The Bill Dance Lure Retriever is a device used for retrieving snagged lures. Although this product may look a little funny, the Bill Dance Lure Retriever gets the job done. When anglers snag lures in trees and other types of cover they often are unable to get them back. Breaking off your favorite lure costs you time, money, and the chance at the fish of a lifetime. The Bill Dance Lure Retriever has an ergonomic handle that houses the line attached to the heavy lure knocker. The handle features a pull out winding lever and a push button stop for ease of use and maximum control. The lure retriever is easy to use - simply thread your fishing line through the lure knocker and slowly lower it to your lure. Once it reaches the lure the weight of the knocker will attempt to free the lure. Yo-Yo the lure knocker until the lure is free from the snag, the attached chains will attempt to wrap around the hooks as another method of leverage. With the popularity of the Alabama Rig anglers have made certain to have a lure retriever in case of the imminent snags. With the cost of the aforementioned rigs at nearly $30 it would be wise to invest in this little guy for at least some piece of mind when fishing such expensive lures.
