Are you talking about the 'in-line' spinners, or the bass 'off-set' spinners?  I've seen in line spinners here, but not the offset.

I've considered buying some offset next time I go to the states and trying them out here.  You can work them just under the surface, and their awesome for predator fish....I reckon tailor would love em!

doubt they would know what they are...pretty limited shopping here now mate.

look at Perth shops or Interstate websites. they are around as they are encroaching into the bass/barra scene

if your chasing freshwater species go the jensen insect lure or celta

otherwise try some soft plastics in natural colours as they are cheap but very effective. use jighead weight that allow for casting distance only and fish slow and erratic.

or go live bait

yea i was looking for the offset ones i thought they looked very interesting and that the trout and reddies might like them ive got plenty of celtas and they all work pretty well but still i dont catch many fish on them. I think i need to start fishing where there are fish ( pemberton ) i normally go in the collie river below the wellington dam seen some big trout and reddies but only ever hooked a tiny rainbow right below the wall.
