Straight from the man himself—“2 Brand new colors!! A new variation of the Green Mack and new Atlantic Mack's!! Both have a pearl body with highly metallic color. The Atlantic has a faint hint of gold mixed in!. These will surely Slay this season!! These are getting painted on the next batch! Get a few for your bag!” @alans_custom_lures
I don’t want to swim with them but I do want to help them. When you know better, you do better.

My top 10 things you can *easily* do to help sharks:
1️⃣ Do not eat shark, in particular the notorious #sharkfinsoup, also be aware the demand for a shark steak is a growing trend so avoid those sellers too
2️⃣ Do not eat anything with high shark bycatch (bycatch is the unwanted fish/marine life captured whilst fishing for a different species). Avoid almost all tuna. Unless it's 'pole & line' caught it's likely to have a DEVASTATING shark death toll
3️⃣ Do not support any restaurant or business that contributes towards shark mortality. Many global Chinese restaurants still sell sharkfin soup so AVOID them and do not support their business by eating from their menu
4️⃣ Know what you're eating! Shark is often mislabelled as 'Rock Salmon', 'Flake', 'Huss' and more, do your homework and always ask what you're eating before agreeing to eat it!
5️⃣ Know what you're using. Check your makeup for traces of shark oils (squalene) it's faaaaar more common then you realise
6️⃣ Support ecotourism- Dive with sharks and tell countries (with your money) to keep them alive by spending your hard earned cash on local hotels, dive centres, restaurants etc. and show them sharks will generate more money alive than dead
7️⃣ Do not support #biggame or #sportfishing trips that target sharks. #catchandrelease fishing can still kill sensitive sharks like hammerheads as they’re prone to post release mortality (death after release)
8️⃣ Educate the world, or use social media as a tool to spread ACCURATE (and relevant) shark awareness, knowledge and education
9️⃣ Do not buy byproducts of sharks e.g. Unethical shark tooth necklaces, shark oil tablets etc.
🔟 Support GENUINE shark research organizations and scientists and ask HOW their work is helping to #savesharks past ‘raising awareness’
Do SOMETHING! 100 million sharks are killed every year (that's a scientific average, it could be higher) so please, make small changes that together, make a big difference.
Winners! Our little guy Adam was SO proud to catch his first fish in a fish. The only thing that tops it is winning the Hunters and Anglers category of the Dale Hollow photo contest!!! Pick up your copy and check out all the fabulous photos.
