|Testimonial:||Fished the Thunder Bug lure for the 1st time in small waters in high country wilderness areas. It was a riot to sight fish brook trout and watch them chase this lure like a pack of puppy dogs until one would bull its way through and take it. Easily caught & released a few dozen over two days. On a second trip into Never Summer WA, Cutthroats slammed this lure and while the fish caught & released weren't high in numbers, the excitement was good. I can't wait to try this lure on larger warm water species!|
|Fish Caught:||Trout, Rainbow|
|Testimonial:||I've been fishing for trout now since November of last year testing lures and colors every week and more. I have caught most of my browns and rainbows on Mepps inline spinners, dark green with a brass blade,and all chartreuse 1/6 to 1/4 weight also will bring up fish from the holes with a hard hit that always lands a fish. In my opinion they are the best spinners for Colorado rivers and streams, followed of coarse by Panther Marten spinners another great lure. I switch back and forth between the two and try different colors but ALWAYS go home during season with fresh fish.|

First of all I would like to applaud your grandfather for making the best lure out there. My father taught me at a very young age that a Mepps Aglia #3 gold-gray was the best lure on the planet. I caught my first fish on a lure with this model. As far as I knew, why use anything else. I can honestly say there has been thousands of fish caught on this lure by my family. I've caught largemouth bass, striper, sandbass, crappie, brim, and even catfish on this model. It never really matters if we are fishing a creek, pond, lake, or river. I've even caught trout, red drum, durado, ling and other salt water species off the Texas coast on the Aglia #3 gold-gray. I've caught browns and rainbows in Colorado on the Aglia #1 silver-gray. Aglias' catch everything! When you say it is the world's #1 lure, you aren't kiddin'!
All my bass fishing buddies laugh at me when I tie on the lucky Aglia #3 gold-gray. But they ain't laughing at the end of the day. They all have your lure in their tacklebox now! I could tell you many Mepps stories and probably write a book about it, and maybe one day I will. I'll dig around the archives and try and send you some pics of some great Mepps experiences. Once again, thank you and your family for producing the world's #1 lure.
Mepps Customer Always,
