MADSEN'S HEX SPINNER
Earl Madsen is no stranger to Michigan and to the Au Sable River. Back in the 1930s he was a guide on the river. He was Michigan's first commercial tyer, as well as a river boat builder. He established several very famous fly patterns for Michigan waters --- most of which are still used on the rivers! Today, I'd like to share with you one of his lesser known patterns, the Madsen Hex Spinner.
