SOFT LURES FOR ALL

Originally, soft lures imitated the predators’ prey. Their flexibility gave them an undulating movement that minnows just couldn’t do. The Comma was the first real soft lure: it needs a weighted head and is brought to life by the angler's dexterity.

SOFT FRESHWATER LURES

The Shad is the most common type, used because it most closely resembles a fish.

Biga and Natori lures
The Finesse has a thin tail which is sensitive to the slightest vertical motion for your fishing finesse ;)

Yubari
The famous Comma produces a lot of vibration through its tail movement. It’s a perfect beginner’s lure because it does all the work!

Toolik Red Head
The worm is used mainly for black bass and has a slow movement.

The craw is quite a mouthful of bait, be careful not to fit it backwards! Crayfish flee from predators backwards, protecting themselves with their pincers

Craw
# Caperlan tip: Take the time to observe the prey of the species of fish you’re after. Then use an imitation, it will always work if the predator is aggressive.
The Frog is used without weights in order to imitate the floating or slow submersion of an amphibian.

Frog
The Creature doesn’t resemble any known prey. Its attractiveness is due to its many appendices, which create a lot of turbulence.
