Default herring swimbait

this is what iv been working on non stop for quite some time. its aprox. 6 inches. four piece not wieghted yet, realy spent most of the time sanding to best shape and to get the joints moving freely.. i think the hook style on is the best way to rig it. i think it could be safe to say the stripers are in trouble

That is exactly what I envisioned when you put up the first post of it!
If that thing swims as good as I think it should, you better make a bunch of copies!

rclark, I give you a lot of credit, when I saw your first pic of that plug, I thought, he'll never take the time to make all those cuts, pin all the joints, and get it to swim. Glad I kept my mouth shut, because that thing looks like a winner to me, if you get it to swim you have really done something.
Nice Job!
