As a self confessed lure addict, I can't help but be drawn to quality lures. I have a few lures already from Loz Harrop Lures and can say the finish, action and service has been absolutely superb. I recently purchased a Time Bomb and a newly developed lure from Carl at Loz Harrop Lures. There was a large, pre painted selection to choose from and the lures were delivered very quickly and well packed. I like how the splits rings and hooks come separately. A nice touch because I often replace rings to recover my lures. I had two hard day sessions with them on two completely different waters and I can honestly say they are fantastic. I will break down each individually. The Time Bomb worked amazing. I am not normally a fan of surface lures because of the poor hook up rate and the ensuing frustration that results! However, with the exposed hooks, this worked superb over a huge weed bed on one of the waters. In terms of casting, the time bomb took off like a rocket. As with any heavy lure, a properly set up reel saw these flying and landing with precision. I had around 2-10 inches of water to fish in with 1-2m of weed underneath. Occasionally the Time Bomb collected weeded (with the initially entry into the water) but this usually cleared with a quick pull on the rod. This often lead to a skipping action across the water, great for attracting the attention of hungry predators! The action was superb. Winding, serpent like at the surface. You would be mistaken for thinking this was a rubber lure. Quarter, half and full turns of the reel saw the lure paint it's own beautiful pattern on the water's surface. I had chosen a Time Bomb with a bright, red head and it was easily followed in the bright sunlight. This made me think, with other companies offering rubber alternatives, why would you spend £20 buying a lure with a limited life when you can have a quality, hard wearing and equally versatile lure that you can even have custom painted? No brainer really! I was equally impressed with the unnamed lure (referred to this as UL from now on). I chose a blue/black tiger marked pattern with reddy/orangey chest. There were a number to choose from but this really stood out for me as strikingly beautiful. Again, with the set up being balanced, I was able to cast huge distances with UL. The action was remarkable with a tighter, straighter motion and the slow sink was ideal for selecting my depths. The first day saw us fishing a huge salmon river with depths ranging to 60 feet, though we never quite fished that deep! One jerk of the handle saw the lure change direction with poise. On straight retrieve the sweeping, swerving action looked superb and very appealing. When I choose a lure I usually run with it for a good twenty minutes, half an hour. Almost till I exhaust my confidence in it. However I found myself using this lure to search the depths for a good few hours! I did have a number of follows using this, however with uncharacteristically hot weather in Scotland, alas the pike refused to bite. Suffice to say I was very impressed with both lures and the service overall. I spend my spare time vlogging and passing on tips to others. Usually helping them get the best out of their current set ups/lures and occasionally helping correct known faults/failures from the manufacturer. I would honestly recommend Loz Harrop Lures to those looking for that something special to add to their collections. With a choice of colours, even custom colours, and a quality, longlife product. You simply can't lose.

I finally managed my first pike session in a few months. The nature reserve I chose looked perfect yet still I blanked. On the way home I dropped on to a section of canal for a 15 minute blast with my new Loz Harrop lure. 3rd cast in and and I miss a take. 10 minutes later and a little jack nailed it. After spending most of the day with no sign of any fish this lure really pulled it out the bag for me. Definitely a lure to keep on me at all times. Looks great, great movement in the water and most of all catches. I can’t wait to get a big old girl on this now

the middle darter is far becoming my fav in both standard size and lite version. a couple of recent fish on them the action is great on them not a sharp zig zag like some jerks these are more of a sweeping glide

Don’t tell Loz but your finish is way better than his, even when he started using epoxy or some-such.    Action-wise, I can’t tell the difference, certainly nothing that can’t be dealt with by changing split rings, hook pattern etc.   

 

I don’t expect any lure to last for ever, particularly if they’re made of wood, but so far yours cannot be faulted.   One of the Darters I got from you at the Lure Fair has caught well over fifty fish and, aside from the inevitable grazes from teeth and hook rash, it’s as good as new.  To my mind you can’t ask for more than that.
