    Very nice

    Pay attention to what history has taught us or be prepared to relive it again

    Nice work, and wrapping, Doublerunner.

    Must have been an awesome present for your Dad to get from ya.

    Tell him I said thanks for his service to our country.

    We will christen it properly this fall.

    Thanks everyone.

    Disclaimer. Yes I built the rod but not the plug. The plug was made by Jackbass from this site. Nice patriotic spook with the USMC on it
    Enjoy the Journey

    Unfortunately not. I got him out once this fall and we got skunked. Then a few days later he took a bad fall and broke his hip. He is recovering but at age 77 that process is slow and he is probably not going to get back out this year. Unless I take him on a boat which neither of us want to do

    Thanks for asking
    Enjoy the Journey
