New SNUBNOSE LURE design by Charles Weiss Art Studio

This lure design was the combined effort of Charles Weiss Art Studio
a Woodie Lures

Measuring about 5.25 -6 inches and weigh about one ounce. They are made from cedar wood!
They all have red glass eyes!
 This design is a good trolling and casting design for Muskie and Northern Pike. The diving lip at the front has two different lengths one for shallow and another for deep diving.
I'll have them on display at the 2014 Toronto Spring Fishing Show  FEBRAUARY 14 -17 TH.

Legendary Comedian Kenny Pobinson gave an insightful lecture on Black Comedians
 at the Mainstreet Library on Wednesday Feb 5, 2014.
The room was almost filled with eager attendees.
Kenny wearing a shirt with image of Red Fox was jovial and to the point with his comments. 
He began by introducing a rarely known fellow who was black and a translator between the

Aboriginal tribes and European explorers.
He followed this with commments on Jamaican reverse immigration (slaves) in North America.
The seminar included video movie sengments featuruing early  superstars of Comedy including The laziest Man in "Show Biz". and "Stepn Fetch it" The lecture was informative and funny at times.
It was a good way to enjoy a Cold february evening at the library.
