I bought a load of these...

Wood Rectangle Font Paint Art

I got them from GAC but I would prefer not to ever give them any more of my money. Fisheagle do something similar but are probably really rubbish.

So, does your local tackle shop have any, or do you have a shed load you don't want?
Many thanks for relevant replies!

They look like pretty cheap quality lures, what sort of price do you pay for them ?
They are a similar shape to the extremely popular Halco twisty which are one of the best fish catching metal lures Ive used.

About a pound or two each, I remove and replace the swivel and hook and add a split ring as they are cheap rubbish. I've had pollock up to 8lb on them as well as codling and mackerel etc. Excellent lures but I am running out of them.

Just looked at them, they are more like a wedge, these are flattened on the upper end, one side longer than the other.
I have people use the halco twisty that I take fishing and haven't fished before as the action they create is so lively they turn even the sleepiest of species on. They will catch any of the beach species right up to tuna and marlin from the boat. They work well as a drop and jig lure too but I tend to just use them mostly from the shore and like I mentioned for anglers who don't really know how to fish.
They are a bit pricey though compared to many other lures, which is why I mostly use them with other people, while I persevere with cheaper metals, which makes them look good if they out-fish me!!!!
