Great Sports Equipment Website
Welcome to my Great Sports Equipment website.
Fishing has been a passion of mine ever since I was about 5 or 6 years old and hunting since I was about 30. I am now 72. I have purchased numerous products in the fishing and hunting world to try to improve my skills.
Being a young fellow from the Great State Of Maine the opportunity’s almost endless. I was always looking for that strategy to catch more and bigger fish or to out smart that big buck!
I now would like to share some of my stories and methods that I have used and learned over the years.
Stories About My Hunting And Fishing Experience’s
As A young boy of about 5 or 6 my Uncle bought a piece of land on a pond in Central Maine. As he was building his camp he would take me with him and I would play around the rocks at the edge of the water watching all the little fish that was in there feeding. I got the idea to try to catch a fish. I heard that they liked worms so I went digging and found a few. I got me a stick and tied a string to it about 2 or 3 feet long and found a small nail that I bent to look like a hook. I put the worm on it and before I knew it I was catching Sun fish and yellow perch. That day was the begining of a whole life time of fishing for me.
At age 19 just out of school I went into the Army and served in Vietnam for a year. When I got out I got married and soon started a family. I was introduced to hunting a few times over the years but couldn’t really get interested in it as I was still quite jumpy from my service in Vietnam. When I turned 30 I got introduced to hunting again by a Brother-In-Law and decided to give it a try. I picked up an old 12 ga. shot gun for $35.00, all that I could aford at the time and still then I had to make payments on it. I went hunting with my Brother-In-Law and really got into the Deer and even though I couldn’t hit anything with that shot gun, this thing called hunting got into my blood and I never quit.
These things my Friends was the begining of my hunting and fishing and still today when I am out in the wood or on the water I always think about how I got started.
