New Eumer Spin Tube gets the vote from EFTTEX visitors
“Retailers and wholesalers visiting EFTTEX showed that they are looking for new and innovative products for the industry.”
That was the reaction of Eumer Finland Oy Export Director Olli Ojamo after his company picked up the Visitor’s Choice Award in the EFTTEX Best New Products Awards for its Pike Spin Tube.
He added: “We are very happy to receive this prize and we know that it was a good idea to invest in product development. We will now carry on investing in the creation of new products.
“We are pleased that many years of development and testing has been recognised. It is particularly rewarding that the accolade was voted for by the fishing industry overall – the people visiting the show.”
Eumer describes The Pike as “a new fishing experience”. Slow sinking and easy casting, it is irresistible to pike. It is easy to fish slowly, a movement that is essential when the water is cold or the fish are passive. It is also effective in shallower waters and can be used all year round.
There are several techniques for using The Pike. When a fish takes the fly, the tube is designed to slide along the leader thus preventing damage to the fly. A steel wire is used with The Pike and any hook can be used with it, single, double or treble. The steel wire, called Predator Wire 6/0, has been developed especially for The Pike, adds Eumer.
Other advantages, say Eumer, are that you can cast The Pike with any spinning tackle; it works in all waters and seasons and with any retrieval speed or technique. Kits are also available to make your own tubes.
