Multi-Jointed Fishing Lures
 
A review of the new range of fishing lures from Fishing Addict
Lure fishing is growing in popularity recently and is a part of the sport that I have always loved. Recently I have been using lures for Trout and have to say what a fantastic way to catch them. I know that many out there still believe that fly fishing is the true way of catching trout, but with many of the fisheries now allowing any method fishing then I recommend that you give lure fishing for trout a go.
I recently got hold of a couple of the new lures from Fishing Addict range and thought that I knew the ideal venue to give these lures a go [an Essex trout reservoir]
In order to give the Fishing Addict lures a good test, I took a small Fry Lure [pictured] and a larger version. On first sight the Fry Lure is one of the prettiest I have ever seen, it is a tiny representation of a small Roach. In fact these multi-jointed lures look remarkably like the fish they are trying to
imitate. Unlike conventional plugs these lures do not have a lip vane to set the depth of them in the water, instead they are slow sinking lures. This was another reason why I expected them to work well in a reservoir where the depths vary hugely and on a bright day getting a lure down to where the fish are can make the difference.
In order to give these lures a fair evaluation; I agreed with a fishing mate that he would fish using other lures (Rappala etc) while I would concentrate on using the Fishing Addict ones. There is always a mixture of excitement and concern when using a new lure. This was amplified by the fact that when I last fished this water a couple of months ago, there was one lure that completely out fished anything else a red and gold Rappala. As I would not have access to this lure (my friend having declared that he was using it from the off) I had to put my faith

in a new brand.
As we are in one of the boats, we decided that we would try to skirt around some of the shallow areas to begin with, staying quite close to the banks in the hope of getting a Perch or Pike to start the day off, before heading out to the better known trout spots. The setup was straight forward, I was using a Shakespeare Ugly Stick 8 foot spinning rod, fixed spool reel loaded with 15lb braid and a wire hook trace straight to the lure.
The Fishing Addict lures cast very well, there is enough weight (certainly in the larger one to get a decent distance) and with a slow sinking action I was able to fish these into the roots and overhanging trees that look very fishy.
The fishing started slow with neither of us getting a take, I thought I had a couple of knocks but with the bottom having quite a bit of weed growth it was most probably just that. We moved the boat onto
the dam wall area and begin targeting the Trout. Almost immediately I had a follow on the small Fry lure, right up to the boat but it would not take it. Still the multi-jointed action did look very good in the water. Just while Im telling my mate that this lure is getting some interest, bang he is in on Red and White Rappala lure, landing a nice 2lb Rainbow.
We continue moving around the dam wall and all seems quite, I have moved to the larger lure now as I want to a larger lure deeper . It works, on a slow retrieve back to the boat the take is vicious and with the braid you feel every shake of the head. Turns out it is nice Pike of around 5lb. Im delighted with the result.
We continue fishing throughout the rest of the day and while sport was not red hot (unlike the weather) we continue to the catch. It is a mixed bag overall with a few Trout (sadly we lost four who managed to slip the hooks one of the joys of fishing braid), three Pike and Perch which came from the last cast of the Fry lure right next to the pumping station.
Overall a great day. The Fishing Addict lures worked really well and competed with the range of lures my friend was working through. These definitely have a place in my lure box from now on.
