This inline lure is designed to catch more fish – and loose less! It will cast far and has a great irregular action that will attract fish from far away. Occasional spin stops will make it spin and rotate to attract even more trout’s.
The 18 and 28g sea trout versions are designed for sea trout fishing along the shoreline. Even in strong winds they will cast far and still they can be fished in surprisingly shallow water. During the test of the final sample of this lure, one of our test team members caught an impressive number of big trout’s including five chrome fish exceeding 3.0 kilos – all caught during five hours of fishing!
Rigging tip: Run your line through the lure and use a small round or oval bead to protect the knot before tying the line to a single- or treble hook of your choice. If you prefer a free swinging hook we recommend mounting the hook on an oval split ring and tying the knot to the double-stranded part of the ring.

Designed and developed in Scandinavia
Westin Fishing. Ingvar Westin grew up in the fertile fishing grounds north of Stockholm. There, he plied his trade as a skilled toolmaker, creating intricate carvings and devices. For artisans in the nearby cities. Ingvar lived a humble life. So when his children wanted a new toy, he decided to create one himself. Soon, Ingvar began work on a carved, wooden fish that wriggled and rolled in the water just like a real fish. Ingvar spent countless hours refining the toy to get a perfect, lifelike action that he knew would thrill his children. In the process, he inadvertently created a new swimming motion. The Westin roll. When Ingvar’s work was complete, he christened that toy the “Jätte” — Swedish for “giant.” Word of Ingvar’s creation spread quickly in the small town of Skutskär. Wedged between the Baltic Sea and the River Dalalven. The town— which even today is home to just 6,000 people. Could be called fishing obsessed. In no time at all, local fishermen were obsessed with Ingvar’s toy. They noticed that large pike seemed to be irresistibly attracted to the wooden carving. And its rolling action, and they began clamoring for Ingvar to put hooks on the Jätte and allow them to fish with it. Soon, a cottage industry developed, and Ingvar transitioned from a toolmaker. To a lure maker with a bustling production line fueled by the prolific pike waters of Sweden. By the time stories of a 45 lbs pike caught on a Jätte began circulating in 1977, Ingvar Westin’s lure was known throughout Scandinavia as the go-to big predator lure.
