Default First plug

I was rumaging around a bucket of misc. junk the other day and came across this old clunker, it was the first plug I ever made, somewhere around 1980, things were simple, a broom stick, poured lead in a drilled hole through wired with galvy wire,and house paint, hundreds of fish latter... she came to land in a bucket of crap, I'm going to send it to my son, someday oit will mean more to him than it does to me...

Looks like a 1 1/4 atoms popper, except for the tail hook. Are you sure Bob Pond didn't make it. Did you copy it.

This is kinda embarrassing but.....................

22 years ago and about 25 days ago:





Man, is that yellow one a POS or what ?

Made out of a broken pool cue handle, explains the x pattern and shaped on a Milwaulkee belt sander clamped in a bench vise. Rustoleum yellow, a poorly shaped lip, screw eye hook holders and some cheap stick on eyes. Whole thing dipped in urathane.
Swims like crap.
