Dustin Wyatt – Private Ponds, Streams And Rivers Of Central TX, Texas
Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel
This is the #1 lure that I recommend to family and friends. I have 3 tackle boxes full of lures and I find myself catching so many fish with the dressed Aglia that I don't use anything else other than the occasional worm just to mix things up. I catch bluegill on size 0 and 1 and largemouth on #2-#5. Channel cats will even bite occasionally. The only difference is that bigger lures seem to be attacked more ferociously. Since my wife bought me my first "squirrel tail" with a gold blade in 1999, I have produced more fish than ever before. Now that my kids are old enough to fish, I am just going to go purchase a selection of Mepps lures and use the extra money and time on our fishing adventures. Thanks for the countless memories!
Seth – Perry, Iowa
Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth
I've only had this lure a couple of weeks and I've already caught over 25 bass and 2 Flathead Catfish with the #3 Aglia. It's the only lure I'll use when I go out to ponds and lakes looking for bass from now on. It was suggested to me by a guy at a large retail store who said the Aglia was the only lure he has in his bass fishing arsenal and now I see why.

'Great Few Hours At Loongana.'
After sitting around the house for the last few days and getting a little bored I decided enough was enough and headed on up to Loongana to have a spin in the Leven River as this area is still open for one more month. When I arrived there it was just great as there was low cloud cover and it was not one bit cold. Actually it was a strange sort of morning as it was quite mild for Loongana at this time of year. The river was at the perfect height and was a light tea color and looked the goods too. Started off right below the bridge flicking the little # 00 Mepps gold Black Fury across too the opposite bank at around 60 degrees and slowly worked it back towards me with the occasional light twitch of the rod. Even at 15 meters away I could see the spinner working in the tea colored river which was good. The first thirty meters of river didn't give up a sign of a fish which was a little disappointing as it looked like it would have held one or two at least.
I had finally reached the top of the first section of fast water and this is where I picked up my first brown of the morning. This wasn't a big fish either, but it was a fish and that's a start. Well that was the only one for the next hour of spinning the next 600 meters of the Leven, though I did have a couple of follows in that time too. The sign of fish was there, and so it was just a matter of getting them to strike the lure in the icy cold water. I tried several different models and colors to no avail, they just weren't into it. Then some one on a nearby property started firing their rifle around and this made me feel very uncomfortable in the river, and so I decided it was time to head back to the car and move on to another spot further upstream.
I headed on up to Taylor's Flats and started to work the river there and it wasn't too long before I had trout number two on the Gold Black Fury. It was another small (240gm)brown that took the spinner and so I was happy that I had decided to make the move further upstream. Over the next 400 meters of fast and medium flowing water I did pick up another two browns before calling it a day. This area of river at Taylor's Flats is a delightful place to have a spin, the beautiful surrounds makes it such a great place to fish. Had I not caught a fish in this area it wouldn't have bothered me too much as it was just such a relaxing place to be. The three browns here were just a bonus that came with the scenery really. So in the three and a half hours in the Leven River here at Loongana I finished the session with four small browns with the best one going 320gms. Couldn't have thought of a better way to spend the day actually.
