What to do? We head down to Alabama for the winter months. I'd like to practice my fly casting while down there but don't much care if I catch anything. In fact I'd prefer bein' skunked as it would simplify life. But since I'd be casting into open water I'd be required to buy a license. Forty-seven bucks. Life in an organized society has its minor draw backs. Not enough to join up with the vigilante/military wanna be/I don't owe the government nothin' crowd but it's irksome just the same.
I've got a cheap old rod and a cheaper old reel but lack the saltwater line that wouldn't crud up on me. Another thirty bucks. If I wasn't so damned cheap it wouldn't be a problem. But I am and it is. Time to flip the coin.
