1. Salmo Minnow sinking no7/9 - poisen lure cast towards turning fish or buddy casting at trees.

2. Salmo hornet no 4/6 - cast towards turning barbel and cranked slowly along the bottom -colour choice Dace

3. Salmo Butcher - awsomeawesome lure -tiggers are suckers for this pattern

4.Rapala jointed Countdown 9cm - no longer in production collectors items super deafdly for mr whiskers - whateva colour you can lay your hands on

5.Rapala jointed countdown 7 cm - same as the 9cm

6.Rapala trolling lure - colours are right dives to 15ft

7.Salmo slider -the one and only famous Parrot colour with single hook application

8.Cotton cordell wiggle O - very effective lure used predominantly by Natal artlure

9.Salmo Frisky - one deep diving and the other a shallow runner - awesome lure

10.Pumpkinseed -infamous lure for barbel - sinking version is the one to get -sadly another lure out of production these days

11. Cotton Cordell BIG 0 the beeg one - good lure with rattles -nice for trolling

12.Spro Aruku Shad - good lure more for bass and Makriel but works well for barbel too -maybe worth changing the hooks.

13. Rapala Rattle trap - good trolling lure in both the small size and the bigger model.

I like the bright flashy bling bling colours they work a treat for me hence most of my lures are mainly either very pale or in firetiger colour.

Just to throw the cat amongst the pigeons:

A sunny day Slider (clear water)

An early morning -late afternoon-overcast- Slider.

Silicone prorotype, sink when cast,surfaces when retieved.(wrong mix'took 5 days to cure)

2x Dam EFFZETT spoons

Last but not least ,an original Heddon's Punkinseed (could flog it on E-bay and buy new lure-range)

Order of preference.; Parrot Slider,Parrot Slider,Black Slider,Black Slider, rest at random.

Feast

Thx Deon.what really impresses here, is that although a competitive Art-lure angler,our friend Ryan is willing to share not only some of his favourite lures ,but also how and where to apply them. 

Now it may not seem much to most, but it might just cost him an edge that he used to have over opponents ,yet in true Sealine-spirit (sharing is caring),he yet again share his vast knowledge.Dunno how one does the internet version of 3 cheers but Ryan,consider it done.
