Historical Story


Few lures create lasting effects in sport fishing; they appear enjoy popularity for a time, then disappear. One exception is the Buzzbomb and its family of lures. More than 50 years ago, Canadian inventor Rex Field from Courtenay B.C. developed an odd shaped lure and introduced a masterful technique for its use. “Buzz bombing” is now world renowned, and is a common term used to replace the term drift fishing.

Most angling techniques centre on placing bait or lure within range of a fish’s vision, where it hopefully bites because of hunger, annoyance, or curiosity. Rex knew that struggles of wounded bait fish lured predators, so he reasoned that more fish would bite a lure if he could attract them from beyond their limit of visibility, and then trigger their feeding instincts.

To accomplish this he based Buzz bombing on a youthful past time. As a boy, he often played with slender wooden laths, which made great playful swords, but they had another use: If you held one in the centre and threw it through the air so it rotated sideways, it made a loud buzzing sound. Mr. Field incorporated this concept with the help of a stethoscope to create a lure that worked equally under water. Through years of design and testing the ultimate “buzzing” fishing lure was realised, and as mor years past, more lures – the Zzinger and the Spinnow – with the same ICONIC SONIC characteristics were engineered and sold.

Techniques

Run line through lure, through enclosed black bumper and tie the hook on (Use 8 – 12 lb. test line for 1 1/2″ to 2 1/2″ Bombs, 15 – 20 lb. test for 3″ – 5″ Bombs). Use a good stiff 7 ft. rod and a medium to large spinning reel.

  • Don’t forget to put the lure on the “right way” – not upside down!
  • But that tends to work anyway! Look this guy caught a SHARK with a Zzinger upside down!.
  • Buy BuzzBomb Tackle single hooks and single bumpers if preferred, but realize that even our hooks are custom made and designed for optimum fishing performance.
