I think it was the same guy who made the Dri Core tops. Michael Angelo, I believe. I remember his eelskin imitation very well. I have a jar of it somewhere.

It was Michael Angelo - If I remember correctly the shark skin rigged eels were called "Gizmo's". Michael showed me photos of large bass they took in P-Town on them. He sent me a package with a dozen brine filled containers - the package was all wet when it arrived as the containers opened. Took my share of fish on them. You still have some Flap? I have the original swimming heads buried somewhere - the sharkskin is long gone.
