Have a look on here Noodle: http://bikinibaitcompany.com/TurmoilXPatterns.htm
As far as expensive lures go, mine top out about 25-30, they do what I need them to, and even occasionally catch fish lol!

nah, not sure what it said on the packet, its just a white, hard plastic, non descript fish with a joint in the middle. its got a nice wobble to it tho, especialy against the flow on a river. i dont do much lure fishing to be honest i just keep a couple of cheap ones in my box just incase, i plan on getting some decent kit for it and giving it a proper go in the new year tho

if you get any of the soft plastics they work far better when modified a bit as the tail action is crap ive just thrown some other paddle tails and grub tails on them and they work far better

Aaah, but, is that down to the angler rather than a poor lure design Question , Ive had all my salmo's since they first came out a few years now, I still use the original slider,its been bitten to pieces,hit onto rocks,dredged weed,pulled in logs, and even an oven grill tray, and is still going strong, had to change the hooks a few times,but as far as that, its my best lure. Wink
The only one, I dislike immensly,and thats mainly down to the fact its more of a trawling lure rather than a casting lure, is the salmo skinner, casts like a fookin leafy branch.
Cheers

cant say they were hard to use unlike some of the rise/fall type baits i can think of they just didnt inspire me so you are probably right it was me not the lures.

ive one left the sinking jack crank they do

oddly though i love the smaller ul size lures they do


less said about the skinner the better a friend brought hes out to get laughed at a couple of weeks back

They look well John, very similar to river run mantas with a better paint job, did you get the ones Tim Kelly was selling scratch

I am still a big fan of Jack Cobbs and Loz harrop jerkbiats but there like rocking horse s**t to get hold of, lucky I bought a few before they jacked in Twisted Evil

Loz Harrop lures. Now there's a con if I've ever seen one. He's even producing a 'limited edition' stock because he's skint....awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww....maybe if he didn't over-charge for some very average, basic, glide-baits, he might not have to con more gullible lure anglers into parting with stupid amounts of cash for bits of skirting board. If he had sold his 'works of art' for a few pounds less, he might have sold twice as many and if you read his site recently, you'd think he was begging for sympathy. I've got no sympathy for anyone who over-charges for anything.
He's also updated his site to extend his 'limited edition' lures. How is something limited edition if you produce more?? I'm sure the people who bought his last run of 'limited edition' lures will be thrilled.
Even more annoying is the people who buy his lures and then sell them on at even more inflated prices....like WTF? Are people so gullible that they believe his lures at that good? They won't help you catch fish if you aren't much crack at lure fishing. You can however catch plenty of fish on 3 quid lures if you know how to use them properly.

Salmo Slider....7 quid with free delivery and lasts forever.

Loz Harrop lures....22 quid with 2 quid delivery for the first lure and an additional 1 quid for every lure after.
