Tying the Spring Miller

The Spring Miller


The Spring Miller is an effective cross-over patter from warm to cold water. It takes most all species of fish the "look up". From Blue Gills year around, to Trout in the tail-outs in the evening and Smallmouth most everywhere you find them. I twitch-retrieve on still water and let it swing into the tail-out of a pool on rivers and streams then twitch-retrieve for several feet.
