early bm perhaps?

14 posts in this topic

I dont know man....Ive had so many "early BMs" i was convinced were Pichneys..Ive always wondered did BM and Pichney build together at some point?Or did BM just copy everything he did?

looks like bm, i am down to my last one in that size. if anything the line tie eye looks short some of the ones i had were pretty narrow and stuck our at least 3/8 inch.the one and only bm in herring i had, did have a much darker back. Drew C just posted pictures of 2 the other day.the grommets of my early ones are punched.

bobby[bm] worked for danny at the end of the day after high school...took over when danny passed..it's why they look so much the same.

grommets are throwing me..different from what danny used....the tail wrap is a left turn like danny did..same finish...shiney lip too,but danny didn't always scratch his lips...so ?

Did BM ever epoxy over his tail wraps like Danny did?To me that answers the question of who made it.

I was just about to say note the nose loop is glued in as well as the tail wrap is finished over..when I get the chance I'm going to go through my pichneys to check out the tail wraps...I've seen that odd tail wrap before somewhere..

 

I'm right handed an do my wraps in the other direction...I have a few of bobby's old plugs I'll check them too...were danny an bobby left handed ?

Although I didn't know Bobby at 16 we likely met at 17/18 years old. He did not know Danny at this time.

A lot later than most seem to think. 81 maybe but that's off the top of my head. I knew Danny for quite sometime before Bobby and I met Danny in 76 I think
