Flashers vs spin doctors


Recommended Posts

Over the winter I’m getting a selection together, what do you preferred to use and why , I’ve made the trip to Lake Ontario for 4 years now and did pretty good but I know I could do better , I kinda like the salmon candy line  , can switch flies without having to re tie the leaders , what’s you thought.

IMO Spin Drs are very speed forgiving and easy to run effectively.

Agree on the mix, but elaborating...
Mix of size on either Spindoctor or Flasher
Mix of Color of fly
Mix of leader length from flasher back to fly
Mix of speed

Ps: my best combo, white Pearl glow spindoctor with a-Tom-mik mirage fly, 20” +/- an inch,

Appreciate the come backs , didn’t really think about all that, all I’ve ran up to this point was spin doctor and meat Riggs with the big flashers

Not sure what you mean about being able to change out flies on the Salmon Candy flashers.  Tie an overhand knot in fly leader at end and you can pass loop through attachment point on any brand flasher, then pass hooks and fly through that loop after it is through swivel and pull tight.  Easy to reverse that to change out.  Note the second pic is out of sequence and is really 3rd in the steps to attach a fly with an overhand knot to a spin doc.

I just add a heavy duty clip to the back of the Spin Doctors to change out my flies.  I tie a loop in them and then just clip them on.
