Anybody Know where I could get a hold of some of these babies. A blast from the past. Was cleaning out a old tackel box and found some of these old alou eels. man these were the cream of the crop back in the 70's I think i'll try and make some if I can make a good mold.

'tog,
Naw...those babies are long gone from the scene. Used to use them as my go-to lure back in the 70s...they were the creations of Al Reinfelder & Lou Palma & they're no longer in business. Last time I saw them in the stores was back in the early 80s at K-Mart in the closeout bin. They were great lures but after the 2nd hit by stripers by stripers (or the 1st by a blue) the rubber eel would tear & the action was gone. I used diver's wet suit goop to fix them (along with dental floss to tie them back against the hook) but once they tore could never get it quite right again. I still have a few of the heads & I use Lightning Eels for replacements...down to my last 3 right now. I understand that another company (maybe Felmlee) bought the Alou molds & you might look for those...used to see them in WalMart...

Similar Eel Rig At Bass Pro called Felmlee Eels

Don't know if you were looking more for the rig of the rubber eel but these are similar in appearance.

I believe I have seen the lead head jigs with the tube at Bernies Bait & Tackle in Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn.
