This review is just until I get an update/message from the seller. I got my order today, but it only included the first box of the two box set. Not much of a value of you only get half the flies you were expecting.
I’ll update this review after I’ve been contacted. *UPDATE*–I contacted Amazon and Ventures after only getting half the order–as Ventures doesn’t do the shipping themselves, it definitely wasn’t their fault, and Amazon quickly sent out a complete order after I talked to their Skynet AI chatbot.
I’m very happy with the quality and assortment of flies–it’s approximately half dry and half nymphs, with a little bit of streamers and terrestrials thrown in. I’m a beginner fly fisherman, and it certainly gives you a lot of usable flies fast.
A great, cheaper way to bolster your collection, and they’re made in the USA! Also, the personal attention and concern from Ventures was much appreciated. I’m trying to get my dad and brother into it, so I’ll definitely be buying more sets of these in the future! For the price, quality, and service, these can’t be beat.
Last spring, I decided to try out fly fishing. I started to like it so I ordered this product, so I’d have many types of flies to try out as I wasn’t sure what flies I needed. With this assortment, I’ve caught many panfish and bass in southeast Texas and some trout in the up in the Rockies.
The quality of the flies is surprising, however, they do break down after a few good fighting fish get hooked on them, though I believe this is the case with most flies anyway. In conclusion, these are great flies for the price and excellent for getting into fly fishing.
Do the math. 122 flies for $84 is $. 68 a piece. THAT’S CHEAP! Being a fly fishermen for over 50 years I was quite skeptical. Been down this road before and was NOT happy. So far, Ventures has gained an extremely satisfied customer! The quality of the Ventures flies are very good.
At least the patterns. I will come back and update after I fish them some? See how they stand up and if the materials are good? THANKS VENTURES!.
Features: The Booyah Pond Magic Spinnerbait catches fish in big lakes as well as ponds and streams. Downsized performance perfect for imitating tiny forage and exploring smaller fisheries. Tandem blades for optimal water displacement and increased attraction.
Equipped with a 60-strand Bio-Flex silicone skirt and premium 2/0 Mustad Ultra Point Hooks. Available in 11 colors. When early fishing season is still here and the fish are still finicky, the Booyah Pond Magic Spinnerbait might be the answer.
This bait features perfect imitation of tiny pond forage and tandem Colorado and Willow blades that flash brightly underwater and produce a nice amount of displacement. With 60 strands of Bio-Flex silicone in its skirt, it produces an action that fish cannot resist.
To ensure that every bite is a sure catch, a durable 2/0 Mustad Hook connected to a strong ball-bearing swivel is attached to its head with a 3D realistic eye. Get a Pond Magic in any of the 11 colors and let the magic be in any pond or stream you go to.
The Booyah Buzz Bait is well-balanced and rides the surface well whether in calm or windy conditions. The ‘clacker’ gives off vibrations and noise that increases the strike zone as it ‘calls’ out to the fish.
I have successfully caught both large bass and northerns with this bait. I believe this ‘clacker’ separates this buzz bait from all its competitors. My only suggestion to Booyah would be to ‘close’ the metal lead onto which one ties line.
Big northerns can inhale the whole bait and with their sharp teeth can cause ‘bite offs’. I purchased a spool of pliable wire and wound an inch or two of this wire around this area of the lure, creating a closed metal area.
I attach 6″ to 9″ steel leaders. The lure still works like a charm but with no bite offs. After catching a few big northerns (>30″) the lure may need a ‘tune-up’. Using needle-nosed pliars, I adjust the lure so that the blade wire is always parallel to the lower hook wire.
Needless to say, I have caught more fish and bigger fish since making this lure a must-cast bait on every trip out.
Big northern pike were in the area. I put on the (black) Booyah Buzz Bait w/clapper and it was no contest. Photos captured a 38″ beast and at least 6 others that broke the 30″ mark. The Booyah runs true and high in the water, rattles and clangs until the pike crunch it, and performs cast after cast.
My only alteration was using NO-LEAD wire (. 035 oz) to close off the metal tip of the bait. I use at least 6″ steel leaders and the closed tip really helps. Add a stinger hook if they are biting short and you have a surface bait that takes a back seat to no other.
A tip is to check the alignment of the horizontal metal bars of the lure. Along with the head, the metal bars must all be parallel. After a few big pike, these can get a bit skewed. A needle-nose pliar’s adjustment and it again runs true.
I have one plastic bait box filled with each color and size of this killer bait. Mr. Pike doesn’t have a chance.
Just caught a 40” pike on this guy. I almost never throw spinnerbaits but i decided to try and become more familiar with them and I ended up catching my PR pike. Do yourself a favor and get one already.
I was using the firetiger color on a lake in upstate NY, the water clarity was very clear and i was retrieving at a medium pace about a foot below the surface above weedy cover, water depth was approx.
5 feet. I am happy that the spinnerbait suffered no damage despite a rough fight. I am going to order more this bait is great. If you liked this review, please hit the “yes” button to encourage others to have more thorough reviews.
Designed as a trout attractor pattern, the Pistol Pete Renegade Size 10 Spinner Flies are highly effective baits for a range of fresh water fish including trout, salmon, steelhead, pike, bass, crappie and walleye, as well as many saltwater fish.
Use them with a fly rod, a spinning rod, or troll them behind a boat and watch as the fish come swarming to bite the bait. The fly features a tiny propeller on the front that causes an action and sound, when in water.
This gray-colored fly attracts fish towards it to strike, even if they are not in the feeding period. With the looks of a fly and action and sound like that of a lure, these spinner flies are just perfect.
Been fishing Pistol Petes for 20 plus years. They are dynamite. Have caught fish everywhere I’ve used them. Here’s the tip; tie a small swivel at the end of the leader and your tippet to that. Keeps your tippet from ‘spinning up’ when retrieving and will not effect your casting.
These are very effective for trout in lakes or slow streams. I prefer the ones with a feathery tail, as you can impart a realistic swimming motion by stripping the fly in. That combined with the flash from the blade makes for an enticing presentation.
Think of it as an improved wooly bugger. It works fine on fly rods and spinning gear.
The Panther Martin Spinners are a wonderful choice to use to attract your ideal fish. It features a unique design that is both concave and convex at the same time. With this feature, the blade spins like an off-center propeller around the shaft instead of trailing through water.
It then passes through the blade itself and this motion creates hydro sonic waves that in turn excite all game fish for a sudden strike. The Panther Martin lures are designed with vibrant color patterns that are proven to bring in fish more quickly.
The bright and colorful design of this product will quickly call to your desired fish and they are effective on many different species. With these fly spinners you will not spend all day waiting for a good catch.
They are 1/8 oz and the color is gold/yellow. The metallic gold is designed to reflect lights throughout the surface.
I’m hard pressed to find a freshwater species besides carp that won’t hit this spinner. Walleye, Pike, large mouth, small mouth, gar, even had perch go for it. It’s probably the most versatile lure in my tacklebox.
I bought this lure from the advice of my brother. It was more expensive than the rooster tails but i thought I’d give it a try. I went on a weekend canoe/fishing trip down the elk river with 5 other friends.
We had our canoes on the bank and everyone had a line in fishing from the bank before we shoved off. BOOM!! I get the first fish, then another, then another. I caught three before we even shoved off and the guys were jealous that I had caught 3 before we even left.
YES I think this is a great lure and will definatly it use again.
When big bass are crunching tiny shad, the Tiny Fluke should be your go-to imitator for matching the hatch. It s one of our pros favorite dropshot baits, but it ll do much more than that. You can split shot it, put it on a scrounger or even grab a handful for use on a castable umbrella rig.
This is the ultimate replica of a young-of-year baitfish.
I tried this fluke out and on the first day, I caught a small largemouth bass fishing it drop-shot style. Didn’t get any big ones but that had more to do with where I was fishing as well as the fact I only put in an hour or so there.
The next day I tried this lure out in saltwater, where it caught grass rockfish like a charm. Only issue is that all of these baits have an indent in one side. I think Zoom may have a defective mold in use.
Does not affect the action obviously but makes them hard to put on a jighead properly.
These came in a different color than I ordered. Ordered watermelon gold glitter and got a much darker green with glitter. Overall they attract the fish but they don’t last long. Longer than others but after a couple fish I have to replace it.
It’ll take a hit without ripping off most of the time but once they start to go that’s it.
Me and my friend use these constantly, they work so well! The first time I used them I would cast it out let it sink and then jerk every few seconds, on my first cast I was pleasantly surprised with 4 big bass following it! were talking 3 pounders!!! I use primarily the White Pearl color and my first time using them I caught 53 bass over 1lb!!!.
The Googan Squad Blooper Popper is a topwater popper that will crash and splash its way across the water’s surface to trigger explosive bites. Designed with a cupped mouth for maximum splash and “bloop” sounds, the Googan Squad Blooper Popper sings loudly on the surface to call fish in from a distance.
The belly of each Googan Squad Blooper Popper is also outfitted with a set of rumble strips, which increase drag and surface disturbance so that it stays in the strike zone for a longer period of time.
Perfect for all seasons, the Googan Squad Blooper Popper can be worked quickly with sharps snaps of the rod tip to resemble the action of fleeing baitfish being chased to the surface by predators. For a slower and more subtle approach, anglers can utilize short sweeps from the rod tip, allowing the bait to gently plop on the surface, which mimics feeding baitfish and an easy target for hungry bass.
Finished with a feathered treble hook on the rear for additional attraction, the Googan Squad Blooper Popper is one that you can’t ever leave the dock without. Googan SquadLengthWeightClassBlooper Popper2-3/4″3/8ozTopwaterUpgrade Your Treble Hooks!.
I must confess, I purchased a half dozen of these bad boys when they launched. The need to re-up hasn’t come around, yet. With that said, this bait calls in some fish! Superb walk the dog action. You can tell some time was spent dialing in the design.
My only complaints are the size, and hooks. Here in Florida, I couldn’t tell you how many 1lb largemouth have exploded on a 6″ spook. The hound certainly doesn’t discriminate catching small fish with its small profile.
It does fool the big ladies, but for a topwater plug I feel it should be larger. For a smaller topwater I suppose it makes sense to use lighter wire hooks. The ones from the first run I purchased had really light hooks and they bent easily, even on light rods, line, and drag.
Maybe this has changed since the launch? Most hard baits require treble hook upgrades anyway, and for the price point the hound still overs lots of value, and catches a ton of fish. #flobass.
I love top water fishing and I have tried a LOT of poppers. None are quite like this. Its sturdy, well designed, the rattle is amazing, its action is nice and bloopy, and (I can’t stress this next part enough) it catches fish.
This is the gold standard for me. I have bought it in every available color. It just works.
It catches fish for sure. Three the first time out with it. So for sure this dawg will hunt. Very easy to walk , it casts very well. It’s most definitely gonna be my go to top water walking bait. I probably want use any other again.
So if your looking to change things up. You should definitely try this hound out. You will not be let down. It was only a few squealer bass I hooked up on. More time on the lake it should put quality fish in the boat.
Tie one on and “match the hatch” by switching patterns in seconds with our EZexchange? feature. Dependable Trailing treble will securely hook and hold the short-striking fish! Size 8 is chosen as the standard for Trout and Panfish.
No other in-line offers these features. Size 10 has all the desired features of the size 8 but designed for smaller streams and waters with Native trout and Steelhead.
If you don’t catch any fish on this, then they’re not biting. I caught 10 fish; 9 rainbow and 1 yellow perch today within 90 minutes. A fisherman introduced it to me several weeks ago and he was catching trout like it was no tomorrow.
I’ve been catching more fish by using Joe’s flies.
The weightless design of this spinner allows for a subtle presentation that can be fished slowly unlike weighted spinners that run nose up and are designed to be retrieved quickly. This lure mimics a wounded or distressed minnow that flashes its side.
Works on high pressured fish when other baits do not.
I live in Arizona and have fished waters all across the state and i can say that nothing produces fish anywhere close to this lure. Any species of fish you can google that swims in AZ will bite this, EVEN CARP! **(This size does require light tackle)** Potomac coachman is the only color you will ever need, the larger styles of these are also very deadly! Would rate these over 5 stars if i could, BUY SOME!!.
