Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard is the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week. Here's his lowdown on the Salmo Lil’ Bug Lures …

JUST the job for fishing on those smaller rivers and tributaries for searching out chub.

This 3 cm long, 4.3 g surface crankbait can be flicked out, on an ultra light set-up beneath surface cover or worked down under those canopies to induce Mr Chub to strike.

Finishes include a Green Bug, red Ladybird, brown May Bug and a purple and black topped Dunk Beetle, they all come with big eyes and a single size 10 treble hook.

Landing with a nice little plop, I bet you get some violent takes on these mini lures.

Price: £4.99.
