Im new and only have a spinning rod as of now. Do yall think this set up would be good for spin fishing. As of now im only using rapala. Im not a big fan if the roster-tails. I would like to go more natural if I can.
That's a good way to fish and one of my go to rigs. By using the bottom as a weight it will bounce or tick along the bottom and does well. I have switched from the two fly rig with a weight on the bottom to using a heavy fly as the bottom fly here the last few months.

Using a weight on the bottom will still get you hung up from getting the weight snagged in rocks and all. One of the reasons I use a weighted bottom fly. Figured if I'm going to get hung up, might as well have the bottom rig have a jig hook on it
