All others are just posers.

Weight: 1/4 oz. or 3/4 oz.
Zara Spooks are designed to allow you to control the lure’s action. This is done with a slack-line twitch of the rod tip that creates the left-right, “Walk the Dog” action for which these lures are famous. It just takes a little practice… it’s best if you start slowly. Once you’ve obtained the zig-zag action then you can increase the speed. These lures have a reputation of drawing fish from as far away as 20 feet and the strikes are vicious. Be sure to allow the line to tighten up before setting the hook.
Fishing History Is Made Here
In the late 1890s James Heddon launched a hand-made lure into a Dowagiac, Mich., pond and the ripples are still expanding. It marked the beginning of a new era – the artificial-lure fishing era – for all anglers. Established in 1898, Heddon Lures is the oldest lure company still producing quality fishing products. Heddon is the manufacturer of legendary lures, including the Spook, Torpedo, Lucky 13 and many more, and these lures follow the same innovative vision James Heddon captured more than 100 years ago. Bass, redfish, trout, pike… make some fishing history with Heddon Lures.
