Yo-zuri sidewinder

Post by Chop » Sun Sep 09, 2007 10:07 pm

I found this gem all alone in a store last week, hiding down the bottom of shelf.
Quite old, ive thrown the packet now but had really old yo-zuri logo's and the paper/cardboard was faded badly.

Have given it a good swim and as the name states it sidewinds alright! whilst rolling and showing its belly droolsmilie
Got alot of attention and lost a nice fish when the hooks pulled.

It was a slow sinker, until i changed the trebles down two sizes now it suspends thumbsupsmilie

I'll never work fish out!

I try to find the most natural looking lures I can, and "match the hatch" yet these smart lil critters that we have to try and OUTsmart, readily take something that looks like a circa 70's surfboard!

Bout 80-90mm long with flashy colours and a hard action?..............Salmon I take it?

Fair nuff! At that time I opt for dark colours for the silhouette.

I hear a few are gettin pulled down your way at the moment, and suprisingly, they're quiet up my end. I'd expect some BIG fish to be on the move here in the next few weeks though going on last years performance.
