This was recently found here in Chattanoga, TN on a river clean up day .. anyone have any info ever seen one like it .. made similar to the old mud bugs .. but looks to recent to be old

I found out this morning the mystery is solved made by a company here in TN called tennelure inc in oak ridge .. apparently been gone since about 1984

This model called shiny hiny found others in the link below

On Thursday, September 08, 1977, a U.S. federal trademark registration was filed for SHINY HINY the lure above

This trademark is owned by Tennelure, Inc., Oak Ridge ,TN but was canceled
