    Halco Skim Stick

    The all new Skim Stick is a totally unique and innovative design concept for blue water anglers.
    A hybrid between stick bait and skittering popper, the Skim Stick imitates a long, narrow profiled baitfish fleeing on the surface from any hungry predators in the area.
    It is intended for casting and slow trolling situations and features Halco’s new clear polymer technology with internal holographics and scales in some colours while other more traditional finishes are also available in the range.
    For the first time, Decoy 5/0 inline single hooks come as standard fare to make the handling active fish less of a risky proposition while giving superior hook setting and holding ability.
