So good it’s… ‘essential’

The latest addition to the Essential range of baits from SPRO is the Aruku Shad Silent which the maker says will be ‘top choice’ for serious anglers.

It features SPRO’s ‘Mean Eyes’ to make it more effective, and a unique lipless design that creates a lot of vibration to draw fish from distance. Its front-first weighting makes the bait stand on its nose like a feeding baitfish for more realism and it comes in an array of colours. “It’s so good it’s Essential,” boasts SPRO.


  • Armed with Gamakatsu #4 front and #6 back treble hooks
