Default Some old, some new

Can't remember if I posted these:







The bottom one went up to Rhodie last fall where it beat on fish, the other two are hanging on peoples walls (I hate that).

those look like they'd be deadly when the bass are on small bait...

if ya knew they were gonna make a wall hanging out of them , you could have spared the the time to seal them and through wire them...

I had a guy buy a 800 series pike just to hang in the mouth of his sailfish mounted in his law office.... he probably bought the sailfish as well!

Sea-Sea, the amount of work it takes to produce a plug/finish like that... is too good to sell... you never get what it's REALY worth!

Roc, to give some perspective of the size of the one on top, that's a 5/0 hook. The plug on the bottom (of the top picture) is even bigger.

Big one, 5/0 hook


Medium one, 4/0 hook


Small one, 3/0 hook


Unfortunately I don't have any pics of the little freshwater size one that takes a 1/0

I knew it was a big hook by how far it extends beow the plug, it loks to be about 3 1/2" or so, perfect "peanut" size...

It went for $50 in an auction - and I think that's completely insane. I just had a Brazilian Rosewood needlefish go for $70 in an auction over at that other site. That one I can kinda see as the raw wood alone was worth over $30.

Don't have to tell me, I know. I'm a carpenter. I build fishing rods. They (Walmat, Dicks and the big stores ) sell them at a price that its not worth making them. You just do them form the love of it or because you have some spare time on your hands. You can buy the hole rod made up cheeper then I can buy the guides for? Thats why the little guy is out of the picture now.
