Catching one on a store bought plastic jammy is almost as nice too.
but only your own would beat a good friends plug - .

Hey Rick, nice to meet you this weekend. Just wanted to let you know that the plug you gave me....as shown in the pictures the one that is grayish looking in the pictures....caught me a nice striper very early this morning. I was super impressed at the look and feel and details but how this baby wiggled with ease and dived down a little bit was phenomenal

Great stuff
