Rated 5 out of 5 Chase — July 8, These are some of the best worms ive used, i went from buying hundreds of dollars off crankbaits, trickworms, and other useless baits…. They are my bait of choice. I can rely on them to catch fish. Rated 5 out of 5 Paul Egan — April 10, I started fishing at an early age at a reservoir behind my house.
Fishing Ultralight Fly or Spin tackle? When I began fishing in in Marietta, Georgia, the first body of water that influenced my fishing life was a local pond named Booth Lake. Booth Lake on Sandtown Road was a pond located a short distance from our home.
Harry Booth was the lake's owner, and if you pass through that area today you'll see Booth Road which was named for Harry. The lake bed is still there if you know where to look, but it was drained many years ago to keep local children safe.
Development has all but covered the spot. My fishing career started with the old 2 or 3 section cane pole.
Add to that some 6 pound monofilament, number 8 hooks, small crimp on weights, worms, crickets, grasshoppers, a small float, and I was fishing. I caught a surprising number of fish on that outfit. Then I graduated to spin tackle with a simple Zebco spincast outfit.
It was made up of the Zebco Scottie 66 reel and a simple short solid fiberglass rod which I still have. I caught many fish at Booth Lake on that spin tackle, and now I realize that I learned a valuable lesson: If you take your bait lure or fly to the fish, you will catch many more fish.
Even in those days while others were sitting and waiting for the fish to come to their baits, I was walking the shoreline casting parallel to the shore and slowly reeling my bait along the shoreline.
I covered a lot more water and caught more fish! Closed face spin tackle suited me then. In I graduated from highschool, got married, and moved to Athens, Georgia to attend the University of Georgia. As an undergraduate in I met a crazy outdoors type in one of my English classes.
George Taylor and I became fast friends and began fishing together. We fished in all types of waters for about 4 years before we graduated and parted company. George was more experienced in fishing matters so he convinced me to try a lot of new things like worm fishing with plastic worms. I didn't think about it much, but I began building skill fishing subsurface with plastic worms on the sunken woodpiles at Lake George.
During that time we caught many bass and some big bass. I still use that skill with fly fishing today.
To have a career fishing Monday through Friday with health insurance benefits would be outstanding lol. I also wonder what loses I would have endured. Not with tournaments but with life.

In addition George and I caught giant bluegills, and an occasional catfish with spin or bait tackle. We pursued white bass, crappies, and some other varieties in local ponds, lakes, and streams using light or ultralight open face spin tackle with small jigs, also.
It was all fun and we caught plenty of fish on level winders and ultralight spin tackle. We never managed to schedule the fishing reunion that I had in mind.
It was also in that time that I purchased my first fly rod. It was a 9 foot seven weight with 6-weight level floating line above leftand a collection of too large flies above right.Zebco Exec Bagby Relishes His Hands-On Role.

Now nearing his 30th. See what's new for by ZEBCO, including the new and exciting Star Wars series Classic – and if he does, you can bet he’ll be running the same “offense” that’s led to a highly decorated career thus far.
What’s the coolest thing that’s happened to your life . For the pond we fished on most of the areas were very tight to fish from so this rod actually worked out better than our actual rods. Needless to say my year old mewphew had the time of his life and can't wait to go again. Item may not last forever but it does work and it can take the abuse of a 2 year old.
