theres a ton of pics in the rod and plug building forum...a lot of good ones in the link jim gave you..but tons more in the forum...lots of threads with pics..roc does some kick ass stuff...his handcarved bunker, the "old school" 40 style plug, the unicorn, ....his goo goo eyes, bottleneck, dannies, needles..you name it hes got pics of em in there...oh..his favorite.."giant" pikies are a must see...sudsy has some awesome stuff in there...he didnt build much this year..but im sure he will have more pics up this winter comming....salty dog...hes new to this site..but not new to building..he makes real fine lookin..and im sure fine swimming and popping plugs...all about fishing...good stuff there too, floatsum....he learning....very cool ideas..he will do well....ed white.....he knows how to airbrush..and is dying to get a lathe...he will also do very well, hes very talented...smulax...on his way up the quality ladder real quick...he catches on fast...gonna be some top notch stuff outta him this winter...i make some too..i learned a ton from roccus...he has so many helpful tips posted here and he spent a day showing me a few things...but most important he taught me a lot about the fish...its easier to make plugs, i think, when you have a basic understanding of the habbits of the fish...you have a vision of where your going with the plug throughout the whole proccess...with the intent of landing a cow on it...when you are confident your plugs wont fail with a fifty on the business end...your onto something.you will always have success and sometimes fail..be persistant..it will pay off. jeeze, i know im forgetting a few builders..sorry guys..its after midnight and i gotta go to bed....ill post again tomorrow..

More power to ya!
