This Plug was made out of some kind of rainforest hardwood that was recycled from a wood pallet. The popper is handmade and was turned on a wood lathe. The wood used is a dense-heavy wood but it also floats, that's the beauty of this plug... you can cast it a mile and still get the topwater action. The red hooks and belly gives it's name...BLEEDING POPPER.. The finish was put on with various spray paints overlapping with a laquer topcoat. I have used this design to catch redfish and seatrout, but I'm sure it would work just as well in freshwater.
