A recent comment left on the Trout University's Top 5 Artificial Trout Lures suggested that the Super Duper Lure by should be on the Top 5 list. It was first recommended to me in 1989 by an old time fisherman that I found fishing in Deep Creek near Bryson City, NC. After his prompting, I decided to try it in Slickrock Creek in Western NC, a stream known for browns. So I purchased a few of them relatively cheaply and made the long hike into Slickrock Creek.
I choose to take the southern route to Slickrock Creek which necessitates a hike along a narrow ledge about 8 or 10 feet above the water. As I was inching my way over the ledge, my backpack lurched to the right nearly causing me to take a nasty fall. In the process of saving myself from the fall I wrenched my knee causing a severe injury. So I may not have given the Super Duper a fair trial, but, it did not live up to my expectations, so I declined to list it as a Top 5.
Here is what I have found about the Super Duper. The simple, but effective, U-shape design of the Super Duper creates an incredible wobbling action that draws strikes from trout in a variety of water conditions. The unique shape also makes it extremely castable. Corrosion-resistant finishes ensure these lures will maintain their rightful place in the top trays of your tackle box year after year. It is available in 1/12, 1/10 and 1/16 oz. weights and a variety of colors. Super Duper lures are available at Cabela's and Bass Pro Shop as well as other outfitters.
