I just found George Carlson has passed away.
Made a call to see if I could get some plugs and got the news.
Some may remember him from decades at Race Point. Or have made the trip up from Montauk to Mass, in February for plugs. Or from I dunno where.
I only met him a few times at his home, where his shop was. Well into his 80's he was still making the Thursday trip to P-town to fish most weeks during the season.
The first time I met him he asked how many I wanted. I said $100 worth. I got the tour. He asked where I'd be using them, I said the canal. He nodded. I told him I belonged to the Canal Sportsman;s Club, He said"oh"
He disapeared into his bedroom, rifled through the draw in his Bedtable, and came back with a laminated card. "Quit that club in 1960" he says. 40 years later and it was still right where he left it.
Maybe you bought a plug or 20 from the back of his Scout. I dunno, thought someone might wanna know.
