I wanted to go to the swap but my wife invited friends over for a BBQ on Sat. So I have to go to the expo on Friday.

I just filled a blue Plano box for the swap and have a ton of baits I should get rid of. Is it bad when your stack of 3700 Plano boxes are as tall as you are (not including the 400 baits on my wall)????

Shawn -

Just think how tall that stack of 3700's would have been if your sickness would have started way back when we worked together??

I've got a new batch of Treats in the works right now if anyone's interested. I've got a couple Tonka Dream and Brown Sucker done right now. If I still have them by this weekend I'll bring them to the swap too.

    • That is a very nice Pimple spear!   They are hard to find. I bought a couple of them from Jerry Kelm. He said Pimple used spring steel from hay rake tines to make the spear tines.    I have not seen one in person with chromed or nickel finish like that, but there is a picture of one that looks exactly like yours on page 2015 of  the book "Ice Fishing Spears" by Marcel Salive. I actually wonder if it is the same spear. I heard Mr. Salive was selling off some spears about 5 years ago.    Are you going to be our tomorrow? If so PM me and I will bring the book out to give you a look. TS and I are going to out in the morning. 
    • Well, you were never very good at comprehension so your reply doesn't come as a surprise. 
    • Neither one is real big on massive debt and free govt. bennies, I'll give you that.   Just thought I would mention Reagan's libertarianism, since D2E brought it up..
    • Well, the Republicans have JV so I believe that is check mate for our side.
    • Angels Envy is a real nice sipper but a little bit pricey. Then again I have never met a bourbon I hated....just did not like it as much as others
    • Hey Dotch, that your avanti parked at Heartland Tire on south broadway and 28th in Rochester?   
    • Like the Evan Williams too, especially when watching the $. Don't remember even hearing of the other. 
    • There is libertainism and there is the Libertarian Party.  One has some good points and the Party is full of whackos.   
    • Evan Williams, black label, is my regular whiskey.    It is quite good and a tremendous value.   Haven't heard of the other one. 
    • While they may look complicated and scary to work with, it is not too difficult. A little practice and creativity. First pic is done by means of hand tossing (or little different pattern is by spray bottle) xylene or denatured alcohol onto epoxy. Sticks, leaf blowers/hairdryers, back rolling/ Swedish trowels all give a certain pattern. You can see in pic 2 back rolling can give an acid stain appearance. Pic 3 is blown. Just a bummer product price is not super friendly. However epoxy can take quite a beating, including acids.
