My son began catching trout in the Park on these things before moving up to fly fishing...they are very effective....he used an ultra light spinning outfit with a split shot about a foot or so above the magnet....the magnets are sold with a weighted jig in the package but we never used this...always strung the magnet on a small hook and let the lure kind of float in the current above the split shot...I would imagine this could be fished with a fly rod like using a green weenie or any type of larger nymph....I imagine an 8 0r 10 sized hook with maybe a bead head up front would be just the thing....these things are plastic so they need some kind of weight to get them down a little.
