If I remember correctly, the Gibbs fishing show display has some plugs in this color.

I did talk to Steve last September about these and he said he had never seen a bumblebee danny, but he had several other bumblebee plugs from Gibbs. If I remember right he said that John painted them.

check a regular color mack pattern danny by gibbs and see if it matches the pattern on the bumble as they probably used the same template to do them all and the pattern would be similar, like checking the fingerprint. That way you can see if it was done by a ghost writer maybe.
