How To Tie The Trico Spinner: Fly Tying Video

With July and August come the Trico hatches triggering the slow repetitive subtle rises from trout. It may seem as though they are rising to nothing but they can see these tiny insects perfectly. Because of the tiny size this can be a tough fly to fish. Try fishing it behind a small indicator like the Palsa Pinch On or trailing another larger dry like the Goddard Caddis we featured last week.
