    Whatever happened to fishing for PEARCH with a Bamboo pole and worms? Good Lord, we used to catch tons whenever we wanted fish for supper or lunch. No fancy store bought equipment needed. Heck, sometimes we used a broken twig for a cork. No problem! If you have access to green bamboo, thats all u need to get a fishing pole. The trick with green Bamboo is how to properly dry it so it’s straight. I learned a perfect technique when I was a kid growing up in Port Arthur. If you try to dry Bamboo just by cutting it and laying it down somewhere, it won’t work. You’ll have the crookedist pole you ever saw. Guess us oldtimers are out of touch nowadays. Too bad!
