Why the name? We've rescued dachshunds over the years and we named the company in honor of them. Brutus was our first rescue and our logo is a drawing of him.
We started making flies for ourselves because we weren’t happy with the products available on store shelves. We decided to make our own premium, hand-tied trolling flies with the highest-quality components and our strict craftsmanship standards.
Big Weenie Brand brings you top-notch trolling flies and bait rigs using Owner hooks, that won’t bend, break, or crush when the big Kings strike. Fish hook up and stay hooked up.
Cut-Bait Rigs in True UV Impregnated Colors (pearl illusion, uv silver flake, chartreuse, green, blue, etc.) and our exclusive XXXtreme Glow. Made in the USA. We use an Owner® hook on our ready to fish cutbait rigs that roll true right out of the package. No tweaking, bending, or hook replacement needed. These paired with our 10" Weiner Attractors make a deadly combination.
Big Weenie Brand Whole-Bait Rigs. Same durable components as our cut-bait rigs. These heads hold whole bait (alewives, herring, smelt, etc.). They are easy to use and come with everything you need in the package with instructions. You can run our Bait Rigs all day, but when the bite slows around 10 a.m. on a nice sunny day, these keep taking the big ones. We have made believers out of those during a mid-day trip enjoying the ride and still banging fish!
