The Story

Created by Terry Wison the author of Bluegill Fly Fishing and Flies, Crappie Fly Fishing: A Seasonal Approach, Largemouth Bass Fly Fishing: Beyond the Basics, and Smallmouth Bass Fly Fishng: A Practical Guide, the Brim Reaper is designed to sink head first and has a buggy silhouette that makes it versatile and capable of being fished in a variety of different ways. Strip and retrieve or let it sit under an indicator over weed beds. Just get it to the fish and it will do the work.

Size 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's name says it all Bluegill and red ear cannot leave this fly alone. The occasional bass will also hit it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brim Reaper is the perfect name Tried this fly on my nephew's recommendation in my farm pond. I ordered 4 in each of the 4 colors. After catching several fish on a spinning rod with worms, I switched to a fly rod with a black brim reaper fly. For 25 minutes I caught a bluegill or shellcracker on EVERY cast! Never saw anything like it!! Chuck S

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Little Fly! I am very impressed with these flies! I bought them in olive and orange to use in bream fishing at a small lake near my home. They sink at a moderate rate, fast enough but not extremely fast, and the bream hit them aggressively. First time out I caught several good sized ones over the course of the morning on a slow retrieve after counting them down only a few seconds. The fishing was a bit slow until I tied one on. This is a simple fly in appearance but it is very effective -an amazing little fly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective Pond fishing and caught some bluegill, crappie and largemouth bass on this guy when they weren’t really hitting the other patterns. Got it snagged in a tree, but definitely going to order more of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brim Reaper works! A simple, effective, DURABLE bluegill and crappie killer. I broke the first fish off on the strike because I was too lazy to change the tippet from trout midge tippet to something more appropriate. Tied another Brim Reaper on after changing the tippet(!) and fished with it all afternoon and it still looks good. Great purchase, great fly!
