Kirks Spoon Streamer

Redfish love flash. Simple as that. These are great flies for redfish in very shallow water. These flies have a weed guard that keeps the hook from snagging, and the fluttering movement when stripped attracts feeding Redfish looking for crustaceans. Great fly pattern. Sizes: 2, 6.

Disappointing action,
August 31, 2011

"I bought several of these spoon flies because they looked like they were based on Jon Cave's design. However, the spoon's action was disappointing. I expected it to wobble underwater and not continually break the water surface. Instead it spun on the surface and twisted the leader. I took one apart and found out why. There was no lead wire wrapped around the hook shank the inclusion of which I have read is common practice with this type of spoon fly."

"A OK. BUT--they are bent @ just about a 45 degree angle. Hooked lots of fish but they kept getting off till I straightened the spoon, then worked fine..Presumably the bend puts some spin on the thing but straightening did not at all alter the fish-take."

"Kirks spoon is quite possibly the most deadly fly known to Redfish anglers. The fly spins and creates tons of flash and vibration. You must tie a swivel on your line two feet up from the fly to prevent line twisting. One complaint is the size variation I got when ordering. When I ordered, half were perfect, others were small and scrawny. I dislike the inconsistency."
