Salmo Pop is a simple but effective popper. Classic shape, critical mass and ideal balance make this lure easy to cast, every time. Add the casting ability to the superb action and you have a faultless topwater bait. Pop is offered in one size – 6cm.
How to Fish:
There are several ways of fishing with poppers – you have to adjust your technique according to the level of fish response. When fish are taking well it is a good tactic to retrieve the Salmo Pop fast at a constant speed although the Pop makes relatively little disturbance used like this. Alternatively with a series of twitches the Pop will make fish-attracting “plopping” noises and leave a trail of bubbles in its wake. After each twitch allow the Salmo Pop to rest for as much as a couple of seconds before tightening up and “popping” it again. When fish are lazy it is a good idea to try making a series of “jumps” with the Salmo Pop, each jump should be 0.3 – 0.5m long, make two or three jumps then allow the lure to rest on the surface for 3 – 4 seconds before repeating the jumps. Most often it will be some combination of these 3 techniques that will bring the best results.
Rover is a mix of stickbait and popper. With the skilful merging of those two types of lures, we achieved a construction with excellent aerodynamic values and a unique action. Add all that to a built- in rattle and you have one heck of a topwater bait. Lure is offered in one size – 7cm.
How to Fish:
The Rover is a versatile surface lure designed to be used with all standard surface fishing techniques. “Walking-the dog” with the Rover is easier than ever with gentle rhythmic strokes of the rod tip.
It is also easy to use as a popper and sometimes great results can be enjoyed by simply retrieving it straight across the surface at a constant fast speed. However, you should find that combining all these 3 techniques would provide the best results. In lakes the Rover is used for fishing between patches of reeds and over shallow areas with submerged vegetation. After casting we wait a few seconds before retrieving with any of the various techniques and every couple of metres we pause and leave the lure floating motionless for a few seconds. The Rover is an excellent lure for asp, both in rivers and lakes, the best places in rivers is in slacks where the flow is very slow or stationary. Whatever you do be sure to make the most of this lure’s versatility, experiment to find the best blend of techniques to suit the conditions.
