Point, if you are talking about the eel skin tins. I have seen the work, but there a pain to rig. You have to skin the eel the tie the skin to the head. Water flows through the head and fills the skin so it loos real. Some people I know keep the skin inside out, other turn it right side out. I guess it's personal preference.

I have covered my needle with an eel skin. I don't like it cause you have to remove the back hook and hope the anal port is in the same location as the belly hook or you have to cut a hole for the hook and the skin will rip.
