Rusty Spinner (Hi-visibility)

In this tutorial, I go over the final stage of the mayfly, which is called the "spinner." Many of the natural mayflies turn a rusty color during this stage, hence a great pattern to have in your box is the rusty spinner. This is a great pattern, though I wanted to improve it by making a highly realistic body (out of goose biots) and a hi-visibility spot (foam). Feel free to share the types of materials you use for wings; there are many out there and it's great to share with one another.

Featured in this tutorial are the D102BL dry fly hooks by Allen Fly Fishing; this is one of my favorite dry fly hooks and I recommend this and other patterns on it. You can find the hook at the following link:
