Caught this beautiful Brown in Provo Canyon, Utah. Heavily pressured, these fish are slow to bite but they slammed this Gold Black and Red Deluxe Panther Martin! She hit on the third cast into the rapids and fought like a champ!

The salmon run started off slow this year. I was trolling the ocean, the estuary and trying from the river banks. Finally I tied on my Panther Martin and BAM!!! The fight was on! Gotta love those Panther Martin's, they keep the fish on!

Caught this brown on the second to last day of the season here in Wisconsin. He slammed my go to Panther, the Brass Body, Deluxe Gold Fly spinner. Nothing can resist this spinner! I will never use anything else to fish trout, EVER!

Panther Martin's strike again! My friend and I caught 3 steelhead & 3 king salmon while fishing in western Washington. We tried many patterns but the red/orange holographic was the key for steelhead! Triggering many aggressive strikes and memorable battle

This 16 inch native rainbow was one of many caught by my 12-year-old son, Sean, on a back backing trip with me to a wild Nor Cal river canyon. We crimp down the barbs on our hooks and use needlenose pliers when necessary to ensure unharmed releases.
