Cotton Cordell Gay Blade 1/4 oz Fishing Lure - Chartreuse
The Cotton Cordell Gay Blade is small metal blade bait. It has a flat head that creates tight pulsating wiggle action with tons of flash - making it an excellent coldwater fishing lure for species like bass, panfish, trout, and walleye.

A double hook as opposed to a treble on the front of the lure makes it harder for the lure to snag on grasses and other vegetation. Available in 4 colors and 2 sizes.

Rumor has it the mold they had for it broke and was extremely costly to repair so it was discontinued.
