When I was about 9 years old my Dad took us Camping to Wildwood State Park out on Long Island. We spent days Surfcasting the L. I. Sound. Sandworms were the Bait of choice. They came packaged in a box filled with Seaweed . Those THINGS scared the crap out of me !!!! Lol. As soon as you grab one these huge retractable black Pinchers pop out of the head and try to bite you. So after a quick beheading with my trusty knife they were all hooked up and ready to fish !
So when I started inventing realistic patterns my old rival the Sandworm was tops on my list. ( cause of the fond memories ) lol and a few drops of Blood !
