SOME TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST LURE COLOR
UV vs GLOW LURE FINISHES
Understanding the differences between glow and UV lure coatings, is key to knowing which one to fish and when.
What exactly, is the difference between glow and UV coatings?
1. Glow coatings absorb UV light and and continue to emit visible light once the UV light source is removed.
2. UV coatings convert invisible UV light into visible light. This process produces a bright, glowing, visible light. UV coatings do not continue to emit visible light once the UV light source is removed.
