Lure covers are
certainly not a brand new concept, and there have been a number of which that
have been introduced throughout the years, many of which found mixed responses
from the market. EZ Bass (Professional Angler, Mark Lassagne) and Zander take a
look at CoverLure premium lure covers to see what makes this product unique and
different from traditional offerings.

Impressions: Covers Lures has come out with a complete line of wraps
designed to conceal and or protect your fishing lures. What makes the CoverLure
offering different is the natural sheep wool lining.
The CoverLure, a new take on a
have employed this material for years, and use it to hold flies. If you hook a
lure into natural sheep’s wool it would be kept safely and still can be removed
easily for use because of the interesting property of the natural sheep’s wool
itself which has no closed fibers, therefore will not engulf a hook as does a
man made fiber such as vinyl or nylon or even the natural fiber of cotton.
The retail package
The CoverLure’s function
either on or off your fishing rod and are currently available in 3 sizes and 6
different colors, they even have custom embroidery available, a great example of
this are ones that Cover Lure has done for Black Dog Baits. Each side is
complete with a thick strip of Velcro to hold whatever you put inside, in place.

First impressions: The first thing Mark said when
he first examined the Cover Lure products was “Wow! These are head and shoulder
above what’s been out there previously.” The CoverLure looks and feels like a
much higher quality lure cover than any other that we have seen to date. It
doesn’t feel flimsy or thin, as many other covers do. When a large lure is
inserted into cheap covers it almost feels like the lures are going to break
right through the plastic, nylon, or vinyl. With the CoverLure’s thick wool
padding it is hard to even distinguish where the hooks are.

Tests: Mark and Zander used the CoverLure to hold a variety of lures ranging
from Megabass crankbaits to oversized swimbaits over a period of two months.

CoverLure for the test
Performance: In using
these lure covers we found them to be exceptionally reliable and durable. The
Sheep’s wool inside keeps the hook from getting caught and holds moisture for
keeping pork baits supple. In testing Mark found that he could put a little
scent on the Sheep’s wool and next time he used the bait it would be ready to go
with the messy job of adding attractant again.
The hooks never hang up at
all, as natural wool has no closed fibers!
The thick strip of Velcro
holds the Cover and whatever is inside firmly to your fishing rod no matter how
fast the boat was traveling or how rough the conditions. They store easily and
don’t take up much space plus and sport an attractive Cover Lure logo.
