Guppy Lures…yes we have them and yes, we will give you a chance to win them

Every year, once the holidays are passed, I hear the same thing. My friends complain about shows being boring, that show is too far to drive to, this one has lousy speakers, and on and on. Granted, I get engaged in this conversation too on occasion. But then I thought about something else..

Few years ago I went to Asbury Park Fishing Club annual Flea Market. I will be first to admit that I don’t know many players in this industry (that non-social thing rears its ugly head once again). Yes, I been invited to many pre-show parties and even more after show dinners or drinks. I have yet to attend one. Call me silly but I love getting home, as fast as possible once the show is over.

This might have been my first year at Asbury. This was in the days before SJ and during the time plug craze was raging. No one really wanted books, all they wanted was plugs, plugs and more plugs. So instead of just being ignored at my table I walked around and got to meet Ray Smith, bunch of NJ plug builder and one guy that came down the Jersey all the way from Massachusetts. That fellow was Wayne Hess, maker of Guppy Lures.

Little did I know at the time just how popular his lures were at the shores of Cape Cod Canal. All I knew , after meeting him every year thereafter in NJ that he was a cool guy to talk to. And boy , does he make one mean pencil popper. So sometimes the shows are not all about sales, attendance and speakers

I was pleasantly surprised when I found a box in front of my door yesterday from Wayne. In it, there were these Guppy gorgeous pencil, not for me, for you.

Good luck to whoever wins these two Guppy Pencil poppers 3 ounce Jobo Junior & 2 ounce Mini Me

    Glad to see another issue.I enjoyed the article of galvanic corrosion. Looks like you got lucky I would have gone home when the first tire had the problem.
