It's one of Bob Ponds last creations. I have a few of them. He was working on them around the time he sold the business to Metcalf. i'll dig out one and get the name an all off it for you.It was in a different package from the standard Atom lure packs. I have got some of the few he actually had in the Atom pack. He was gonna hold onto this style as a play around business after he sold Atom lures.It was along with his dinner bell lures.Ron

I've been diggin around tryin to find the packaged one. have found a box of the proto types. They are rigged as the following-poppers with sliding hook on belly,swimmers like yours,with a lead head as a jig it,with a treble and a bait hook on the tail and also in Stripers Unlimited packaging as a bait rig to cast a snelled bait off the tail that has no wire just mono through the body. I'll keep looking as I've been doing some major organizing work to make more room in the shops LOL.
