Jim Ambrose Crushing The Smallmouth

"Back in the 60's my Dad used to order a dozen of your spitfires and pick them up when he worked over that way. Back then they had a trout season. Spitfire was the only spinner he ever used. I think I have everyone you ever made.  Thank you for producing such a high quality lure"



  • Man if you wanna catch some trout throw a joe’s fly. Me and my buddy pulled at least thirty out of the doe in East Tn I always called these the fish magnet.

  • Nice article. I’m glad to see another Ambrose enjoys fishing. My dad taught me how to fish with spinners. I have caught more WV and Maryland trout on Joe’s Flies, especially Potomac Coachmen then any other trout spinner. I just retired and living in Wild Wonderful West Virginia. Since retirement, I’m finally able to do a lot of fishing. Getting ready to place an order for some Joe Flies and head to the trout streams. Great Spinners!
