B & D Lures Pencil Popper is a replica of the old Yankee Pencil Popper and is made out of heavy duty plastic that can easily hold up to the rocks of the Cape Cod Canal, other than a Cotton Cordell Pencil. This Pencil Popper can be loaded with bird shot for extra casting distance. Comes equipped with VMC Treble Hooks. Great lure for the money. Made in America right in Ware, Massachusetts.
