The Best Trout Spinners

Essential Spinners for Today’s Trout Angler

By Terry Otto

The headwaters of the Henry’s Fork begin at the edge of the continental divide in Idaho – ultimately flowing to the Pacific.  Just 10 miles across the continental divide are the headwaters of the Missouri – the Red Rock and Madison rivers – that flow to the Gulf of Mexico.
