The Mepps Aglia spinner is the original French spinner. It is the World's #1 Lure. More trophy fish have been caught on the Mepps Aglia than any other lure. The Mepps Aglia is extremely popular with fishermen world-wide because it will catch just about any freshwater fish and many species of saltwater fish.

Lure size is important. The rule of thumb is use smaller lures to catch smaller fish and larger lures to catch larger fish. Keep in mind plain spinners present a smaller profile than dressed spinners, so they will appear smaller to the fish. This makes them perfect for panfish and small stream trout. Fishing with dressed spinners can produce larger fish, but, when stream trout fishing, you will probably catch more fish using plain spinners.

Plain Treble and Single Hook

Mepps plain treble or single hook Aglias in size #00 or #0 are perfect for panfish (bluegills or sunfish) and small stream trout. They are very light, however, and require a nimble rod, equipped with a light action reel spooled with light line; nothing heavier than six-pound-test. Two-pound-test to four-pound-test is better. Aglias in size #1 and #2 are perfect for larger stream trout and large bluegills, sunfish and crappies. Size #2 Aglias are also excellent for smallmouth bass and walleye. These sizes are ideal for teaching youngsters the basics of spinner fishing, as they are heavy enough to cast well with light tackle, yet they are small enough to catch a wide variety of fish.

Size #4 and # 5 Aglias are ideal for large rainbow trout and steelhead, as well as coho (silver) and chinook (king) salmon.

Mepps single hook Aglias can be used virtually anywhere single hook lures are required. They are perfect for Alaska.

Dressed Treble

Mepps dressed Aglia spinners come in sizes #00 through #5. A #00 is a Mepps Ultra Lite and it weighs only 1/18 oz. These little trout and panfish lures are dressed with natural hackle. They are also available as wooly worms. The #0 Aglia Spin Fly is also a Wooly Worm. It too is perfect for both panfish and trout and weighs 1/12 oz. Larger dressed Aglias weigh up to 1/2 oz. (#5). The hooks on dressed Aglias in sizes #1-#5 are dressed with natural squirrel tail or bucktail.

Dressed Aglias (Ultra Lites and Wooly Worms) in size #00 or #0 are perfect for panfish (bluegills or sunfish) and small stream trout. They are very light, however, and require a nimble rod, equipped with a light action reel spooled with light line; nothing heavier than six-pound-test. Two-pound-test to four-pound-test is better. Dressed Aglias in size #1 and #2 are perfect for larger stream trout and large bluegills, sunfish and crappies. Size #2 Aglias are also excellent for smallmouth bass and walleye.

Mepps Aglias in sizes #3 and #4 are preferred by largemouth bass fishermen. In fact, the #3 dressed Mepps Aglia was rated the best all around lure for largemouth bass by the readers of Sports Afield magazine.

Size #4 and #5 Aglias are ideal for large rainbow trout and steelhead, as well as coho (silver) and chinook (king) salmon. Northern pike and giant tackle busting musky will inhale a dressed #5 Mepps spinner.

The Mepps #3 gold with the brown tail is by far my favorite lure in my tackle box. I will not head out fishing if I don't have one. I have caught all of the fish listed above on a gold #3 with a brown tail. I typically target Northern pike, but will frequently catch Bass, and other fish, unintentionally. The best pike I ever caught was around 40 inches, but I have caught countless others over the years. Whenever someone asks my advice on fishing, I recommend the Mepps #3 and tell them that is all they will ever need.

This is a very great product for use in lake or streams for trout.
Reviewer:Caleb Taylor (Tomahawk, Wisconsin)
Fish Caught:Musky
The #5 Aglia is my favorite lure for Pike. I've caught countless Northern on these and my fair share of Largemouth and Smallmouth, but, my absolute best catch was the 45" Musky this lure helped me land.
Reviewer:Suzie Takle (Boot Lake, Minnesota)
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Caught and released nice 4 lb northern on Boot Lake, Becker County MN. Used Brown #3 Mepps Agila. Mepps is the best lure that you can find.

I have been fishing with a variety of Mepps #5 Aglia spinners this year and have had the best fishing of my life. The whole family has followed my lead and we have been catching more Pike than ever before.Just a solid product, we are all hooked on Mepps.
Reviewer:Joe Schmitz (Sweden, Sweden)
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
If I could have just one fishing lure in my tackle box, it would be the Mepps Aglia dressed #5 Silver/Brown. B5ST S-BR

It consistantly catch pike and large perch. For big pike, I rely on the Mepps Giant Killer.
Reviewer:Dave Wilson (Rahway River, Carteret NJ, New Jersey)
Fish Caught:Perch, White
I have caught many nice White Perch on Mepps Aglias, but once again I was thoroughly convinced that the biggest ones come on the Size 5 dressed Firetiger with the yellow row of beads. Today 6/23/16 about two hours into the outgoing tide, around 12:50 PM, next to a concrete bridge abutment I had that unmistakeable load up and agressive pull down of a very large WP. My river pole is an old 9' Berkely 70s vintage surf rod with Penn CC5000 reel and 50lb braid tied direct to the Mepps and 90lb test snap swivel for a little extra weight and movement in the tide. The perch was easily over two lbs and made a powerful run for cover in the tide. The NJ State salt water record is 2lb 12oz and I'm certain we were very close to 2-1/2 with this one.
Thanks for my PB White Perch!

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Crappie (Black) - Pike, Northern - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye
I remember I showed up to a spot my friend showed me and I really wasn't sure what kind of fish were in this pit. I just had a gold undressed Mepps number 2 size spinner on and I threw it in the corner of this pond. Next thing ya know I thought I had a big snag, but, sure enough I reeled in a 36" northern pike...

The lure I reach for first, no matter what I am fishing for is a Gold size 1. It's always catching me trout at the small lake near where I live, catching my limit, even when those right near me are catching nothing. I like how it makes me look like a great fisherman by just knowing the right lure to use. People ask me what I am using and I just tell them to switch to a Mepps spinner. You made Mepps my favorite lure when you first sent me your Fishing Guide 20 years ago and I have been using them and catching fish ever since.

Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
(#5 Gold Aglia) Sometime mid-80's my father said he was going to teach me how to catch a northern pike. By this point I was catching plenty of northerns myself, but, I think he just wanted to prove to me he could still out-fish me, lol. So, he casts out the Mepps and told me this is the speed you should retrieve at, and he was going on and on, and then he said, when you feel that hit just set the hook like this, and as soon as he said that he hooked a pike! We laughed and couldn't believe he hooked a fish during this "lesson". I remember it being a smallish "hammer handle" as he called them.

(Mepps used #5 Gold Aglia B5 G) We were fishing with my cousin who was about my age, so three of us were in the boat. By this time, we had a 1984 Grumman 14 foot aluminum boat equipped with a 15HP Evinrude electric start. Perfect little boat and a nice upgrade from our old 12 foot Starcraft rowboat. My father decides it's time to show me and my cousin how to work a Mepps through the openings in the weeds. He casts his Mepps and as he is reeling in he is telling us how you have to work that lure down Bleecker St. and then you turn it up Jefferson Ave(streets in Utica, N.Y. where we grew up). As he turned that lure through a different path in the weed openings, a big northern pike slammed it. Me and my cousin just about jumped out of the boat as that fish hit close to us. Well that big fish took the Mepps straight down and there was no stopping her. The line didn't break, but I remember my father pulling up a nice bunch of weeds and no fish. Just another great memory and I credit the Mepps!

Over the years, we have easily caught hundreds if not thousand of fish on the Mepps. Everyone I fish with I show them how effective they are.

Fish Caught:Trout, Brown
Hi !
I use this spoon (silver or gold #00 to #1)for 25 years. I practice Ultra Lites in small mountain rivers. Ideal for trouts (brown) and perch. Nothing resists it! One of the only few which can turn when I fish upstream to downstream with small flow. It's simply the best!
Best regards from France)
Reviewer:Michael Chakrabarty (River Thames , United Kingdom)
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
I live in the south of England where there are many lakes and rivers near me. I nagged my sister to get me a Mepps that I wanted so she got me a number 1 in silver. Long story short, the first time I went out with it I lost it in a tree, but, a month later my dad got it back. And, since then, I've caught more fish on it than anything else. Perch, here, love it and I caught 13 on Halloween under an hour which is still my record and will stand for many years probably. It's quite simply the best lure money can get you.
Reviewer:Cyril E Sanderson (Private Pond, Kansas)
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
It was another tough, tough day at a private pond near my in-laws. The conditions couldn't have been worse and after 1.5hrs and only 3 fish to my name...I was ready to throw in the towel. I threw just about every lure I could think of that would work in shallow weedy conditions and was ready to throw in the towel until I remembered how easily it was to keep an Aglia right above the weeds in this shallow water.

I started throwing a Silver Dressed Aglia #4 and caught a fish on the very first catch. To prove it wasn't a fluke, I went from catching 3 fish in an hour and a half to 20 Largemouth Bass per hour and even a couple of hawgs. I don't know what it is about this lure, but this is definitely not the first time this lure has saved my fishing day.

Exact same situation December 2014. I caught absolutely nothing in nearly 2hrs and my Silver Dressed Aglia #4 immediately began catching me 16x Largemouth bass per hour.

This is the real deal, folks!
Reviewer:Jerry Wilson (Elk River, Avery County, North Carolina)
Fish Caught:Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow
I am in the high Appalachians of Northwest North Carolina. Don't let Elk "River" fool you. Like most of our cold, rugged, high mountain streams it is 50 yards wide at it's widest and normally half that on average. It is, on average knee to waist deep with pools just over my head. I am 6'2". However, it is running down a mountain and the currents, undertows, whirls and eddies make it dangerous. Our trout season opens the first Saturday in April - many times up here there is a snow covering on opening day, but the Elk is normally thawed sufficiently for fishing. From opening day until mid-September the copper, undressed Aglia, "0", single drop is THE Spinner. This spinner is effective on Rainbow until the Elk freezes over-in January usually. However, I switch to pink in the fall, because the Browns and Brookies seem to love it and few Browns or Brookies are caught before fall here. Come to Avery and Watauga counties in North Carolina to trout fish. If you have tried the Asheville area it is great trout fishing. We are 1500 to 3000+ feet above Asheville; we are a different world.

I use the Mepps #3 or #4 gold spoon and white skirt. Man in the Tran will tell you its the best darn thing since Larry the cable guy. This lure will catch anything and everything. I out fish everybody. They be using all sorts of fancy doodads and whatnots but my simple Mepps always catch me more bigger better fish every time. I usually fish that Blackwater River its got alot of different type of fish and my one lure will catch them all. Before I found the Mepps, I couldn't get no more than an occasional bite. Now when I go fishing, I catch tons of fish. Thank you Mepps you made my fishing better.
Reviewer:Larry Scott (Canadian Lake, Northwest Territories)
Fish Caught:Walleye
Here's a wonderfully true testimonial of the #2 brown squirrel tail Mepps. In 1975, I met a fellow in law school. We became, and have remained, best friends for the past 40 years. A few years after we graduated from law school, we were able to afford a fly in fishing trip to Canada. I took every northern and walleye lure known to man, as well as a bucket full of nightcrawlers. The weather was perfect for our four day trip. Only problem was nothing was biting. We trolled for hours...and then days. I pulled out a #2 Squirrel Tail Mepps, a bait I'd often used for bass in Kansas farm ponds. I had no expectation that it would work on walleye or notheren in Canada, but, I was scraping the bottom of the barrel. The instant the #2 Mepps hit the water, all of mother nature expoded! One helluve big northern brought to net. Every cast, another big northern. I gladly offered one to my friend Steve. He met the same success as I. For 40 years now we've made our fly in trips to Canada...we've taken our sons when they got old enough, and now we're taking our grandsons. We always fish first with our #2 Mepps. It has become a legend for three generations of us.

Fish Caught:Catfish, Channel - Catfish, Flathead
I was using a dressed Aglia in the pond, and, "boom" this catfish came out of nowhere. I was using 6 lb test and he ran into the sticks and I got scared. I finally did get him in and he weighed 5 lbs.
Reviewer:Ed Sanderson (Farm Pond, Stark KS, Kansas)
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)
I've caught many bass (and other fish) for many years on Mepps dressed Aglia lures.

One experience I recently had was a farm pond in SE KS. I fished for an hour in December and not a single bite. I put a Silver dressed Aglia #4 on my line and caught 16 largemouth bass in the next hour. 2 of which were easily over 4lbs.

It's a must-have lure for those tough days on the water.
Reviewer:Jared (Little Traverse Bay, Michigan)
Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth - Steelhead - Trout, Lake
Absolutely lights out when it comes to lake trout spawning in Lake Michigan. The lakers come in the shallows and they crush the #5 silver Mepps like it's their first meal they've ever seen! Time and time again, I've used them and I have caught more fish than anyone that fishes lake trout in the fall. Great product and great times!
Reviewer:Hoodo (Ghost Lake, Hayward, Wisconsin)
Fish Caught:Musky
I was using a #5 Mepps dressed Aglia. It was hot green with a bright green bucktail and a treble hook. I was on a one week fishing trip with Tushoes, who had already caught multiple muskellunges and walleyes, but I was get skunked by the big game. I tried my old reliable Mepps spinner and got two follow ups. I was unable to hook those monsters, though.
The trip was coming to a close and I had still not caught the big fish. Feeling desperate, I put on the lucky green Mepps #5 and threw a maximum of thirty casts, and then a fish was hooked! He jumped out of the water and threw the hook. In tears, I sloppily threw another cast, and an even bigger fish was on the line! We were able to bring him in take a picture and release him in good time.

Thank you, Mepps.

Reviewer:Don Nerangis (Lower Manitou Lake, Ontario, Canada)
Fish Caught:Musky
On June 16, 2014, during my fishing trip to the Manitou Weather Station, Lower Manitou Lake, I caught a 51 1/2 "Clear" Muskie weighing 44 pounds with girth of 28 inches.

This, according to Kris, owner and manager of the camp is the largest Muskie caught in the approximate 9 years they have owned the camp.

This was done using a plain silver # 5 Mepps with 10 pound line and light gear. Further I caught a 32 1/2 inch Muskie and a 30 1/2 Walleye using the same lure and gear the same week.

I have been fishing with Mepps spinners since I was a kid and have caught hundreds of different fish on them! I caught my largest Large mouth Bass to date on a number 4 Aglia plain! It was a 20 inch fish and not sure of weight because I released it! Mepps does it again!

Aglia #3

Waveforms of the sounds produced by the Aglia #3
The Mepps Aglia is the classic Mepps spinner. Living up to its name, the Aglia blade has a classic steady beat as it is retrieved. In fact, a musician can count its quick beat... 1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4. It's both lively and bright. Because the French blade on the Aglia spins at a steady 60 angle from the spinner's body, its sound is also steady and very easy to hear.
