In France, 1939, Andre Meulnart invented the Mepps spinner - an acronym of "Manufacturier d'Engins de Precision pour Peches Sportives", or "Precision Equipment for Sport Fishing". In the 1950's, the spinner was given to Todd Sheldon (then owner/operator of Sheldon's Sport Shop in Antigo, Wisconsin) by a WWII veteran who'd discovered it during his time in Europe. Sheldon was sceptical of the lure at first, but found himself out of other options during a particularly challenging fishing trip on Wisconsin's Wolf River. He cast it out, and landed four 12lb+ trout within two hours! Just 4 years later, Mepps spinner sales in the USA had topped 500,000.
Sheldon's son, Mike, has since taken over the business from his late father. They now manufacture over 4000 varieties of spinners and spoons, all from their 50,000 sq ft plant in Antigo, WI.
