Did Danny use pine mostly bc it was more available?

He used pallets from con Edison.

Most of the swimmers were pine. 
Darters, and needles were made from birch or maple.  Excluding the Gibbs style needle which is pine.


Pallet wood from today is best off in the fire pit.

 

Some of his plugs were two pieces glued together, if he didn’t have the correct thickness of wood.  Nothing to waste.

@t_man7 Wow! Thanks for sharing that insight into BM plugs. I would have not of thought some of his plugs were made that way. 

You’re welcome.

Pichney, not BM.

Are these all the flatglide 2 oz. models? 

8” not sure on weight as it varies with wood density.

@t_man7What is your experience with how the 8” fish as far as sink rate and action go? 

Slow retrieve, slow sink.  They are a slight tail sink so a slow retrieve brings them up to the surface.  Good boulder field needle.  Have a slight sway on retrieve.

@t_man7 It sounds like something I’d love to use. I’ve lost a few plugs trying to fish in shallow rocky areas with the wrong lure. 
 

If these are something you’d be up for selling, I’d love to try a few out. If not I totally understand and I’m very appreciative of you sharing your experiences with these plugs.
