here`s the most popular color over here, flame red with black top. Works particularly well when they are after invertebrates s.a. rugworm, shrimp or crab. http://haar-jig.de/xtcommerce/popup_image.php?pID=452&imgID=0
This is a candy fluo-blue mix over (polished mold) tin. An inline design, casted onto thick wire which is later pulled and replaced with a same diameter thin fly tubing inlay. I just burn the ends so they bulp up, no glue needed. They work better on a thin leader, even rotate on the fall like a Zzinger so I feel the need to smoothen the ends and prevent wear. http://haar-jig.de/xtcommerce/images/categories/90.JPG
They work both ways, though the "right" way seems bnetter for straight retrieve while the "wrong" way helbs with the rotating fall and rotation in general. Thats the main reason for the swivel btw., better rotation on a hanging stop. The picture is outdated, I use the inlines with sewash crimped on a swivel, too, for this very reason.
Just decided that for larger patterns I will put the swivel on the tail end. That way the lure can be used with a single hook there or alternatively with an assist hook setup above the swivel.
I`ve done a lot of testing with this lure, it catches fish where you least expect it. Just had a substatial follow up order from a guy who claimed several giant trevally on seychelles with the 3/4 cavity tin model. Not sure if he got the species right and actually got GIANT trevally but he was very enthusiastic about them.
