Renowned tackle innovator Patrick Sébile has created a new company called A Band of Anglers, and the range includes some truly unique topwater lures. The Ocean Born Flying Series of Poppers and Pencills dramatically increase casting distance without sacrificing action or fish catching ability. Each model features side wings and low air friction ribs that allow them to seemingly ‘fly’ through the air, even under windy conditions. Roughly 85% of air flow passes underneath the belly of any lure when casting, and the Flying Series lures’ ribs significantly disrupt this air flow and cause less resistance/turbulence. Both lures come in Floating (FL), Sinking (SK) and Super Long Distance (SLD) versions, as well as a range of colours. These lures are versatile and easy to master; all you have to do is change or alternate the retrieve speed and rod action to make the lures pop, spit, walk or create a bubble trail. The FL and SK models come with 4X trebles, and the SLD model comes with 6X trebles.
