Whether natural or not, it is indeed a popular colour with anglers all over the world. And on a recent weekend with YH, both of us unknowingly were fishing with Redheads with some measure of success - he with the new Storm Thunderblade lipless lure and yours truly with the old' faithful X-Rap in the new Redhead pattern.
Red tail, Redhead Storm Thunderblade and Red Zillion 50th Anniversary reel - matching ey?
This lipless baby is heavy enough to cast a mile, holds steady on blazing retrieve (cranked flat out on the 50th Anniversary Zillion that boasts a ratio of 7.3:1 without skipping on the surface) and gives tons of vibration. And did I mention the life-like eyes?
The X-Rap Redhead fared well with a juvie Toman as well
And of course, this baby also found the redhead lollipop of an X-Rap too enticing to resist
