|Some reason all listing are the larger sizes.|
Life of me can't find the 1 inch size, purchased one from an unknown local, like to have a few more.
End of the season climbing temps, but stock locally in Rock Falls il at local park, do again this fall.
Caught one as they thinned out, can't beat trout fishing.
Any info, tnx!

This is 100% a bug and fly fishing web site. While I would like to help you out but I have never heard of those lures.

this sounds like the original Dardevle red on yellow, 5-of-diamonds spoon- or a knock-off of it, anyway. I used BIG versions for N Pike years ago; maybe try Gander Mtn or Bass Pro, they sell hardware like this?

|Yes it's a dardevel spoon lure 5 of diamonds. All the online are the larger versions. I do have a video youtube under wnppmy a recent upload. Also a late trout shown caught with the spoon. |
No idea where this 1 inch version is.
Tnx for replies.
I'd love to take on fly fishing, was a local fly casting beautifully on a 1st stocked day of our local trout opening day.
Might head to local dealer even walmart see how many trees I snag first attempts. It's a great art to learn.
To check walmart now.

|Walmart didn't have on hand fly fishing rods. |
Online ordered the Tenkara, looked very interesting.
Should arrive in a few days, lots of youtube instructions on it.

You probably want the 1/32nd oz. which are 15/16" long...

|Phillip, if you want some affordable fly-fishing gear, check out Cabelas. I am a budget angler and I use their Three Forks series and love them. Take a look, and they're now on sale for all of $35.00! I should buy a half-dozen for myself...|
P.S. You can imitate that red-and-yellow spoon with a fly called a Mickey Finn!
|No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...|
|Phillipmorr||May 25th, 2016, 7:02 am|
|Likely will order something like that. |
Meanwhile Tenkara is on order, perhaps a simplified way of fly casting for a raw beginner.
See now I have to study all the knots required.
Looking forward to all this.
It's cool this morning heading out to pond.
PS looked up Mickey Finn, yep has same colors, even red, cool!

|Tnx for the fishusa on the 1 inch (15/16) diamonds lure, did just order as looks correct. Wow I had zero luck finding on that smaller size.|
