strongly suggest doing so. It's one of those books that gets you excited and planning your nights for the next season of surf fishing. Chapter 10, "EEL SKIN LURES", which I must have read 5 times over the winter when I got the book discusses the effectiveness of these lures.
Zeno does an excellent job discussing how to prepare the skin for use. Follow it step by step. I was also fortunate to find an S.J. You Tube video narrated by Roger Martin on "Rigging an Eel Skin Plug". Follow it step by step as well.
It's a great lure, bass strike it with a vengeance..
