They are still sold over here , but very scarce .
Only know one big German mailorder tackleshop that has them in their annual catalog every issue .

@ laz

Someone has posted these "Bluefox Minnow Spinners" in here before , guess , that it was in the modern spinner and spoon section .

I have one of these , didn't like them too much , since they run quite shallow(in my prefered water one needs to fish deeper most likely).

Also got one , which is weighted with a fish head-like lead weight in front and a weighted hook rigged , also made by "Rapala/Blue Fox" .

This one runs deeper , also casts further , mailordered it from the US couple of years ago , never saw it over here in Germany , I guess .

@ laz

I used to have one of these "Pygmy's" as well , but I think , that I have littered it , since all of its fancy paint job got sticky dissolved and messed up due to having it stored together with some plastic attachement grub tails .

This is one of the reasons , that I grew a certain affinity against plastic lures lol lol lol !

My wife likes fishing weight-forward spinners quite a bit , I have "ordinary" commercial spinners , that I have attached to homemade lead weights , such detachable weights are also available over here , so that you could virtually render any inline spinner into a weight forward !

But the best one in my opinion is the Swedish "Mörrum Spinnaren" , named after a famous Swedish salmon river , the "Mörrum" .

Originally designed for its heavy currents it also fishes the deepest holes and drop-offs in stillwaters .

If I could still find it in my various boxes , I'll post a pic later , when I get back from my Sunday outing .
