Unweighted Gilling Lures
Felmea Eels: This is another bait that has been around for more than half a century. Designed by Jerry Cleland in the US, owner of the infamous Felmlea bait company. These eels are around 10" long and perform like the real thing in the water, can be rigged in numerous ways and I have seen these used for everything from pollock over deep water wrecks to bass in estuaries, catfish in the Rio Ebro and perch in our own reservoirs. These are extremely good eel imitations and therefore extremely good fish catchers.
Sovereign Super Holographic Eels: These are a great lure for using on a jighead or on a flying collar. They are very useful to your armoury whether bass fishing in the surf or fishing on some of the deep water wrecks over 200' down. With the holographic foil inside they maximise on all light conditions, reflecting and refracting in the dullest of weather. Great fish catchers!
Red Gill’s: This is one of the oldest soft baits on the planet. It was originally conceived in the late 1950's by Alex Ingram in his back shed perched on a side of a cliff in Mevagissey. For many years the 115mm / 4 1/2" size held the UK bass record. Today almost 70 years later this lure is still in the forefront of wreck and bass fishing, indeed it spawned the term "GILLING" which is obviously short for "RED GILLING". Nobody knows just how many bass, pollock and cod this lure has caught over the years but it is without doubt runs into many many millions.
You cannot go wreck fishing without these lures!
Sovereign Ragou: 11cm / 4 1/2” artificial sand eel is a very inexpensive but very productive small lure. It is one of very few lures available in the UK in a "tiger" pattern. The "tiger" pattern being exceptionally productive over mid channel wrecks as they "probably" look like Pout fry which are of course numerous over the wrecks, especially those laying on sandy or muddy ground which pretty much covers 99% of the wartime wrecks in the Channel.
