Pics of two-hook Gibbs Skippers?

All of the photos I've seen of old 6" Skippers are of the single-hook style.  I've read that they also were made with a "belly" hook in addition to the treble tail hook.  Would love to see any pics you can come up with.

I had a nice picture of it with a dark red siwash but it was on the old computer that crashed :banghd:

That must have been just gorgeous!  There's something special about the paint on those old Gibbs.  So rich, so deep.

I suppose that's a friendly way to lose a plug!

The reason I'd asked about Skipper2 plugs is because of the trend to teardrop pencils, like this PK:

So why not put my skipper to use, after adding another hook to it?
