when the sun hits the water. You’ll find huge swarms of trico spinners dancing in figure-eights above the water. As the swarm of spinners descends onto the water trout will immediately take advantage of the easy meals. Use this trico spinner with just a bit of extra flash within the poly wings to cast directly in front of rising trout.
- Pair these tiny trico flies with a more visible fly like the elk hair caddis for a 2-dry fly rig.
- If regulations allow, use a multi 3-dry fly rig to increase your chances in this order…Elk Hair Caddis…Trico Spinner…Trico Spinner.
- Make soft casts that drift slowly onto the surface.
- Cast a few feet in front of the rising trout.
- Present the fly first. Avoid casting overtop of the trout.
