The UK's largest dedicated lure fishing website
N.B. Salmo have discontinued many of the above colours. We only have colours in stock as listed below.
Salmo Hornet: Another truly outstanding lure from the Salmo range. On a well balanced Ultralite outfit these lures will cast up to 30 yards and will take just about any predatory fish. We have had specimen Chub, Perch and Pike. However where these lures truly excel is the Salmon and Trout family. They are light enough to be cast on a fly rod should you wish but used normally on light spinning gear we’ve taken Brown, Sea Trout, Grayling and Salmon, all on the same day from the same river. Needless to say when the reservoirs open their doors to any method in the Autumn these lures are a must.
Items on this page:
Salmo Rattlin Hornet: The Rattling hornet arrived in 2017, the newest in a long line of baits from Polish maker SALMO.
We have it in the colours below, some now already out of production.
It is a floater, it weighs in at just 6g - 3/16th oz making it officially an ultralite, it's 4.5cm - 1 3/4" in length & will dive to around 6'/1.8m on the crank & 11' 6"/3.4m on the troll.
Please note:-trolling depth will vary depending on line thickness, speed of boat & amount of line paid out, all lures will troll deeper than factory specs if either run faster, on a longer line or a thinner line or a combination of all three.
Salmo Hornet, 6cm: These are the larger 6cm size of the infamous Salmo hornet, They run deeper, cast further & attract bigger fish !
They weigh in at 10g/3/8oz & cast very accurately & all are floating.
This model will run down to about 2m/6' 6" on the crank & 5.6/18' on the troll.
Salmo Rattlin Hornet: The Salmo Rattlin Hornet is a floating lure 6.5cm/2 1/2" in length excluding the diving bill, it weighs 20g/3/4oz.
It will dive to 2m/6'-6" on the crank & 5m/16' on the troll, but all diving lures can be made to go deeper than manufactures specs as many things can affect the trolling depth, speed, line diameter & amount of line paid out.
They are equipped with 4 steel beads in a closed chamber to impart the rattle, they also have a "casting slug" on curved wire to aide accurate casting.
This slug slides to the tail for casting & returns to the belly for retrieving to add stability &improve the action.
