One of the first SALMO lures, now well-proven in innumerable fisheries for many species at all latitudes, the calm, wobbling action of the BUTCHER has lured plenty of trophy fish already! Before you decide to put this lure on, you had better adjust the drag on your reel!
The BUTCHER is available in one size and in floating, sinking and Super Deep Runner versions.
Trout, pike, perch, bass.
Typical fishery, season and method of use:
Large trout river; late spring; casting across the flow.
How to fish:
The floating version is best cast downstream then retrieved slowly and steadily against the flow; remember to pause the lure for a few seconds near fish-holding features to trigger strikes. The sinking version can also be fished upstream, just retrieve the lure at mid-depth as slowly as possible with a few short, soft twitches; the SDR is also suitable for upstream and downstream retrieves. When fishing in lakes or slow-flowing rivers with the SDR version you should sweep the rod tip around to dive the lure down to your required depth then retrieve it quite quickly and erratically.

once to become convinced of how special they are. They really are not just more imitations made to satisfy the whims of collector-anglers - these lures are unique for several reasons. There is no other lure manufacturer in the world who, as well as drawing upon his skill and fishing passion, has invested in professional knowledge of fish biology. SALMO lures therefore have built-in secrets – a powerful combination coming from the knowledge and experience of designers (graduate fish biologists) and the demanding SALMO field testers in Europe and overseas. The magic of these secrets is confirmed every day by the messages of thanks coming in from many countries accompanied by pictures of trophy fish caught on our lures and stories about fantastic fishing adventures.
