Remember when going fishing was affordable?
I remember a time when I could go to the corner store and get a cane pole for $4.95. It would already have the line, bobber, and hook attached. You didn't need much more than that!
Worms were cheap! Or better yet, you could go through the mulch pile in the yard and collect a bunch of red wigglers and crickets for a day of fishing. Catfish, bluegills and bass would all bite on those simple things.
Now when you go to the big box stores they have tons of items claiming to work on this or that, all at a premium price. We hope to change that and get back to making fishing affordable for both new and old anglers alike.
