They will all catch fish. Best ones were made by Norm before he passed away. Danny made some later, and may still be making some, but I do not think the quality was quite as good. Great plugs from great fishermen. Norm probably caught as many fish as anyone that ever fished this river. One of my best memories was ice fishing with Norm on what I am sure was one of his last winter trips. I have a Zippo lighter he carried with him and a sharpening stone he used many times to touch up his fillet knives. I bought my first shotgun from him when he worked at Schneider's gas station in Marine City where he sold sporting good from a catalog. There should be a picture of him in the dictionary next to "river rat".

That seems like a good plan. You really have something special there that only those of us that knew Norm would understand.

You got yourself some classics there boy!! Norn Kendal was an institution as far as walley fisherman go and more-so as a plug maker goes. I used to fish with his son Danny all the time. Norm made these in a little shack behind his house and all us trollers and still fisherman collected his plugs. Never sell them and revere them my freind, they are truely classic!
