This funny, flippy-floppy silicone rubber fishing lure was found on the strandline at Whiteford Sands. It’s very realistic. It has great googly eyes and even the scales are painted on the body. It feels wet and sticky and wobbles when you pick it up. Originally it was lying amongst empty dark blue mussel shells on the wet sand. I couldn’t resist picking it up and taking it home. Now it resides in the bright blue bowl of beach-combed shells on my window sill.
