After reading so much about Orange Sliders here, I was in The Warehouse the other day and there it was, an Orange Slider! $14, jeez. So I bought one.

Because I'm cheaper than cheap, I figured I could make one of these, so I made two.

A pair of red rubber gloves and a couple of ball sinkers, and some nail varnish, et voilà.

See image below, the bought one is at the top.

I hope so, when I've been diving, I've often seen, in a mixed size group of Snapper, the larger fellows, will rush in and 'Elbow' the little 'uns out of the way, especially if the bait or food item is larger.

So that's why, I've made them larger than the store bought one.
