Got Tricos?

July, August and September mean one thing in the 11-Mile Canyon section of the South Platte River in Colorado.  Trico spinner falls are usually the name of the game mid-mornings on the river.  I usually try to have several patterns in my box for the spinner fall.  One of my favorite patterns over the years has been the 180° Trico Spinner.  I call it my pattern, but I am sure there are others out there just like this.  It has been a solid pattern and when tied on a 2488 hook, it can be tied really small, just like the naturals.  Enjoy.

    1. I was trying to fish it as a nymph, but it wouldn't sink and they kept eating it!
