I gave up fishing a few years back (not sure why, no real reason) but nothing ever worked as good as a Mepps spinner. The action is second to none and they'll spin better than any other even with a very slow retrieve.
I have a tiny Mepps #0 1/8 oz spinner that's caught dozens of sunfish, bluegills, crappies and even a 3 lb largemouth bass. It's been snagged a bunch of times, but I always got it back and never broke the hook. Most of the paint is gone (used to be red with tiny yellow polka-dots), with a black spinner blade.
It's one of my most prized possessions.
