Does anyone know where you can buy dressed replacement single hooks for Mepps spinners?
I would just use streamer flies, if you are fishing for Trout I would get Trout pattern flies.
You may have to bend the eyelet or it may even work with a down eyelet giving the trailer more action due to the off set.
A baby Rainbow fly pattern would likely be more attractive than just a squirrel tail standard Mepps trailer.
FlyShack.com has a great selection, so does Flathead but Flathead only ties for friends and family I think.
You may have to switch out the split ring with a smaller one to have play in the eyelet of a normal Trout size streamer.
I used to tie flies and jigs when I was young, still have a few left.
I was 12 years old and I bought a Herters Fly rod kit and a Herters Fly tying kit. I wanted to be like Joe Brooks or A.J. McClane at the time.
