The Black Fury with a plain treble hook is one of the great all-time Mepps spinners. The special Black Fury blade spins closer to the body than the classic Aglia blade so it easily fishes shallow to mid-depths. All Mepps Black Furys are excellent low light (early morning, evening or overcast) spinners as well as a perfect choice for sunny days when contrast with the brightness of the water, weeds and structure is needed. Whether you select a plain or dress Black Fury is strictly personal preference. Most panfish and bass fishermen prefer dressed spinners, while most trout and salmon fishermen prefer plain treble hook Black Furys. Either is very effective at catching a wide variety of freshwater game fish. Largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and walleye fishermen should also consider a Black Fury Combo.
