A BOBBER WOBBLER


A BOBBER WOBBLER

One rainy Sunday before the season had opened I was practicing casting on the lawn. I searched my tackle box for a proper casting weight, but the best thing I could find was a small egg- shaped float or bobber. The wind was pretty strong and the bobber rather light to cast well. I was just figuring on adding a weight to it when an idea struck me. Why not make a real wobbling bat out of this bobber? You see, I had been reading in the catalogs about the new wobblers and I wanted one to try out. So I retired to shelter to do a bit of figuring. In a few minutes my wobbler was completed. This is how it was made:

On either side of the bobber I gouged out a fluting with my jack-knife, about an inch long, s quarter of an inch wide and deep in the middle and growing shallower at each end. Then I cut a narrow groove down the back and fastened a long-shanked Snell hook in it. A bit of copper wire at the end held the hook firmly in its groove. On the underside of the bait I sunk a ringed sinker for a balancing weight. A screw eye at the forward end, located a bit above the center, completed the job. Total cost a few cents only. This bobber had a red head, a yellow middle stripe and a green after part, making it a brilliant bit of color. It dived and wobbled very nicely and the hook being set with the point up, made it practically weedless.
