Yeah, you won't. 

They were originally produced by Yum back in the early 90's,. then BPS had them in their "tournament series" line of soft plastics, then they discontinued them and we bought up all the remaining bags we could find in liquidation.   To my knowledge there isn't a single bag left anywhere in the world. 

I've been up Mitch's butt about them for several years.  He has a few to copy.

            Set yourself up a go fund me page called Wrenches Pink jerk me lizard. This will get you money for research and development 🤣. Get it going and go on tour, awe heck that won't work. You would have to leave the five city block area. Disregard this post it won't work,

I might go on tour with this and make more money sinking brushpiles for the local Hammers than I could ever make winning tournaments. 😊

I have no doubt Mitch could do it.  But he’s very busy 

Oh I understand.   

It's our fault for keeping it under wraps for too long.  Had we not then the demand for them might have been enough to keep production going.  I don't think any of us suspected there'd be a day when the key element of the whole thing dried up and blew away.   But then again.....if too many started doing it then the fish would have gotten used to seeing it, and by now they'd have quit biting them anyway.

Ya just can't win in this whole fishing game, it's like women and gambling.... only picks you up higher so that it can slam you down harder. 😏

It's true, ain't it? 😐

If nobody had ever bent the lip on a Cordell Redfin they would have gone out of production 20-some years ago.  The examples of stuff like that are endless.

These are "the ones",. but they are old and have lost their color (they used to be bubble gum colored) and I only have a handful left.  IMG_20181219_143230846~2.jpg

Wrench, get yourself some methylate colored JJ's Magic dip.  It'll make them pink again and if you let them soak it'll be all the way through the lizard forever.
