Blast from the past

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

And you could mail order a gun and have it delivered to your houseback then.

The next time won't be the first time I've made the same mistake twice.
All the romance of fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.

I've got 2 of the 7.5 motors they show there in the middle of the page. Mine are a bit older, one is a '59 & the other a '60. Scott-Atwater made them and badged them as Elgin for Sears and then were bought by McCullough corp. Good little motors, both of mine run and they really are easy to tote around.

If I had a nickle for every fish I've ever caught I'd just spend it on more tackle and boat stuff.
