So this thread inspired me to do something that I probably never thought of doing.

I always enjoyed the butch green calico boxes, but they were hard to find. It was the right size for a 3/4 day, even up to overnight.

So the little hamsters started to roll in my head. Why not have them made.

I made a few of them (7) and will hand them out on my sponsored trips. Something a little different for my guests. If there is enough interest, I would make another run. But for now, these are freebies.

I don't wrap rods. I tried, attended rod wrapping class and bought all the equipment and never made a rod.

I then had a much better appreciation of rod wrappers and the detail that goes into building rods. Maybe when I retire. But for now, I will stick to jigs.

Yes Fishy, you will have one for your trip. :)

If I get enough interest, I will make a run. These do take some time though.

When I read that quote fishy, I thought of the old tv show "In Living Color". The skit of "Hey Mon!" I guess you can say I have, "10 job Mon". Those were some great shows with Jim Carey back in the day.

Thanks for the compliments guys. For those of you who don't know me, I like to put as much as I can in my sponsored trips. Jigs are always nice, but I like to hand out some stuff that is unique.

I remember In living Color it was a classic…..very very clever and funny.


You folks looking for a trip with over the top swag on a premiere boat you should hop on Jerry's 6 day trip on the Intrepid it leaves June 15…….If i wasn't going on a 8 day in July I would be all over it….

This is my African Mahogny box with stainless hardware. It has a removable fluorocarbon dispenser that sits in the bottom and holds 4 of the small plastic boxs. The finish is Watco teak oil. The side handles are spring loaded and the 2 rocket launchers are the tapered aluminum type. 17" tall, 12" front to back including the rocket launchers and 14" wide handle to handle.

Norm Kagawa made this one for me after I got inspired by this topic when it first started! I pretty much only do 7 to 10 day summer or fall long range trips and this is perfect for me. It replaced a mid-sized SKB I used for several years which is an excellent box, but not quite the same as having one just the way you want it.

Sorry for the lousy cell phone photos!!
