The title of this essay was Excalibur: The Steelhead
It might have even started then a bit. More on this later.

This Blog is going to be about spin fishing with atificial lures. Mostly jigs, jerkbaits and spinners and definitely in saltwater when I can. Weedless Jerkbaits were introduced to me by an East Coaster named Phill Knoll.
This guy really showed me how to catch Striped Bass. Spinners I fish only when the predominant fish is trout or steelhead. Spinners are new to me - and currently I am deciding that they aren't stupid and do catch trout. I used to think they represented white bait aka a minnow lure - but now am more in agreement with Jed Davis that they are an "attractor". This probably has something to do with triggering aggression strikes.
