The 1973 Record breaker Eddystone Eel

This is the daddy of them all the artificial lure that has taken 5 British record fish, Cod, Pollock, Bass, Coalfish and now in February this year 2012 a 7lb 6oz Whiting fell to an orange Eddystone eel.

It also holds a claim to fame taking 10 line class caught world records. The eel comes in a range of sizes and colours with the size 3 190mm being the eel that is the record breaker. See just how realistic this eel is and it’s loaded with super sharp hooks to get you firmly attached to the fish you’re after. The colours we currently stock are the two most popular and high catching designs, red and black being tops for Cod and Pollock and the blue white mackerel tops for Bass.
