Description

All Mepps Aglia Longs are deep running spinners with willow leaf blades. The blade "hugs" the body of the spinner during retrieve, allowing it to stay in deep pockets long enough to attract a wide variety of 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.

Mepps dressed Aglia Longs come in sizes #00 through #4. The Aglia Long Mino is available in size #0 through #4. A #00 Aglia Long is an Ultra Lite spinner. It weighs only 1/18 oz. A #4 Aglia Long, by contrast weighs 1/2 oz. The Mepps Aglia Long, in all styles, like 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.

Size #00 Aglia Long hackle-dressed trebles or single hooks, and #00 Aglia Long Wooly Worms are perfect for panfish (bluegills, sunfish, perch and crappie) 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. Size #0 dressed and plain Aglia Longs and the #0 Aglia Long Mino will catch small stream trout.

Dressed and plain Aglia Longs and Aglia Long Minos in size #1 are perfect for larger stream trout. Size #1, #2, & #3 dressed and plain Aglia Longs and Aglia Long Minos are excellent for smallmouth bass and walleye.

Mepps dressed Aglia Longs and the Aglia Long Mino in sizes #3 and #4 are perfect for fishing largemouth bass in deeper water. Plain Aglia Longs in sizes #3 and #4 are ideal for large rainbow trout and steelhead, as well as coho (silver) and chinook (king) salmon. Size #4 dressed Aglia Longs and the Aglia Long Mino are ideal for northern pike. Try trolling the Aglia Long Mino for northern. Fished early in the season, while the water is still cold, these lures will also catch musky.

8 Reasons why the Mepps Aglia Long helps you catch more fish

The Mepps Aglia Long features unsurpassed Mepps quality throughout. Here are eight reasons why the Mepps Aglia Long will help you catch more fish:

  1. Strong and durable, imperfection-free, Swedish Sandvic stainless steel shaft wound and clipped in a manner to securely hold the entire lure together. Sandvic stainless steel is of the highest quality and will not break, rust or corrode even after repeatedly landing fish.
  2. Precisely machined, solid brass components are perfectly balanced to maintain maximum stability at all retrieval speeds. Poured components do not possess the same uniformity and lack the ability to perform as consistently as those that are machined.
  3. Genuine silver plating with a meticulously-applied, tarnish-resistant, epoxy clear-coat finish for one bright flash after another as the lure is pulled through the water. The flash produced by inferior metals such as nickel or chrome is not nearly as bright or as white in color as silver under the same conditions.
  4. Water-activated, self-lubricating, folded clevis allows the blade to begin spinning freely as soon as the lure hits the water. A folded clevis not only out-performs a stir-up style clevis, it is much stronger and far more durable as well.
  5. Naturally deep-running, willow-leaf shaped blade featuring a unique rainbo-scale decal. The decal reflects a prism of light containing all shades of the color spectrum, much like the scales on a fish, as the blade spins in the water.
  6. Extra-strong, razor-sharp, perfectly-honed premium quality hook to achieve the highest hooking percentage possible. Using a bigger and stronger hook also significantly increases the lure’s ability to keep a big fish on and get it into the boat.
  7. Exclusive, unbreakable strike-attractor bead (and/or tube) entices more fish to strike. The “hot spot” created by the bead (and/or tube) gives the fish a specific spot to target as it closes in for the strike.
  8. Hand-tied, premium-grade bucktail dressed treble hook secured by the strongest of waterproof epoxies for outstanding durability even after repeated use. A turkey quill strike attractor provides just enough contrast to entice the weariest of fish to strike.

Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
I have used the Mepps #3 Aglia Long for 20 some years and it is the best lure I have ever used. In fact, it is the only lure that I have in my tackle box. The only problem is that you do not sell them anymore. However, you have a young lady that works in your sales office that took the time to find me some. I would like to thank Mary Golbach for all her effort in finding us some more of the best lure there is.
Reviewer:Adrian Webb (Lake Barrington, Sheffield, Tasmania., Australia)
Fish Caught:Salmon, Atlantic
On hearing that the Inland Fisheries had just released 700 large Atlantic Salmon into Lake Barrington which is only 15kms from home, I decided to go and fish for them. On arrival, the lake was like a sheet of glass not a ripple any where, so, I headed down to fish off one of the pontoons set on the lake edge. I attached my Aglia Long Rainbo Scale (No.5) to my line and started casting, after 30 minutes, I hooked and landed a well conditioned 4.6kg.fish. Another victim of a great Mepps product.

Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth
Well one day I went fishing at my favorite fishing hole. I was using my Aglia Long treble hook Rainbo Scale. As I was reeling it in I caught a 14 incher bass! At a diffrent lake later, I caught another bass. Both bass caught on my Aglia Long, Ive been testing it now it's summer and haven't had any luck. I think they like it in spring. Try it in Spring.

Well one day I went fishing at my favorite fishing hole. I was using my Aglia Long treble hook Rainbo Scale. As I was reeling it in I caught a 14 incher bass! At a diffrent lake later I caught another bass. Both bass caught on my Aglia Long, I've been testing it now its more into summer and haven't had any luck. I think they like this color in Spring. Try it in Spring. I also one was reeling it in and felt a bite and set the hook but didn't feel anything so as I was pulling it up I saw a 2 inch bluegill on it!
Reviewer:Seth (, British Columbia, Canada)
Fish Caught:Trout, Rainbow
Today, I caught 15 Rainbow Trout in about an hour and a half with my Aglia Long. Most of them were pretty nice. Now, that spot I was fishing in is my favorite fishing hole! I cast right beside a "special" bush, reeled it in about ten feet and WHAMMO! a fish would bite, I'd set the hook, and bring it into the canoe. I'm a young fisherman, only 9 years old and I love fishing! Thanks, Mepps, for the fantastic lure!
Reviewer:Chris Hasson (Chicopee River, Massachusetts)
Fish Caught:Pickerel
On August 7th 2009, I caught a 29 inch pickerel on a Mepps Aglia Long #3 with a Silver prism style blade. I was throwing it next to a stick pile in shallow water(maybe 4 feet or so)using a meduim retrieve, when all of the sudden the pickerel hit the bait so hard it nearly ripped the rod right out of my hand. It jumped 2 ft out of the water. I fought it for 15 minutes before landing it. The pickerel was 4 lbs 2 ounces. I went to have it weighed and it was 1/2 pound off from receiving a state pin. Thanks MEPPS!!!!! This bait rules. Keep up the good work.
Reviewer:David Layton (Collins Pond,Scotia NY, New York)
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
This has to be the best lure I have ever used. To be more specific, it was a Mepps Lightning with a willow leaf spinner and chartreuse decal and bucktail of the same color. I went to Collins Pond in 1989 and the minute this lure hit the water, I caught bass, crappie and even sunfish and pumpkinseeds went after this lure. The only time I was ever able to find this lure was in the Mepps Bass spinner kit. Upon searching this site I was able to purchase 10. I cannot believe they discontinued this lure. You should endeavour to bring it back.This lure WORKS!!!. I fished for nearly three hours that day, and caught more than forty fish, until my line broke on a cast and I lost it because I neglected to check my line for fraying and tie a new knot. Anyway, please try to bring back this lure.
Reviewer:Todd Scheel (Various Vilas County, Wisconsin Lakes, Wisconsin)
Fish Caught:Walleye
I have had wonderful success walleye fishing with #2 Aglia Long single hook spinners in a variety of colors particularly early in the season. I fish them dressed with a half nightcrawler or a fathead minnow and work the edge of weedbeds.
Reviewer:August Mancuso (Remington Trails Pond, Katy, Texas)
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Caught a 10lb bass (have picture) on my Mepps Aglia #1 red and white blade. It's the one I go to when I'm not sure what to use. Covers a lot of water. It remains one of my primary go-to-lures when I'm unsure what to use. It has caught many a fish, trout and bass, and it has now caught my biggest bass to date. Thanks guys!
Reviewer:Jack McLaren (Boundary Waters)
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
I've caught the biggest Northern Pike of my life (40 inches) on a number 2 Mepps Hot Firetiger Aglia Long. This was the only lure that was working when we were in the boundary waters. The pike and bass went nuts over it! I've never tried it in my home waters, but, I'm sure with the flash it puts out it will catch fish.
Reviewer:Scott (Illinois River, Gore OK, Oklahoma)
Fish Caught:Trout, Rainbow
A great spinner - a 0 or 1 in silver, especially in the morning is my chosen lure for rainbows. Nice for medium pockets of water - like all Mepps has great action, and, for some reason in the 4-8 feet of water where the rainbows like to hide at the beginning or end of a pool - this is a "killer."
Reviewer:Steven Hertkorn (Delaware Canal, Yardley, Pennsylvania)
Fish Caught:Pickerel
This was the first time I have ever used this small Aglia Long, the blade size was only a 1, but by my third cast, I had a pretty nice sized pickerel. This lure I bought from a small bait store and it seems to be an older one, the blade was weird, the packaging was different from the other Aglia Longs that I have bought. But this lure is one of my favorites and all I fish with is Mepps spinners.
Reviewer:Guillaume (Richelieu River, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada)
Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern
I bought the Aglia Long #3 and directly went fishing. After 5 minutes, I caught some bass and 2 days later, I caught a nice northern pike. I didn't think I could with that kind of lure, I can't wait to go purchase other sizes and colors.
Reviewer:David Jeon (Montgomery, New Jersey)
Fish Caught:Trout, Rainbow
This lure is great. I have a rainbow trout silver blade with a white skirt, and it catches bass, large panfish, and trout! It's best casted about 10 ft away, or at weeds, and then immedietley drawing it in at a medium-fast rate, with pauses to let it sink, and then draw it back again, twitching the rod. The result is explosive!
Reviewer:Adam (Louisville, Kentucky)
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black)
I have found a favorite with the Aglia Long #2 w/ hot Firetiger blade. Within the last week, I have caught Crappie, Bluegill, Large and Small-mouth, and believe it or not several Catfish (on a spinner!)I love it.

Audio

The image you see behind the lure is a picture of the actual sound waves created by that particular lure.

To hear how your Mepps spinner sounds as it's being pulled through the water place your cursor over the lure photo.

Aglia Long #2

Waveforms of the sounds produced by the Aglia Long #2
The Mepps Aglia Long features a willow leaf blade that "hugs" the body of the spinner allowing it to run deeper than most other spinners. Because the blade is long and narrow and it spins close to the body of the spinner, the Aglia Long does not produce a heavy "thump." Instead, it produced a muted "chug" during the retrieve. The Mepps Giant Killer features the heaviest willow leaf blade we offer. It sounds like an old steam locomotive as it is being pulled through the water. If you listen carefully you realize the smaller #2 Aglia Long blade produces a sound very similar to the Giant Killer blade, but, it is much more muted.
