Ive seen guys wear them out with spinners on some days and catch nothing on others.. But I would say spinners, and maybe even small cranks, like the wee craw from rebel, or a 1.5" original rapala im a fan of chrome and black and the baby brown trout...But I must admit, I have never spin fished on the Clinch. So someone elses opinion may help more. You could always tie a 6x leader and use a clear float with a zebra midge..surely that would work....I think..

Well, if he must throw a spinner; then he should throw this guy in the heaviest weight you can buy. Crimp the barbs and cut off one of the hooks. My brother has a tackle box of only these and destroys the Clinch. However; I am slowly converting him to the dark-side of fly fishing only...

Blue Fox Vibrax in GOLD Only - Silver rarely works as well...
