COVID-19 can and will kill you stone cold dead!  If you do not take the necessary precautions?  Experts say the most likely way you'll become infected is from the air you breathe.  So, wear a mask, or at least a scarf when you have to go shopping.  Rubber, or Nitrile gloves must be worn too.  Bleach wipes? ...make your own by making up a strong 1 to 3 mix.  Keep at least 6' away from other people.  Treat everyone like they're infected!  Stay home.  Stay safe.  Better days are coming!

9/28/20  Torture test video update show the abuse our tackle can take and survive.  This was a fun shoot where I learned Salmon Buster™ spoon are darn near unbreakable when we rolled a 5800 pound Ford F250 Super Duty over them.  Tire pressure is hard 65 pounds to make this test even more eye opening.  For 1280 by 720 HD video off You Tube: Click Here
              Used a GoPro 7 with a Rode mic mounted on a Vivitar handle to create this movie.
