For a brief second i read it as squid 'phishing' lures...
"hmm a website with cut/paste phishing letters... interesting"

hey, this is a fun friday game.

here's the missing detail:

_DARGS=/cabelas/en/common/catalog/item-link.jsp_A&_DAV=SEARCH_RESULTS_NYR&id=0012212113670a&navCount=10&podId=0012212&parentId=&masterpathid=&navAction=push&catalogCode=IJ&rid=&parentType=&indexId=cat600178&hasJS=true

if you add that, then the link would work.

alternatively, just click on this:

http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/...

and then click on the original post link, and you should see the squid kit magically appear but ymmv.

smells like IBM to me.

I can just see the hit counters at Cabela's going unexpectedly crazy. "Hey, there's all these customers hitting the squid lures page, but no sell-through. And they all have this weird Schneier guy's blog as the 'Referer'."

Not to be pedantic, but those aren't squid fishing lures, they are squid lures used for fishing. You wouldn't be able to catch squid fishing with those lures.

These are squid fishing lures:

the lures you posted are useful to catch a wide variety of predators to squid, but not to catch squid themselves.
