All Sidewinder soft baits are made from a special latex mix which gives the perfect amount of movement to mimic real live baits, nether too soft, nor too stiff. Since these lures have been released they have probably out fished all other Bass, Cod (Best 43lb 9oz), and Pollack lures, winning
Total Sea Fishing product of the year 2011.

Sidewinders have been developed in conjunction with commercial line fisherman working out of Dartmouth, South Devon. All Sidewinder lures are extensively tested by experts and only the best results will qualify them to be included under this brand.

Sidewinder Lures have gone from strength to strength and are now recognised as one of the leading ranges of soft baits available.

All Sidewinders are made from their exclusive latex mix that guarantees the best possible live action. It is neither too soft, nor too stiff and will ensure the best catch rates every time you fish!

Every drop produced huge cod or coalfish"
