Michigan Spinner - This Michigan pattern pre-dates 1950 and the originators name has unfortunately been lost to history but was a favorite pattern in fly shops in the 50's, 60's and 70's.  Another pattern designed for the Michigan Hex hatch.

I like the soft hackles!  I have a question, does trimming a stubble of a palmer hackle like the scraggly make it swim differently or trap bubbles?  I am thinking of trying some Carey Specials like that.
