Extreme couponers are stealing my recycling. Once I put it to the curb it’s in the public domain, I suppose, but when a black Ford Econoline creeps slowly in front of the house at 3am, it creates unease. Why was I up at that hour? Teething.

I tried my first coupon at Costco over the weekend, to see what it’s like. I put it towards a 32-pack of Diet Dr. Pepper. In the days following I’ve had 13 of them, if for no other reason than they are dominating my refrigerator. I found the crumpled receipt from the trip in my pocket this morning; no discounts noted. After all my clipping efforts to arrive at that point, she didn’t even scan it . I feel violated. But that may be due to the excess phenylalanine in my system.

not a striper

You don’t need Korkers and breathables for the duck ponds, just ditch kickers for the goose shit. In the context of locale, it all seems askew, like reading Wired on microfiche.

The salt water is calling, about 30 minutes from my house, but work keeps me flying to the midwest. There are no albies in Indiana.

BLOGGER’S CONTEST: Win Ditch Fishing Array

The Redington Predator 6W
The Redington Predator 6W

Bloggers sent me a lot of stuff this year in the form of flies, fly boxes, t-shirts, tunes and fly tying scissors.  Michael Gracie, Matt Stansberry, Roughfisher, Keith Barton, Jason Puris, Murdock…all sent something my way. I need to finally give something back.

Some of you know I like hitting the ditches when I visit South Florida for the funky payoff. So I’m offering up a Ditch Fishing Kit.

This includes:

–The Redington Predator 6w rod they sent me to demo for a ditch rod review.

–A couple of mutant flies.

–A 6th Finger tying scissor from the man who coined the term “Brownlining.”

–A long sleeve bass t-shirt from Apex Predator.


Bloggers only. If you have a fishing related blog that’s been in existence for at least a year, leave word in the comments section with a link to your blog.  Doesn’t matter what else you say because the winner will be chosen at random from the comments. Closing date to be determined. The winning blogger gets it all plus a post profiling your blog for my six readers.
