A group devoted to the Angler and the Angler at Heart. If the topic has anything to do with fishing, this is the place to post. Tell us your fishing stories, talk about tackle old and new! What you like and what you don’t like. Bought some new equipment and want to tell us about? We want to hear about it. Thinking about buying a new pole and want to know it if it is worth the money? Ask up!Do you collect fishing tackle? Show it off with pride! Any type of angler with any skill level is welcome! And as this is I Knife Collector, this is also a place to talk about the knives made, used and collected by anglers! We especially want to see your fishing knives -- in the tackle box, on display, or in action!See More
