My apologies if I came across as criticising this particular post or any one particular person.
Was just meant as a general comment ( hence "fellers" ) to all the feuders on both sides.
It's a no win situation, becomes a pointless exercise, and tedious to those on the sidelines.
If its tedious , then don't read or respond to the topic.
On another matter , it was brought to my attention that you have stated "You are sorry that you ever purchased box collector sets from myself & Paul Knellar". And your reasons why.
When the collector sets were done , I was still a full time lure maker. I made lures to make a living , this was my full time job , therefore I think I was more than entitled to make a profit for my work.
You run a tackle shop I believe ? Do you sell your tackle at cost price ? I don't think so.
Memories are very short in the lure collecting world , and many have benefited from my generosity with FREE gifts of lures over the years. Yet not too many have shown their appreciation for those gifts and it appears it was taken for granted.
You have also been the recipient of such a gift , when you told me times were a little tough. I too have had rough times so I had no hesitation sending your yearly lure to you for FREE , as a gift. I did not seek any public thank you for the gesture , but to receive NO thank you of any form , left a sour taste in my mouth. And your thank you to me is to say you are sorry you ever purchased my collectors set. I doubt that translates to gratitude !!
People in glass houses should be the last to throw stones , as neither Paul or myself forced you to purchase those lures.
