Butcher

Butcher – an inconspicuous crankbait, that is a consistent performer in Salmo’s range right from the word go, our company start in 1991. Despite the small changes in its construction it is still in the top-sellers list and has a huge number of fans in many countries. Recommended for any type of fishery. Available in one size – 5cm as a sinking (S), floating (F) or a super deep runner (SDR) version.

The floating version is best cast downstream then retrieved slowly and steadily against the flow; remember to pause the lure for a few seconds near fish-holding features to trigger strikes. The sinking version of butcher can also be fished upstream, just retrieve the lure at mid-depth as slowly as possible with a few short, soft twitches; the SDR is also suitable for upstream and downstream retrieves. When fishing in lakes or slow-flowing rivers with the butcher SDR version you should sweep the rod tip around to dive the lure down to your required depth then retrieve it quite quickly and erratically.
