Re: ferrule damage

Re: Rattle Snake Selfies

Re: A really offensive word

I met a new customer of mine at a local park on the Rogue River so that I could set him up with his rod/reel and we could go through some beginning casting instruction. I asked him if he had ever...

Re: Underwater Fishing

That would just be cool to see a fish hiding out under a ledge while hanging out with it in it's element. Then to entice it to grab... nice.

Re: Underwater Fishing

Re: A really offensive word

Re: GoPro Advice Needed !!!

What's with these "younger" companies treating their employees well? GoPro, Ebay, Google, Facebook, etc. When will they learn that they won't be successful as a company until they beat the life out...

Great setup WJC! I guess what they say is true about "necessity..." being "...the mother..." and all. I'm sure we all want something different when we get to the water, whether we're talking about...
