Dear Lyman Lure Company,
My son and I would like to thank you for the special Lyman lures we used recently on a trip to Pyramid Lake in Nevada. I have fished the February President’s Day Tournament at Pyramid Lake for 12 years running and for the last 3 years I have taken my son along with me. A good friend Wayne Miller taught me how to fish the lake and it was Wayne who introduced me to the Lyman lure, which he held in high regard as a secret weapon on the Lake. Wayne had fished this tournament for the better part of three decades. Over the years the Lyman lures have caught fish even when the bite was not supposedly on. We could set at the bar at Crosby’s lodge and silently laugh at all the people who were complaining about not catching anything after having landed 20 or more fish that same day. We have always been able to throw a Fire Tiger or Shad looking Lyman at them and are assured of catching fish.
This year after visiting your website to restock my tackle box I tried something different, we increased the size of our lures (because the fish are getting bigger under the lake’s new hook rules) and I tried out a suggestion from the Lyman website for tying two Lyman’s together. It is a pretty neat strategy, which produced fish immediately and it enabled my son to out-fish me with this 8 lb 6oz keeper. I had some of the biggest hits I have ever had on this lake trolling the two Lyman lures in tandem. I am not going to give up any special combinations of lures, except to say what you have on your website about your lures on Pyramid Lake, works. The only thing I will add is to say that the front lure is not just a teaser. It should have a hook on it and I have a couple of chewed up lures to prove they hit the front one as well as the trail lure.
