I have a telescoping aluminum one that I have had for many years. I have never been that happy with it. the galvanized duck bill always rusted and the poles would stick together and be hard to extend most of the time.
I like the long carbon fiber ones but am too cheap to buy one. I am going to...

I was fishing down in Leeville this weekend and none of the stations listed on the LSU sports network were broadcasting the baseball game. Of course we were too far from BR to pick it up on 98.1.
The radio app I have has 98.1 but it was playing music not the game. so I signed up for the spring p...

If you are a youngster you may not have heard the term. It was a commercial in the 70's that had Elle Fitzgerald's amplified voice breaking a wine glass. The hook was if it was her live voice or her voice recorded on Memorex cassette tape?
