A VERY MERRY Christmas!
« on: December 16, 2018, 04:28:38 pm »
Today I received this from a very good customer. Very very humbling that someone took the time to be so creative and come up with this. Wow. Greg fishes around Woods Hole and sent this to his fishing buddies who he made Saltys Kits for each as an AWESOME Christmas present!  (Greg is getting a SPECIAL present from Santa this year.....much deserved) See the pic on the forum!

And now with permission, I give you a Saltys Christmas by Greg from Plymouth!!

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the shop,
the tools were all ready, even the strop.
Fresh from Saltys, first a dip in thinned varnish,
In hopes that the finish avoids any tarnish.
Using thickened epoxy, I added the lead,
While visions of stripers danced in my head.
The lures were hung on the rack with great care,
Two coats of primer, so nothing is bare.
And with my new vise (amidst all the crap),
The 4/0 hooks are ready to wrap.
Though the fish in the Hole, have taken flight,
Surely in Spring, they’ll be back for a bite.
And so all you fisherman, who dream of the fray:
Merry Christmas!  Twenty weeks and its May!

Love making these lures.

Thought you might enjoy the email I sent my Woods Hole fishing buddies. 

Best,
Greg ********
A very Merry Christmas to all and to all a GOOD night!

Thanks Greg. Most excellent!  :bhappy: :bhappy: :bhappy:
