Bucktail with Spinner

Sure, they work. Don't be afraid to experiment, everything is worth a try . I mix and match freshwater and saltwater stuff all the time, some bomb and some work great , there's only one way to know if something works and nothing works 100% of the time .

I have them in my spring bag right now. I carry 1/2 and 1oz in all white and white and chartreuse. They work just fine tip em with a small twisted tail. Blakemore roadrunners always see em on super deals like a $1.99 and i looad up on the small sizes.

20 years ago, that lure and the success he had with it gave birth to his very hot fly pattern. Google henrycowenflyfishingdotcom. Henry is on this site but I don't hear much from him.

what was the reason for the "horse head" type design ?? What was is supposed to do as opposed the the normal looking type bucktail ??

Again .... Kind of curious to the design of this type of buck tail. Was it created to target any particular type of species ?

lt gives some distance so the blade can rotate freely, without interfering with a possible hookset. If you see the homebuilt ones which don't spin (above) you can see why the horse head design works.
