Casts like a bullet... Drops Quickly... Runs Deep...

Here is the perfect salmon and steelhead lure for the pier or stream fisherman. It is proven in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. The Mepps Flying C is a heavyweight spinner that drops deep and stays deep throughout the retrieve. In fact, it’s one of Mepps deepest running spinners. Its bright fluorescent sleeve acts as a highly reflective attractor. The Flying C comes in two hefty weights: 5/8 oz. and 7/8 oz. Two heavy duty blade sizes: #4 & #5. Bodies are solid brass. Silver blades are genuine silver plate. Gold blades are polished brass. Painted blades are finished with computer age epoxy. All Flying C’s are available with either a perma steel treble or single salmon hook.

The Flying C at 5/8 and treble hook in glo pink is the best silver salmon lure I have ever used.
Limits every day with just this one lure and nothing else. Finally had to retire one after 26 fish caught on it.
Fishing the Alaska Peninsula on the Egegik River.

I bought samples of Flying Cs from Northern Ireland in late 80s or early nineties and introduced them on both rivers in Yakutat. They were an immediate success!
I have been using Flying Cs almost exclusively every year since.

Fish Caught:Trout, Rainbow
The rainbow trout sure like these things. Caught trout both trolling and casting them. The trout here run 3-5 lbs, but, both 5/8 and 7/8 ounce spinners work, trolling and casting as well. Worst thing is my 12 year old niece was the one who turned me onto these spinners. Chartreuse seems to be what the trout want to eat.

I purchased (2) 6 packs of lures thru the internet from Mepps for Christmas this past year after spending 6 days on the Sound at Valdez.We were there in August and limited out every day using our Mepps.
Trolling or spin casting-made no difference.
A fantastic product I will use when we go to Alaska again in August, this year.
Try it, you'll like it.

The Flying C is one of the best salmon/steelhead catches more fish than any other for me. Lures that GLO or not, all the colers are a must have for your box,a guy could cast to Jupiter, hence, Flying C. ONE MORE CAST!

Fish Caught:Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Pink
Two years ago my brother and I went To Alaska to do some salmon fishing for the first time. I wasn't sure what to use, so I read many articles on good lures and spinners. Well, I took a whole arsenal of tackle with me. After trying many things, I tied on an orange Flying-C with a gold blade and I hooked onto a silver salmon right away. My brother put one on and hooked one right away himself. Other fisherman were around, but we were the only ones catching anything. Everyone was asking what we were using everyday. The owner of the lodge we were staying at had never seen one before. Now, he has them in his lodge for sale. This is the third year in a row we are going back to Alaska, but the Flying C is the only lure we take with us. These spinners cast great so I can cover a lot of area. I used a number of colors, but the orange is a must with either a gold or silver blade.

I recently purchased the Flying C lures after seeing a fella, who lived in Europe, use them in the Kenosha (Wisc.) harbor - he was the only one catching fish. I have to say -- where have you been all my life? Had I not seen what he had been throwing, I would most likely be struggling to catch fish like the many others who are scratching their heads and wondering what I am using.

My wife, myself and a fishing buddy have been successfully catching fish since we first started using the Flying C. This is only the beginning as the best fishing is yet to come this Fall - I can hardly wait. What an awesome lure!

Once again the people at Mepps outdo themselves. I bought a few of these lures when my local tackle shop first started stocking them and took them out fishing the next day for salmon and steelhead. What a lure! In the first hour I had caught more salmon and steelhead than most of the other anglers who had been out their all morning. I was also able to land a nearly 27 lb. Landlocked salmon. It was nearly a record breaker! Keep them comin' Mepps!

Fish Caught:Salmon, Coho (silver)
On November 14, 2005 I went down to the Sacramento River to get a morning of fishing in. I got down to the river at about 7:00 A.M. in the morning. It was a nice cool morning, it was nice to be out on the river fishing.
I was throwing a Flying C spinner in green and at about 7:45 I hooked this 30 LB. MONSTER SALMON. It took me about 30 MIN. to land this MONSTER.

Fished the Flying C for the first time, with good results. It casts great and the silver salmon love it.
