    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.

    Nice, the tag on there says they are herring plugs. Have you caught a lot of stripers on them when they're around or have you stopped using them because of their collector value?

    His shop was in an old barn located on Great Herring Pond in Cedarville Mass. Where he operated an old peddle lathe to make his lures.
    It was a one man operation in the mid 40s.He was well known and they caught a lot of fish.On the box it said "Heavy enough to get out there"
