You don't need a $60,000 Boat, radar, sonar, GPS, Extreme Netman or a titanium plated nut cup to have fun and go fishing but the companies that exploit the great oudoors for profit don't wnat you to know that.

Fishermen that need a $50k boat, $50k truck and $10k of electronics to catch 4 walleyes just paid $10,000 per pound. How bright is that? Or you can do like Dennis and I do, dump our 14 ft 40 yr old Alumacraft with a 79 Evinrude 9.5 on it, and go out and not worry a molecule about getting it dirty, hitting a rock, or scratching it when we get to the landing. That, and its a heck of a lot more fun knowing that you aren't working 32 hours a week to pay for it all!

Good job Dennis. I really like how you're mollowing with age. Now channel the same line of feeling during deer opener. Boots, knife, gun and a game of tag with a big doe can be just as much - or more - fun, than a 20 pointer in your food plot during the Vikings game.

The gear does not make the outdoorsman, the knowledge and experience does. My brother in law (in a much higher tax bracket) needs to learn this. He can acquire the gear that took me decades but he won't have the skills. Good luck.
