In Australian impoundments and freshwater rivers, there’s no greater source of food for big predators than the bony bream. They’re an essential part of the food chain all over the country. So, it only makes sense that the innovative designers at Savage Gear would make a lure to match the hatch. The result is the ‘3D Roach’ swimbait. Even at a glance it’s obvious they will lead to the undoing of many freshwater species. The ‘3D Roach’ is an 18cm long bait that ticks all the realism boxes, right down to its incredibly realistic kick that perfectly imitates the s-curve action of a live bony bream. This can be replicated by the swimbait at varying retrieval speeds. The ‘3D Roach’ utilises Savage Gears ‘Thru Line concept’ and can be rigged with one or two trebles either on the top or bottom of the bait. Perfectly suited for anglers who fish both snaggy and open areas. The ‘Thru Line concept’ also allows the ‘3D Roach’ to slide clear of a hooked fish to avoid unnecessary damage as well as, and more importantly, preventing the fish from using the weight of the lure to shake the hooks free during the fight. The ‘3D Roach’ is built tough to handle hard hitting fish and even has internally laid mesh to prevent damage to its jointed sections while in use. At 86grams the ‘3D Roach’ is a moderate sinking bait, meaning it’s great for targeting deeper holding fish along drop offs, steep banks, weed edges and the likes. It’s also great for punching out long casts to target easily spooked fish. For saltwater anglers, the ‘3D Roach’ closely imitates a number of different baitfish, and presents as a substantial meal for all manner of predatory species. Whilst being retrieved, the swimbaits soft fins vibrate and pulse, only adding to its realistic nature and evoking a strike. If you’re in the market for a new fish catching machine, then make sure you add the new Savage Gear ‘3D Roach’ to your list!
