One of the shortcomings that comes with pulling Ilander lures is that their hair skirts, which add so much life in the water, get tangled up and matted if they aren’t cared for properly. Recently, Capt. Brian Speedy from Speedy Dredge Systems showed me an excellent way to care for tangled Hawaiian Eye lures. First, he soaks all his lures in scentless Downy fabric softener for a day. Then, while the lures are still wet, he combs the knots out of each lure with a thick hair comb. He then places the lures in the sun to dry completely before stowing them away. If you follow this procedure after every trip, your lures will look brand new for many trips to come.
