Anglers across Scandinavia will be getting their hands on some hot US baits following a distribution agreement recently agreed by one of Sweden’s top tackle supplier.

Malmo-based Darts AB will be taking a wide selection of lures from Big Bite Baits. Our man at Darts, Calle Rosslin, told us that it has a wide line-up of products that are a great fit for Nordic zander, perch and pike fishing.

What products will be available? Curl Tail Grub, Fat Grub, Twin Tail Grub, Swimming Craw, Trick Stick, Disc Worm, Smallie Smasher, Shad, Swim Minnow, Cane Thumper and Jointed Jerk Minnow.

• Where will they be available? Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark.

• What are likely to be the best sellers? The Twin Tail is a true classic that always catches perch no matter where you are and has always been a top seller. When it comes to Texas or Carolina Rigs, the swimming craw gives the perfect presentation. Others include the Swim Minnow and Cane Thumper – popular swimbaits that are easy to rig and big fish magnets. Many new personal bests has been set with these swimbaits.
