Trailing

When trout see food or a spinner that interests them, they will often trail it for several yards as they examine, nudge, and determine if this is something they want to bite. If you are fishing in clear water, you can actually watch the trout as it trails your spinner, which is exciting and fun. In fact, you might be fortunate on occasion to have the trout strike very close to your body so you can see all the action up close as it happens, which is why wearing clothing that blends with the environment is so important.

One tip that you might try is to cast your line out and then start the retrieval process as you normally would, reeling in slowly and consistently but as your spinner starts to come in close, speed up the retrieval process. If the trout is trailing, this will bring about a new level of curiosity and excitement to get it to strike right there where you stand.
