Re: Carp Leaders

Re: How old is your 'fishing car?'

2001 GMC 1500, 189K and still running strong. I bought it new. Other than oil, tires and brakes, the only thing that I ever had to fix was the fuel tank sending unit.

Re: Fluro Fibre, Holo Tinsel, Krystal Flash, Wire, blah, blah, blah

Re: Vest, chest pack, side bag...
