Hard Lures Cardiff Chibitoro
“Chibi’ means in Japanese very small or ‘cute’. The chibitoro is the smaller version of the jointed Fuwatoro series and is perfect for down-sizing when the trout are very picky. The Chibitoro has a very compact body which also is comparable to the trout pellets where farmed trout are usually fed with. The recommended action is ultra-slow retrieve or even just cast and wait until the fish take the bait from the surface (like ‘dry fly’ flyfishing). This lure can really make the difference on highly preasured fishing ponds.
• A smaller 25mm version of the Fuwatoro 35F
• Jointed crankbait design for ultra slow retrieve
• Enticing wobbling body action even at the slowest speeds
• Large front lip for extra splash when twitched
• Floating - diving depth 0.5m
