Is taken from the rules book. Since the "pig" is hand-moldable and designed to attract fish by taste or smell, I would say it does not count as artificial lure.ARTIFICIAL FLIES AND LURES: Devices made entirely of, or a combination of, materials
such as wood, plastic, glass, hair, metal, feathers or fiber, designed to attract fish. This does not
include hand-moldable material designed to attract fish by taste or smell. It also doesn?t include
devices smaller than 1-1/2 inches long with scents or smell attractants attached. Molded plastic
devices less than 1-1/2 inches long also are not considered artificial, as well as foods; organic
bait such as worms, grubs, crickets, leeches, minnows and fish eggs; and manufactured baits
such as imitation fish eggs, dough baits and stink baits.
