Here's a short bit of info on the Mepps for you Seb..

Here's one of the first Mepps spinners that were made.. Frenchman Andre Meulnart started production of them back in 1938, he also made his own reels back then too.. He was an engineer at Peugeot back then and used his engineering knowledge to design the Mepps spinner.
'' Manufacture pour la d'Engines de Precision pour la Peche Sportive " he used the capital letters for the products name of "MEPPS".
When I first started using them 1964/65 the only one available in Sth Aust was a silver blade Black Fury...Certainly gone ahead since then, they were first released onto the US market back in 1951. They are now American owned (since the mid 50's Todd Sheldon) and there's a Mepps factory in Wisconsin USA, but all the products are still made in France and sent to the USA where they're assembled for the US market etc.. All my Mepps lures are still come from and are made in the factory at Contes, France.. Even today every Mepps lure is assembled by hand in both factories.. The Mepps at BCF, Anaconda etc all come from France as well.. :tu: If you go onto the Mepps site you can see videos of how they're assembled and how they work in water.. :wt:

Just some discontinued product hunting today. Anyone who fishes small lures knows how invaluable the flipsider boxes are with a small modification with the 3714 able to hold 64 lures completely tangle free

No just the bugs as far as I'm aware. Some of my best Bream have come on those things

I bought the whole lot :te:

Instead of the jumbled mess, 2 cuts per section and bam tangle free easy selection heaven. The slots aren't deep enough to hold anything bigger than 60mm shallow divers though. Pity Plano didn't continue making them
