The plastic, foam, or rubber cork-like things that have an egg-ball shape. At least I think these are called Okie Drifters. Anyway, they used to be fairly popular in the late 70's and early 80's according to a few guys I was talking to. I see them in the stores occasionally, and remember them as a kid, but I never see anyone using them these days. Why did they decline in popularity?
Does anyone remember other lures or flies that used to be popular (and actually caught fish) that aren't used much anymore? The fads of fishing.
