Squidro variants, shrimpy type things, and the pink thing at the bottom is made from a replacement skirt for a "Shimano Lucanus" sea fishing"jig", so I decided to try one in fresh water, I'll just add a white orange or pink/purple single collar on top for variation.

Rod in excellent condition, with a few very minor marks. Very lightly used.
