EFTTEX Awards 2012 - Best New Soft Lure

Eddystone Eel 2012

Eddystone Eel has been manufacturing record-breaking lures since 1973.

British boat caught bass, pollack, coalfish, cod – plus 10 World line class records have all fallen to Eddystone.

In 2010, Eddystone Eel launched a new model which in 2012 beat the British boat-caught record whiting of 7 lb 6oz.

The company adds: “Eddystone Eel could have sat back but we had already started to make tooling moulds for what we believe is going to be the Best New Soft Lure – Eddystone Eel 2012.”

Prototypes in 140mm size were made for the tests for shore and boat with two other sizes to be shown at the EFTTEX show. During our shore test it took an 11lb bass, 12lb cod, 3lb whiting and 5lb ballan wrasse.

On the boat test it lured a 19lb pollack and 20lb cod and out-fished all other lures aboard.

“Eddystone Eel have been making record-breaking lures for 39 years – we know the sizes, colours and the action needed for big fish.”
