    Default The Glory Daze,,

    Howdy folks,

    My Main Man Monty and I came up with the idea to put up pix of years gone by,,gear we used,bucktails,plugs,reels and other tidbits that were the normal gear used by most from those years ago.

    Monty will be posting both of our shots asap.
    I would like to see shots of your old gear just so the younguns here can see stuff they may have only heard about and to compare whats happening now.
    keep your eyes peeled as the pix will be put up asap!

    Default 5 plugs

    Here's 5 from R-P

    1- Port side,old rebel which has caught many a schoolie,when only
    schooies were around.[early 80's]

    2-Top-old mackeral pattern rebel[sinker] which has also caught MANY
    schoolies,we found that sinking rebels casted almost 2wice as far as
    floaters hence others wondered why we fished them.[80's]

    3-2nd + 3rd,small bombers blasted onto the scene,loved them,tossed them
    around bridge abutments and such with great results.

    4-4th is a 71 creek chub pikie? it has glass eyes and I love the
    color,metallic mint green with gold face,caught a few small bass with
    it.

    5-Starboard side,another old sinking rebel,many on that one as well.

    Default bicycle George

    BG and I go waaay back,back to about 1985 I think.
    He really didn't sling swimmers with us much.
    he was more of a wader and popper slinger than ANYONE at that time.
    he got me into wading AAMOF,I have waded with him many times and always had fun with him.
    I tell ya,this 70 year old can sling a 2 oz popper so far that you'd think it snapped off and just vanished.

    this man would put many of us to shame with his casting ability,he beats me and I ain't no slouch.
    anyhooo,I am happy to know him as he is not a jerk that will not help you land a fish.he will share spots that hold fish and things that work.

    The stories of the old salts will always live on as their legacy. Many consider themselves great fisherman but I think it takes years and years to build a reputation and become 1st rate. RP it's great that you were able to go and learn things from what seems to be one of the best out there.

    yeah plug,

    I sure miss those days,it was great hanging out with the older guys and buying atom swimmers,dannys and such,that was the highlight of everyday.

    most of those guys are gone now,Ernie the fly,sam[bite on my line]D'Urso,blue eyed Tony,waterbury Tony,4:30 Joe,Art [King Arthur] King,Danny the rod breaker,Tony "he's not ona yet"Vuolo,sherman "Crazy Rebel" McGilton and more.

    They really were great folks and no one fought at all.
    still in all there are some that still fish and fish with them today,Malibu Kenny,Tommy "get me some tyres" Pirelli,No *** eddie,Cadillac Joe,Bicycle George,Tony Ohhh and the guy whos' like my brother Big Steve Franco,those guys are still great folks.
    Hmmm,lets turn time back,,,,,

    That Jitter bug brings up great memories of casting along shore banks for large mouth bass. Throwing it around lily pads, seeing the the water explode.
    Loved fishing that way in the evenings.
