Keen recreational angler, Alain Jorion of Gisborne, also has his Black Magic ‘Freedom Grand Slammer’ lure available in lumo. Not only is the skirt in lumo over green and orange colours, but the head has a liberal amount of lumo green over the lead insert within, adding to its attractiveness. The Freedom lures are based on the pattern Alain used to catch his record 473.2kg black marlin in February 2002, the seven-hour fight seeing him earn the NZBGFC’s ‘Old man and the Sea’ award as well as the trophy for the heaviest fish of the season.
