Johnson The Original Sprite Spoon
I have caught tons of sea trout and reds on this lure. It is an essential part of any saltwater box.

Best spoon on the market!
My son and I fish for trout several times a week at our local state park. When we are not fly fishing we like to use spoons. Up until the last two months we had used spoons made by other companies with mixed results. This spoon is the best we have used without a doubt. It catches more fish on a consistent basis than any other spoon we have used.

Corrosion Problem Fix
I also experienced considerable corrosion and dullness with this product when used in saltwater until I started using "Rust Stains Away" from West Marine. At the end of the day I just spray the spoons down and let them sit for several minutes then rinse them off with water and they're good as new!

Works on Salmon and Steelhead
I use the 3/4 ounce models and find the gold works well fished on the swing when the sun is out and there is at least 2 feet of visibility. The nickel works better when there is 4 or more feet of visibility. I also use the nickel in the estuary and open ocean with good results. I wash the lures with Joy or Dawn dish detergent after use and do not have any corrosion problems. Due to personal preference and in some cases regulations I replace all the trebles with a 2/0 single siwash and replace the split ring with a heavy duty #5 and have not had any hook problems. I just wish they would sell the nickel in a 2 pack like the gold.
