Unfortunately they are not made anymore! Norstream make a replica (Insect Spinner) - I have used it and it certainly works on trout. It does seem to twist the line also, more than other spinners do. They are stocked in Tackleworld here so may be standard in all Tackleworld stores.
Those Norstream Insect spinners are crap. I got a heap of them a while back and tested them out..
I tried them soon after I lost my last Jensen Insect spinner! The place I was using them had reasonable to strong flow from memory if that matters. I certainly caught trout on them, perhaps at the time the trout were hitting everything. What I do remember is they seemed to twist the line a lot more than other spinners so I gave up using them.
I got sent some a while back to test and sent them back to the bin very quickly
shocking line twisting non working lures imo
you gotta hav a crack even if yr just pissin in the wind

Also hard to go past Ecogear SX40s. Yes they are a Bream lure, but work wonders on the Trout as well.
I thought those Gillies spinners were worse than the Norstreams..
I think most guys would agree the Jensen Insects are one of the best spinners IMO

I'm not much of a fresh water fisho but I also have caught both trout and red fin on these tsunami lures in both rainbow and brown trout colours
also have used halco scorpion 35s in golden green ( R26 ) to some success these look like a small reddy
again have caught me both trout and red fin
Is that on the little spinners ? Last week I accidentally hooked two rainbow very decent size at lake Dewar.
