I am trying to find out something about this lure maker; specifically info on an elongated popper someone told me was made by Woody Bell (designer of Japanese hard baits)?? I do not intentionally collect lures but this was in my tackle box and its in great condition. The "someone" was a nice young lady at Lobina lures; she said he may not "be around anymore." She referred me to Ichibantackle.com; they had started a webpage on his lures. I also understand that he made the suave' (not sure of the spelling); which is also discontinued.
Appreciate getting pointed in the right direction on this.
