More info

Usually the Hester Slider is fished with a regular series of rod strokes while retrieving the quickly, the rod strokes should be quite energetic and fast. Before fishing proper you should always make a few casts and practise retrieves in clear water to watch the Hester Slider behaviour and get your timing right, when you do the Hester Slider will turn acutely from side to side, each turn at a right angle to the direction of retrieve. Do not allow slack line to form after each jerk, for one thing it is important to have a tight line so you clider works so well that many different styles of retrieve will work under different conditions. Whatever style you choose and find effective you should concentrate to make sure you maintain that style, so you must be aware of your Hester Slider behaviour at all times. The style of retrieve pattern that you choose is very important, for instance when water temperatures are very low (2 C to  5C) the best results will be achieved by fishing slowly, with pauses of up to 3 seconds long between jerks, and those jerks should be gentle. The sinking Hester Slider is obviously the right tool for this style, there is subtle movement from the lure as it sinks which is an additional attractor for predators. When water temperatures are higher then the retrieve speed should be increased. The Salmo Slider is surprisingly good for shallow trolling, let it out between 10 and 30m behind the boat and jerk it just as you would when casting, every couple of seconds.

120mm 70g Sinking - Dives to 1.5m (casting) 1.5m (trolling 5m)an set the hook when you have a take but also the sharp turns of the Hester Slider can take it back over the line and may tangle if it is not properly controlled
