mtwiBi inn nun mnuiii ni Aubrey Shepherd Area Men Making Sporting Godds Sporting goods manufacturers are having great times of late. Nationally, sales are booming and new products are hitting the market daily. Not all the noise is coming from big, nationally known firms, however. In Northwest Arkansas, several, companies are manufacturing various sporting items. One of the really fast- growing concerns is Greg Enterprises, P.O. Box 229, B'ay- etteville. Greg Gopeland is president of the company and does a lot ot the work himself. The company manufactures oversize power handles for Garcia Amhassadeur, Sears Ted Williams, and Daiwa Millionaire fishing reels. They are making high- speed gears for the same reels. Formerly. Greg's products were marketed by Lew Childre of Alabama (marketer of Speed Sticks). Nowadays, however, Greg markets his own improved version of bath products. Coverage is nationwide, with most intense coverage in the deep south and midwest. The newest service of Greg Enterprises is the repair of casting reels. Greg has a complete stock of parts for Garcia reels, and the shop is an official Garcia service center. At present, service is very fast; usually one-day- service is provided on most jobs. Greg can repair most reels built on the Ambassa- deur pattern. Starting this week. Ken Tinsley will be shop manager for Greg. Ken formerly worked in reel and rod manufacturing for Shakespeare of Arkansas This summer, tlic shop has been managed by Jack Copeland, brother of Greg and a junior psychology major at Tulsa University. Jack is returning to college this fall to continue work'"' toward a possible medical · research career. Part-time employe Randy Newton is attending the University of Arkansas. Located in back of Gregory , Center on West Street in Fayetteville, Greg Enterprises is producing about 1500 reel handles and 400 sets of speed gears per week. Production is expected to be more rapid during the fall when distributors and wholesalers start to stock up tor spring sales. FILLET BOARD Vol Sharp and Jim Price have patented a fish filleting board which can be attached to the side of a boat and removed for cleaning. Fish may be cleaned at the lake or at home. At present, some of these boards are available, but in the near future Vol hopes to have them widely available. The idea Is very sound, with the possibility of eliminating -the mess and bother often associated with the cleaning of fish. By taking along a garbage bag for the waste pants and a baggie for the fillets. Hie owner of one of the Price- Sharp fillet boards could' easily get home with one of his most unpleasant chores already done. What to do with waste fish parts may appear to be a hard question. But several alternatives exist. Feeding cats is one and fertilizing a garden is another. The main idea expressed by Mr. Sharp is that taking pains to preserve the fish is important. Bass, crappie and even bluegills may be filleted, decreasing the amount of freezer space required for storage of fish and increasing the amount of fish which may be fried at any one time. According to Brent Hemingway, the best jigs in the stale are made by Wayne Cann of Prairie Grove. Brent goes further and says that Wayne is one of the finest fishermen and gentlemen in Arkansas. Brent has fished for crappie with Wayne in several locations, including both Oklahoma and Arkansas. Until recently, Cann jigs included polar bear models, which were excellent. But conservation laws have made killing polar bears illegal and substitutes have been found. The bear hair jigs may be found in a few area stores still. ARKIE JIGS Larger jigs designed for bass fishing come from Bob Carries and Murray Lewis of Springdale. Their primary jig comes in four sizes -- one- fourth, three-eighths, one-half and five-eighths. A few years ago most bass fishermen used the heavy lures, but lately lighl jigs have been demanded by ultra-light fishermen. Jigs for grub heads with fiber guards are one of their best selling items this year. Bolh t w i s t e r and conventional grubs are fished on these heads. Bob and Murray market a flat tailed plastic worm. Both worms and lead head items are marketed under the Arkie trademark. A new item to be produced by Carnes and Lewis and invented by a group of men from Springdale is designec to show water clarity ' and temperature both at the surface and near the bottom This product is designed for a permanent mount. Sevcra" studies published in recen years have asserted the importance of water clarity in finding fish. Water tern perature is a long-establisher measure of fishing potential. J and G Boat Company o: Springdale is manufacturing a line of fiberglass bass boats Charles Gray and Joe Vinnola are the owners of the com pany. According to Joe, the company has been operating for nearly four years. The; do fiberglass contract work as well as boat manufacturing Also, they repair boats anc motor homes. Plumbing fix tures, such as tubs am showers, are among their big items. The Lineside Bass Boat i: 15 feet three inches long with a 54 inch beam and is rated for 50 horsepower. Stick am console steering are botl available. Plush, deluxe seaL come as standard equipment along with Astro Turf carpe ing. J and G has producer about 100 boats this year Lineside boats are distributee in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkan sas. Missouri and a few othe areas. Plans are bein readied for two new styles o bass boats for the 1975 sea son.

HARD NOSED FOOTBALL Rowland preaches hard-nose football. "That's what we try to sel our football players on. We don't run a high risk offense Ve're not real fancy.
