Review 1 for Wilson's Brim Reaper

from Naperville IL.
"Tied the olive color as a trailer to a popper on a bass/panfish pond First cast hit a large bluegill, caught numerous bluegills and 3 smallies 1lb.-11/2lb. Not one hit on the popper that is usually an attractive fly.Need to buy some more after a couple hours the one I started with was pretty beaten up"

"We took our 2.5 year old to Price Lake on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Dad was after a few trout and to keep the wee one occupied I tied a Brim Reaper on her pole and tossed it out. Dad was out fished that day and I could not have been happier. I strongly recommend this lure!"

"Fished this on my 8-wt bass rod in the shallows, just along the weed-line, with short jig-type strips. On my second cast, the biggest blue-gill I've ever caught at that pond hammered it and ran; he was about 12 inches or so, and thick. Shortly after, I was fishing around a boat launch with this thing, using the same retrieve, and caught a couple smaller bass (around a pound, maybe a pound and a half) and a half dozen (or so, I don't keep count) crappies.
This is a fun fly to fish in the shallows, I'm sure it'll cast well on lighter rods, and it catches fish."
