Fast Current Deep Water French Spinners

Here is a series of French Spinners that have evolved for fishing fast current and deeper water situations. A word of warning before using these spinners is that they cast like bullets and sink like rocks. They do however, catch a lot more fish in special situations. Situations like when the fish have moved deeper than you can normally get with an average weighted spinner or when the current is just too strong for achieving anything more than surface skipping with your average weighted spinners.

The entire body is made of solid brass beads to maximize weight.

When making the Heavier French spinners you should use an open loop wire shaft. If you decide to use larger diameter wire you may have to drill the holes on the first few beads larger to fit the wire shaft. Use a 1/16" or 1/20" drill bit.
