Deimai i have never fished the Kilroys yet so i was wondering whats to stop the lure from rotating around your fishing line is it just water pressure or what

@ laz

Never fished such lures either , but I suppose , that they should have a built-in balance not to rotate ????

But if the diving bill is not 100% angular , it might happen , I guess ?

They seem to have a flat plane on their bellies , maybe one could stick some of those "Storm" suspendots onto these to provide a little keel weight ?

Such weights can also be easily homemade ,..... by sticking some clean roofing lead sheet(bare of any corrosion ,- or old paint layers) onto one side of double-sided carpet tape .

Leaving the second protective foil on that taped lead sheet , you can always cut out the sizes needed with scissors , peel off the foil and stick'em onto your lures .

Laz,
If I can find mine in time I'll swim it down the river with Mully at the end of the week and get some footage. I'm pretty sure Mully wants to get footage of a heap of different lures thumbsupsmilie

The other thing to think about with these is the fact that they are basically being "pushed" through the water from the rear just the same as Tassy Devil style lures. I can't see em spinning if swum at the correct speed for the lure if that all makes sense.

I've used a few of the Kilroys in the past and never had any trouble with them spinning in the water.I'd say that they have some ballast in the belly of the lure to prevent this.They were good on the trout as Frank mentioned.Caught censored loads of Rainbows in the Cudgegong on them.

Baz is right. They don't spin at normal retrieve or troll rates. And they are a good lure.

Here's a page out of my Norwegian Lures Catalogue which was distributed by E.J. Todd & Son Imports to promote lures made by Solvkroken. Hope it helps with your quest for info about these lures.
