OK Roc.

My mistake. I remember that's what we were going to do. I'll send you a email. I'm talking tomorrow off to go fishing, and this afternoon off to test drive the boat and make sure I've resolved my engine problems. I don't want to be calling sea-tow tomorrow...

Oh Boy - Oh Boy - Oh Boy!!!!!!
I got the box yesterday, Roc, Jimi, Rick, Jollymon, MikeCC, hope I haven't left anyone out, the plugs are awesome, the fish are here, our last spring season tournament starts tonight, and I AM GOING FISHING!!!
Unbelievable build quality on all the plugs, my work needs to go to the next level, looking at the plugs I see lots of ideas I can incorporate into my stuff, the paint work and finish is elegant, what more can I say?

No more sanding for me for a while, just sand under my feet.

He's fine... we BS'd for an hour.. he's taking the rest of the day off and all of tomorrow to fish... that's why I went home to get them, so he could use them if he so desired...

I made it home, hooked up the boat and took the plugs for a test drive. They all swim great. These plugs are to pretty to catch fish on. I think I'm just going to stare at them for a while. There is some unbelievable talent on this site. You guys rock.

Roc- That plug swims like a dream- I thought it was a real
eel! You can make me a dozen and send me a bill!

Thanks to everyone for including me. It was my first full winter
of plug building and with everyone help and ideas I learned a lot.

I still have a long way to go, But now I have a good idea of
where to go.

Thanks again

Gary
