Lure: Thunder Bug
Fish Caught: Trout, BrownI have caught and landed many awesome trout using Mepps lures. A very memorable 6lb brown trout that I caught, landed & released using a white Mepps Thunder Bug. This has thankfully given me memories that will never get away. I use all of the colours of the Thunder Bug range though out the year & here in New Zealand we are lucky that most of our streams, rivers & lakes allow us to use these lures. For me being new to the sport of fishing, the Mepps Thunder Bugs allow me to match the hatch like a pro & still command the respect from even the most staunch fly fisherman because of the way my fish go back into the water after they were caught on a Mepps...... LOVE MY FISHING.....LOVE MY MEPPS.
Fish Caught: Trout, Brown - Trout, RainbowThe MEPPS XD lures are deadly on every New Zealand river I have tried them on as they are the perfect wieght and size for getting to the fish in various water types. On the Ohinemuri river I caught a nice 4lb brown trout which I saw chase the rainbow trout blade all the way from the opposite bank it was so desperate to get at the lure.
