WILLIAMS Wabler Waving Spoon
Length: 67 mm
The Williams Wabler is the lure that founded the fishing tackle division of the Williams Company over 100 years ago. It is still today the best known and most popular model of the Williams series. The Wabler is a favorite with anglers. Originally a popular spoon for lake trout (lake trout), the Wabler stood out, as the photo galleries of old publications attest,
on a multitude of species such as rainbow, brown and all species of the trout family. It is also a favorite of pike, muskellunge, walleye and salmon as well as coastal saltwater species.
The Wabler, like all Williams lures, is stamped from premium polished brass. A multi-step plating then applies the silver and/or 24k gold finishes that Williams lures are known for. Nor are they standard silver and gold finishes. The plating of Williams lures is a jewelry-grade finish. The final step in the plating process is adding a top layer which is fired. This process called "electroclear" does not dull the finish like lacquer. It makes silver and half/half finishes salt water resistant and virtually tarnish proof.
Thanks to its stabilizing striae and its shape, the Wabler is a versatile spoon that also gives good results when fishing at different speeds. The ridge, which has become Williams' trademark, keeps the Wabler from spinning without changing its proven shape and action. This streak works so well that the United States and Canada granted Williams one of the few patents granted to a spoon. A world-renowned Canadian classic that has stood out year after year.
