Zara Spooks, like the Zara Puppy, are designed to allow you to control the lure's action. This is done with a slack-line twitch of the rod tip that creates the left right, "Walk-The-Dog" action for which these lures are famous. It take just a little practice...it's best if you start slowly. Once you've obtained the zig-zag action then you can increase the speed. these lures have a reputation of drawing fish from as far as 20 feet and the strikes are vicious. Be sure to allow the line to tighten up before setting the hook.
