Jointed Poppers

I would love to see some tying designs for jointed poppers. I happened to have one that I seemed to have tied back in another life. The body is balsa and I cleaved the bottom and inserted lure wire with a twisted loop front and back. At the back was a split ring that a feathery hook was attached to. The action on this fly was simply irresistable. It swims like a snake and outfished my other poppers badly.
The wire in the body is a pain to make and heavy. What are the options for tying this?

Thanks Jay
