The Maria Fla-Pen or Flap Pencil is quality lure that the Lure Fishing for Bass team overlooked at first, but it’s proven to be a great lure.

I have recently taken the lure out for a good testing on my last few fishing trips and it has really stood up to what I have thrown at it. On a recent trip to one of my local beaches it was the only thing I could raise a fish on and after over 20 bass on it I knew this was a winner.

It has a tremendous wobble action achieved by the small flap at the back of the lure. There are a couple of choices when going for this lure either the 65mm or 85mm both are slow sinking lures that fish just below the surface on a steady retrieve.

Put the flap forward for casting then the flap flips back once you start winding and creates fish tail like disturbance.
