They're a little more fragile than Mepps and others, the wire shaft is thin and it can get bent. But they seem to spin easier with less speed than the others, which is why I like 'em.


Bingo. Same here , I’ve used them since I was 10 or so

Someone must be buying them, because they still make them.


These were caught on rooster tails this year in NM.

Eating trophy fish... really?
Eat brookies, planter rainbows... long john silvers etc.... most people will never catch 1 rainbow that size in a lifetimes of trout fishing.

Dayom. What lake and lure color, pls. Be nice to hit Groundhog Res in Col when up there hunting.

Sometimes TPandW stocks trout in small city lakes in Texas in the spring.


1/8th oz black and golds were the ticket that day…. Pretty sure they were stocked, meat was white instead of red…

I’ve caught tons on them. Bass, bluegill, walleye, pike, If I could only have 3 lures in my tackle box, that would be one of them.
