To celebrate this Red Gill Fishing Lures have produced a limited edition classic 1970's Lure.
The 'Diamond' anniversary lure.
This lure was one of our most popular ever with it's unique tail and we will be selling this blast from the past here exclusively on our website.

04 July 2013
Andy Selby and team from Weymouth Angling Centre have just returned from Sweden where Charlotte (Financial Director) won the Summer Cod Festival. The difference was the Red Gill twin turbo lures - they were deadly, she must have caught over 30 cod on the same lure and the only sign of wear and tear were the missing eyes.

Testing Red Gills - Ian Mclean
08 June 2011
A lot of reports about lure successes revolve around one or two fishing trips and how well the new ‘toys’ work. We decided that whilst this option was valid, we would take a longer timescale to come to our conclusions. Further more we also concluded that a wider choice of fishing venues would lead to a better and more reliable view.
Well two years later, the results are becoming clear.

How to fish Red Gills - No.1 Wreck Fishing
06 January 2011
The advised line to use for this kind of rig would be a 20-30lb Fluorocarbon, the length from the trace should ideally be 6-12 Feet. Other items pictured above are: Red Gill Evolution Sand Eel, size 1 rolling swivel and 8mm green bead and a Red Gill Nylon Running Boom. Using this rig setup the Red Gill can be worked close to the sea-bed with a reduced risk of snagging and a greater chance of success!
Red Gill Evolutions Testing
27 April 2010
Our testing was carried out by Jim Midgeley and Dave Barham, editor of Boat Fishing Monthly, aboard Arron Lidstones charter boat, 'Happy Days', out of Dartmouth. The test run was extremely successful as you can see from the Pollack pictured. Red Gill Evolutions have a weighted hook and flash-foil underskin for added action and attractability.

Cod & Pollack and Bass Selection Packs
Whats Hot - Boat Fishing Monthly Aug 2011 - Red Gill Evo Cod & Pollack and Bass Selection Packs
08 September 2011
Following on the back of the outstanding success of the Red Gill Evos in the last two years, it was a ‘no brainer’ to introduce two carefully selected ranges, in one pack.
Doing this enables you to try out a selection of colours most suited to the species you are targeting, without having to spend a fortune buying single colours in packs of three or four at a time. Once you have your favourite colours sorted, you can then purchase those colours in individual packs.
The lures in these packs have been selected because they are known fish catchers. Years of continuous feedback from top anglers, charter skippers and commercial anglers has narrowed the top colours down for each particular species. You get five lures in each selection pack.
Red Gill Bubblegum Pink Evolution Lures
Whats Hot - Boat Fishing Monthly Aug 2011 - Red Gill Bubblegum Pink Evolution Lures
Just why this colour is so popular only the fish know, but is certainly taking the offshore wreck scene by storm. This colour on its own is responsible for a ridiculous amount of big cod and pollack by charter and commercial rod and line boats in the English Channel.
There is something quite funny about watching hardened commercial fishermen using a ‘girly’ pink lure, but as they say results speak for themselves and this colour definitely gets the results.
If you’re not familiar with the Evo lures, then among the features are an internally weighted hook and the use of a special plastic compound material, that gives the lures there amazing action, and far outlasts other soft baits on the market today.
