Bantam Syclops Testimonials

Pete Wise – East Licking Creek, Port Royal, Pennsylvania

Lure: Bantam Syclops

Fish Caught: Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow

Ultralight spinning for trout is my passion, and I can always count on Mepps lures for success. On a recent trip to a favorite small stream, I caught and released native brook trout as well as wild rainbows and browns...all taken on a #0 Bantam Syclops spoon in silver and red. This great lure has never let me down. It is one of my "go to" lures for trout and panfish, and the larger Syclops are outstanding for river smallmouth bass! Simply put, Mepps lures catch fish when nothing else will.

Tom Barnett – Little Red River, Heber Springs, AR, Arkansas

Lure: Bantam Syclops

Fish Caught: Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow

I have fished for trout for 30 years, mostly in Arkansas's Little Red River, using ultralight spinning equipment. Certain stretches of the river require single, barbless hooks for catch-and-release fishing. About a year ago I tried a Bantam Syclops with its single hook easily made barbless, and it is now my lure of choice -- with and without the barb. I love the action of the lure and the results. As a plus, the weight and the design make it ideal for fishing shallow shoals without snags.
