It can't be that hard, but I have never seen one up close to get an idea as to what they are made of (except the surgical tubing, of course...) Please help. Thanks

FOUND THIS
a section of surgical tube that has been rigged in such a fashion that it spins through the water. There are numerous variations but they consist of wire that connects a hook to a barrel and the tube is slid over this with a hook at the end of the tube. The lure spins so it's necessary to either use ball bearing swivels or our preferred anti-twist device, a plastic rudder. A sandworm (I've only used sandworms) or bloodworm is placed on the hook and the entire contraption is trolled.

Funny how things come back....

Looks like the lure Lou Rodia used when trolling the "big ditch" (ie ICW channel from Sunset Lake to 2 Mile Toll bridge). See one of his pics at the Bayville. Also called a Santini rig.

Anybody use a "Charlie rig"??

Some guy with a kayak site made 'em popular again
