This is the name given to the fishing technique which, by means of a rod and reel, consists in casting an artificial lure and picking it up by imitating the movements of a small fish that might find swimming difficult. This "difficulty" is managed by performing slight pulls or jigs of the rod while winding up the artificial lure.

Spinning may be practiced from the shore or on board a craft. Most fish in our country may be caught with the use of artificial lures, but if the correct technique is used, spinning never fails for hunting species, such as the dorado, the wolf fish and the trout, which are usually caught with the use of this modality.

The lures to be used may act on the surface of the water, or at various depths. These variants exist because the fish move at different depths, depending on the environments where fishing takes place, the existing weather conditions and the characteristics of the various species.

The difference between a spoon and a lure consists in that the former, for its spinning action, irritates the attacking fish, not because it believes that it is food, but because this artificial device bothers them and makes them feel tense.

We should not forget that fish are "territorial" and that they defend their habitat from every strange invader. The lures, instead, tend to imitate small young fish that are part of the diet of these fish.

 

Equipment

 

Ultra light: It consists of a graphite or glass fiber rod, measuring from 1.8 to 2 meters of length, suitable for casting up to 12 grams , and a front drag reel with a capacity of 100 meters of 0.18 to 0.20 mm nylon. This gear is ideal for fishing small rivers and creeks. The artificial lures for this modality are small Nº 00 and 1 spinners, jigs of up to 12 grams and small single and hard body lures ranging between 3 and 8 centimeters .

Light: The rod used is made of graphite or glass fiber, measures 1.8 to 2.2 meters of length and is suitable for casting up to 20 grams . The reel is front drag with a capacity of 100 meters of 0.22 to 0.25 mm of nylon. This kind of equipment enables anglers to fish almost every fishing environment in the country, except those with extreme conditions. The average of fish caught ranges between 500grs to 3 kilos. The most used lures are Nº 1 and 3 spinners, jigs between 10 and 25grs. and hard and soft body lures between 5 and 12 cm .

Mid: A graphite rod between 2 and 2.5 meters , suitable for casting up to 35 grs and a front drag reel, with a capacity of 150 m of 0.25 to 0.30 mm nylon are used. This gear is only useful for fishing in extreme conditions. It is ideal to use compact and aerodynamic lures, a nylon as thin as possible, Toby and Coster spinners ranging between 20 and 35 grs.
