Default Re: Enjoying the simplicity on a budget. Possible?

Fred,
I love the pictures of the kids. Simplicity at its finest. I remember having my reel break when I was young and tying mono to my rod and using it like a cane pole. I caught fish and it was a blast.

I remember another trip to Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee fishing from a boat with cane poles, dropping jigs into the lilypads catching fish after fish. Tackle value...about 5 bucks. Memories...priceless.

Is it possible to enjoy the takara way on a budget?
Sorry about blowing up your thread...it's Fred's fault!
