The Mepps Aglia spinner is the original French spinner. It is the World's #1 Lure. More trophy fish have been caught on the Mepps Aglia than any other lure. The Mepps Aglia is extremely popular with fishermen world-wide because it will catch just about any freshwater fish and many species of saltwater fish.
Mepps Aglias are available in sizes #0 through #4. Mepps plain treble hook Aglias in size #0 are perfect for panfish (bluegills or sunfish) and small stream trout. They are very light, however, and require a nimble rod, equipped with a light action reel spooled with light line; nothing heavier than six-pound test. Two-pound test to four-pound test is better.
Aglias in size #1 and #2 are perfect for larger stream trout and large bluegills, sunfish and crappies. Size #2 Aglias are also excellent for smallmouth bass and walleye. These sizes are ideal for teaching youngsters the basics of spinner fishing, as they are heavy enough to cast well with light tackle, yet they are small enough to catch a wide variety of fish.
Size #4 Aglias are ideal for large rainbow trout and steelhead, as well as coho (silver) and chinook (king) salmon.

I have fished East Grand Lake in Maine for over 20 years and use Mepps spinners almost exclusively. I have found them to be outstanding smallmouth fish-catchers during June. I stock up every spring and have never been disappointed with the results.
