I fish them as well in early Spring and do quite well. Last I heard, that Uncle Josh would not re-open. The quality pork skin they need does not seem to be readily available, the cost is really high and the demand is not as high as it once was. I can see with all the plastics now-a-days. Sad to see a company like that close its doors. I have a recipe on how to make your own, but it is too cost prohibitive and too time consuming.
