The Silver Horde Gold Star Octopus bodies are soft plastic skirted baits manufactured by the Yamaria Corporation of Japan, The Company was founded in 1941 by Captain Kasutaro Yamashita, who was a tuna fishing boat captain. As the story goes, once, caught in a storm, Capt. Yamashita was shipwrecked. He noticed that fish were biting at the colored rags that were floating in the water. Surprised, he reasoned that if fish would bite artificial material, he might use artificial instead of natural bait. He asked plastic industry scientists to provide him with a material which would be soft enough to resemble a fish, but strong, thin and elastic. The material also had to maintain its life-like features in warm or cold water. They succeeded, and the rest is history.
