Description

FISHING LURE

The present invention relates to a wobbler type fishing lure which has a fish-like body and is provided with at least one hook.

A so-called wobbler is designed to trigger the fish's striking instincts to an optimal degree, and therefore the wobbler resembles a live baitfish in shape, colour, gene¬ ral appearance and swim. Live fish have a natural colouring designed for maxi¬ mum chances of survival. Therefore, they have a dark back which makes them difficult to spot from above against the dark bottom, and a lighter belly which makes them diffi¬ cult to spot from below against the sunlit glaring surface of the water. The same colouring is utilised on known lures to make them resemble live fish as much as possible.

The present invention which aims at providing a new and efficient fishing lure, is based on the idea that the lure's "chances of survival" should by no means be opt - mal, but on the contrary as little as possible for maximum fishing success.

A fishing lure, such as a so-called wobbler, which has a fish-like body and is provided with at least one hook, is characterised according to the invention in that the back of the body has a light shade of colour, and that its belly has a darker shade of colour.

In a preferred embodiment of the fishing lure, the body has, on the sides of its front part, eye-like mark¬ ings whose location and vertical extent on the body are such that an essential part of each marking is visible both from above and from below.

The invention will now be described in more detail, reference being had to the accompanying drawing.

Fig. 1 is a lateral view of a fishing lure according to the present invention. Fig. 2 shows the fishing lure from above, without hooks.

Fig. 3 shows the fishing lure from below, without hooks. Fig. 4 corresponds to Fig. 1, but shows the fishing lure without colouring and hooks.

Fig. 5 is a cross-sectional view along line V-V in Fig. 4.

The fishing lure shown in the drawing is a so-called wobbler and has a fish-like body 1 provided on its belly and tail with fishing hooks 2.

The body 1 has, in its head portion, a transverse passage extending through the body 1. The passage 3 is connected with a chamber 4 formed within the body 1 and extending in the longitudinal direction of the body (see Figs. 4 and 5).

In each of the two openings of the passage 3, a plug 5 is inserted which has a button-shaped head. Each opening is surrounded by a white or light-coloured annular marking 6 on the body 1. As shown in Fig. 5, the head of the plug 5 has a slightly domed shape conforming to the cross-sec¬ tional shape of the body 1. On its outer side, the head is black or dark-coloured and forms a pupil-like central dot in the ring 6 to resemble, together with said ring, a fish's eye.

When the chamber 4 contains air, the fishing lure travels on the surface. After removal of one or, prefer¬ ably, both plugs 5, water or some other liquid can be poured into the chamber 4 to set the draught of the lure. The fishing lure according to the present invention thus has the unique characteristic of being, in one and the same embodiment, both a surface-going and a deep-going lure. In addition, the draught of the fishing lure can be set by means of three attachment eyelets 7 on the upper side of the head portion of the body 1. When the fishing line is attached to the forward eyelet, the lure travels on the surface of the water. The farther back the fishing line is secured, the more deep-going is the lure.

As is clearly seen from Figs. 1-3, the back of the fish-like body 1 has a light colouring and its belly a darker colouring. As a result, the fishing lure is easily spotted from above against the dark bottom during fishing, and is also easily spotted from below against the sunlit glaring surface of the water.

In Figs. 1-3, the back and the belly of the body 1 are shown to be white and grey, respectively, but it will be appreciated that any suitable colours can be utilised as long as the back is light-coloured and the belly has a darker colour. Different shades of one and the same colour can also be utilised, for example pale green for the back and dark green for the belly.

To further trigger the fish's striking instincts, the body 1 may have complementary colourings, for example in the form of stripes extending obliquely downwards-back- wards across the sides the body. As will be seen from Figs. 2, 3 and 5, the body 1 has in its head portion a cross-sectional shape, and the head and ring 6 of each plug 5 have a vertical extent such that an essential part of each "fish eye" is visible both from above and from below, which also contributes to making the fishing lure easily spotted both from above and from below.
