Excuse me sir....

Two questions really...
1. Do you drive a dark colored explorer that may have been at the Manisses on spring st. recently???

2. I have some of your plugs but was wondering how you recomend to fish each style...Seeing as every plug maker builds there plugs with a certin retrieve in mind....

Also might want to specify which plug since Don makes various styles of fish catchers....

Gotta let the 4.5 sink first and keep your red tip down a bit.
