Owner of Leland's LuresJeff Smith is the owner of Leland’s Lures and Sore Lip’em All Guide Service. Jeff started with one lure, the Trout Magnet. Now Leland’s Lures carries many products for trout and crappie enthusiasts. Leland’s Lures products are sold all across the country and regionally through Wal-Mart, Bass Pro, Dick’s Sporting Goods and many other retail stores. The Trout Magnet was named by Field and Stream Magazine as one of the top 30 lures of all time. Jeff has been featured in numerous TV shows and magazine articles. As the Trout Magnet was blessed with growth and popularity, requests were received from all over the world to fish the Trout Magnet on its home waters (the Little Red River). As a result, the Sore Lip’Em All Guide Service was created to provide guided trout fishing trips using the Trout Magnet. Even though Jeff now spends most of his time in the office or promoting the Leland’s Lures products, you will still find him on the water providing Sore Lip’Em All clients a trip to remember.
