Corky Mk2

I like the idea of catching a pike on an old school cork lure so I've created Corky Mk2 based on my Taskmaster one.

The sharp beer bottle lid has been replaced with a plastic Diet Coke lid and a champaign cork body which is a nicer shape.

The wire runs right through the cork body, as cork is too soft for little screw in eyelets and I don't want to leave a hook in a pike.

And who can resist a nice (if somewhat obvious) diagram?

And I know a shallow weedy pond to test it in when the season opens...
