The latest offering in kabura-style lures comes from noted Japanese tackle manufacturer Hyabusa, called the Free Slide.
This lure comes in two head colours (dark red and green-orange) and three weights (56, 75 and 140g). The Free Slide has already proven itself particularly effective on snapper and john dory, with trevally, kahawai, gurnard and kings also falling to its charms. Replacement skirts/hooks are available.
Distributed by RA Conaghan NZ Ltd, Auckland, and SR Marston and Co Ltd, Christchurch, and available through tackle stores nationwide. Visit www.fishingtackle.co.nz.
