Richie Plugs

IMGP0014

Plugs were used for casting or trolling for Northern Pike or as they are locally known, jackfish, in Waskesiu and Crean Lakes. Several local “shacktenters” made their own plugs. The plugs on display were made by Roscoe Richie between 1950 and 1980. . His portable cabin was on block T. Other models were made and sold by “Grandpa” Van Impe. If you guessed that these were made from curling broom handles you are correct. They were painted a variety of colours to lure the fish. The marks on these “experienced” hooks would be from jackfish teeth.
