Gary was a what I call your basic Floridian. Grew up in Florida and learned to love the land and his surrounding. Fishing and hunting just comes natural being raised in Florida. Gary was a Meat Inspector by trade but was self taught taxidermist. His dad’s favorite lures were made by Jim Pfeffer. When Gary was 15 he started making his first lures and over the years after Pfeffer passed away were often duplicated Jim’s work.
Here are just a few I have owned for some time now, and they seem to be somewhat hard to find in the field. His Packaging is very similar to Pfeffer as well and in envelopes like Pfeffer but with more graphics on them. Gray had printed them and each one had the lure name, His name and 3030 N. County Rd. 426 Geneva, Florida 32732 printed on them.
