No Joke: Every color works, honest.

Just some days they have a preference for different colors. I have always had good luck with pink, red and orange in the rivers, and every color works in the salt. :wink:

I started making my own spinners about 3 or 4 years ago and it is a copy of the Flash Glo with the chartreuse beads and #4 nickle French blade. It has consistently caught coho everywhere I have fished in SW Washington and usually out fished other spinners (except the Flash Glo of course).

Last year I started fishing Brad's Wiggler's for the first time and caught about a hundred on wiggler's alone and the two hot colors were his #29 which is a custom cherise herring bone and the #08 which is mostly green and they call it the pickle up in Longview. Both colors were hot and consistant and caught silvers September through November.

When I fish eggs I use red eggs. Haven't tried green eggs yet. :grin:

I don't use corkies for silvers.

A buddy of mine just got back from Alaska and the spinner of choice up there was a red body/ silver bladed blue fox. How ever, the hot ticket was a fly pattern called the 'egg sucking leech'. A purple leech pattern with a red nose. It seems that was the BRIGHT fish wanted to hit. FYI.

Well...You didn't mention what type of water you're fishing.

For Warts...my own preference is Flo Red.

Spinners...I like the black bladed #3 or #4 Vibrax...works well with a deep slow retrieve in deep holes...also the black blade/green body Vibrax works well too. We caught alot of Coho at the coast trolling the old "Stand-By" #124 Flash Glo..but beware...the big pig nookies will suck them up too. :shocked:

In the deep pools...cast your spinners out...let them sink for a couple of seconds, then reel slow enough that you see your rod tip "throbbing" with the blade's action.

Have fun, and good luck..

I have always done best with pink/cherise/fuschia flies and orange or green and silver/chrome in gear. But when they are fresh, it doesn't seem to matter much.

Generally (in my experience):

Red for Reds
Pink for Pinks
Silver for Silvers
Gold for Kings
Green for Dogs
But any combination will work for any specie on a given day. :wink:

Fire-tiger (like the Brad's #74) works for me in the bay and lower river. In clear water i like spinners with some kind of prism tape(shows all the colors of the rainbow.)

Last year we knocked the silvers with pink and chrome kwikfish in a 13. Tried it yesterday and those finicky biters wouldn't attack anything. :depressed:

Went on to salmon and got them to bite. I think they just have to be in a biting mood, darnit. Nothing more fun than a twisting, turning silver!
