This lure is a true virtuoso in a big family of lures all designed for large predators. Left and right, left and right: the Slider’s sinuous dance that leads predators to crimes of passion! A lust to murder, a volcano of aggression. Foaming sprays of water and the scream of reel brakes, that’s what awaits you: anytime soon. Crush down the barbs from your trebles to make unhooking easier. Take a deep breath and prepare yourself for a lot of action!
Usually the Slider is fished with a regular series of rod strokes while retrieving the quickly, the rod strokes should be quite energetic and fast. Before fishing proper you should always make a few casts and practise retrieves in clear water to watch the Slider’s behaviour and get your timing right, when you do the Slider will turn acutely from side to side, each turn at a right angle to the direction of retrieve. Do not allow slack line to form after each jerk, for one thing it is important to have a tight line so you can set the hook when you have a take but also the sharp turns of the Slider can take it back over the line and may tangle if it is not properly controlled.
