Fish Caught: Salmon, Atlantic - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Pink - Salmon, Sockeye (red) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Salmon, Chinook (king) - Salmon, Quananiche (landlocked)I want to tell Mr. Sheldon what a big fan of Mepps lures I have been for the last 35 years. Mepps outfish most other brands. I bought a ton of Mepps spinners and spoons and caught a lifetime of trout and salmon! Mr. Sheldon, I hope your company grows and reaches the entire world in your quest to satisfy millions of fishermen with Mepps! You make the number one spinners in the entire world, undoubtedly no one can dispute that! I've been using Mepps ever since adolescence and your lures never let me down! I hope you keep making more successful lures in the future and grow your business a thousand fold. Don't forget Syclops! Simply better than Pixees, no other spoon comes close to producing fish than Syclops. I wanted to send you a personal letter by mail, but I'm so busy with work, I hope this email reaches you safely. I just want to commend you for making the best trout and salmon lures in the world. Been using Mepps for 35 years and I'm a very happy customer! Thank you so much and I wish you much continued success!
Lure: Aglia Long
Fish Caught: Salmon, AtlanticOn 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: Grayling - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Atlantic - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Kokanee - Salmon, Pink - Trout, Dolly Varden - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Salmon, Chinook (king)In the annual Soldotna Trustworthy Ice Fishing Derby, which covers the lakes on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, I caught a "Strait Flush" (char, kokanee, lake trout, rainbow and pike) using the #1 Mepps Syclops in Hot Orange. It also caught the largest grayling on the #1. In fact, it was the exact same lure! (I never lost it) I can't say enough about how great this lure is for ice fishing although I catch fish all summer on it as well.

Fish Caught: Bass, Sea - Mackerel - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Atlantic - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow - Trout, Sea/SpeckledIn England these lures are dissappearing, no one stocks them and can't be bothered to get them, I see the Comets have dissappeared from the catalog as well, darn shame, best Salmon & Trout catchers going, if there's a fish in the pool,second if not first cast guanteed.
Fish Caught: Salmon, AtlanticI love this product it is so good I caught my first ever salmon as I am only 15 defintely worth a buy.
Lure: Flying C
Fish Caught: Salmon, Atlantic - Steelhead - Salmon, Quananiche (landlocked)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!
