There is an interesting story here behind the scenes. Mike, who makes these jewels, is an avid follower of mine. In fact, Mike tells me that years ago he read some of the stories I wrote for the magazines about plug making, and that led him to begin making plugs. I got a chance to see many of his creations recently at the Springfield Sportsmen's Show. He makes dozens of different models of plugs with loads of custom coloring. The finish on his plugs is the very best I have ever seen and the detail that includes glass eyes and scale patterns is stunning. I asked if he sells his plugs and indeed he does (from the website above).
So, do these plugs work? If you look at the photo gallery on Mike's website, you will be amazed at all the big stripers and bluefish that were taken on these plugs. This is a real testament to the effectiveness of these beautiful handcrafted lures.

It is a two ounce darter. The detail and finish are beautiful.
