"Same here, except we didn't sing anything patriotic. Pastor preached out of James, about how after it happened the Church in America forgot what it saw in the mirror. Darn good sermon."

Fishing

Hey, guys.I'm 25, got stationed out in Vegas not too long ago and looking for a new hobby. I've been considering fishing, but don't know too much.My dad took me a few times when I was younger, but that's about it. Anyone know good book, podcast series, or pretty much anything that would cover the basics of fishing? Anything from what I would need to know, to equipment, and even keeping and eating the fish? Any input is appreciated. Thank you guy so much for your time and help.AndrewSee More
