Fly fishing for beginners can be difficult at first, thus be sure to stick with it and ask others for advice. If in the need for some helpful tips and other fly tying and fly fishing information, be sure to check out my "Trout and Feather" accounts on Facebook and Instagram...

Sulfur spinner patterns...

The problem with traditional spinner patterns like this one is that they are not very buoyant. The tendency to sink rather than float is exacerbated when fishing in low light or in the dark. I have spent endless hours fishing this type of pattern in the dark and have learned this the hard way. The good news is that it is not uncommon for trout to feed on submerged spinners. Not very impressed with the "glowing" UV feature.
