The Hatchling Retro is a 3/8oz tail spinner with a Blackfly Lures take! Designed with the help of Matthew Saieva, they look like a perfect bait fish snack, with a bit of a throwback feel.
Most tail spinners don’t have a hook near the blade, and that is where a lot of fish hit. We arm ours with a treble hook shrink tubed on the back end because you don’t want a fish hitting and getting off. Under the belly is a tandem hook for those aggression strikes from below.
You can use these for ice fishing, or in the open water. When using our tail spinner on the ice you can jig them up and down. The flutter throws off vibrations from the blade, and some flash.
