It is pointed out in many manuals that the Blue Fox Nature Deep Spinners with grasshopper (cricket) like bodies are effective in the summer season, when grasshoppers appear in the coastal meadows and part of them falls in the water. On the other hand, many anglers know that these spinners can be used to catch perch (Perca fluviatilis, in Eurasia, and Perca flavescens, in Northern America), but both these species never eat grasshoppers and any other terrestrial insects.

To check this discrepancy, we have tested the foregoing spinners in the field conditions.

Blue Fox Nature Deep Spinners were tested in the summer season, during June, July and August, in Dniepro and Desna rivers, Ukraine. Lures were tested during our fishing trips from Kyiv to Chernihiv. Lures of one and the same model, 4 gr. BFNS of HGO color, were used. River localities with the rich coastal meadows were chiefly selected. 30-40 lure presentations were made in the morning and in the evening until darkness. In total, 1800 lure presentations were made by two experimentators and 167 fish of the different species were landed (see Table 1).

These data show that the grasshopper like bodies of the Blue Fox Nature Deep Spinners are indifferent for fish.

These lures allow to catch fish that are most abundant in the given river localities, asp among predatory cyprinid species and perch among other species in our case. In contrast to cyprinid fish, perch (as well as zander and pike) willingly eat aquatic forms of insects (such, for example, as larvae of dragonflies and damselflies), but they ignore their aerial forms and terrestrial insects.

According to our observations (in the middle part of Dniepro river, Ukraine), large grasshoppers like Tettigonia viridissima, with body length ... Read more »
