Whether trolling or casting, the goal is to catch a fish in its natural habitat, which requires a strategy and just the right lure to entice it.

Some of the most sought after species (pike, perch, walleye, muskies, and bass) tend to be found in deeper lake water, where it is darker and cooler, seeking their prey towards the bottom. Many fish of this description also have light-gathering vision, an important sensory tool for seeing in lowlight or murky conditions.

The Nils Haka Deep Diving Lure is 7cm long, hand-painted wood, with full “wire-through-body” composition and equipped with two sets of VMC hi-carbon steel hooks. It descends quickly and deeply below the surface of the water, following steep shorelines and underwater terrain. Its unique design creates true-to-life motion, swimming with the tail above the head.
