First for Hal: Where do you guys get off calling something "Oregon Cheese?" I thought all the 'cheese-heads' were out your way?
Andy, another possible 'tie' is to get Malcom (Willie Gunn) to send you a doz. eggs from Scotland (after all this is "McFly"). A small hole in each end and blow out contents. Touch of candle wax to seal; spray paint appropriate colour. This is the floating pattern.
For a sinker: make one of the holes larger and fill with lead shot.
The "mystery" of either pattern is how you attach the hook. Too hard to explain here so I'll show you when you get home.
