Field & Stream Online Editors

Rainbow of Colors Imported lures from Asia have been shining brightly lately but carrying megawatt prices. The new Tsunami plugs from China look awesome but won't break the bank. Fresh- and saltwater plugs have 3-D laser eyes, a weight-transfer design for tumble-free casting, and premium VMC cutpoint hooks. X-coded models have a reflective holographic finish that makes them look realistically transparent. Price: $4.99¿¿¿$9.99. From Bimini Bay Outfitters Performance Products 800-688-3481.-Ken Schultz

Quick Read Some fishing accessories are worth their weight in gold. Rapala's Sportsman's digital scales certainly fit into that category. Available in 15- and 50-pound models, the scales offer a large digital display, a four-minute-shutoff function, and a tare-weight feature that deducts the weight of a bag or net. A single 9-volt battery powers 500 hours of operation. About $30. 952-933-7060; www.rapala.com.-Daria Gionta
