Hello everyone!

Trout are hard to come by down here but time to tie is not. I thought I'd share a picture of my DIY pedestal, representing the best in redneck ingenuity. This thing is rock-solid, was $12 from the antique market, and comes with built-in material compartments. It even makes corn bread on the trail :) 

I'm new to this site and it looks like a great community.

All the best, Cornbread (?)

Welcome to the site.  Interesting use of a cornbread skillet.  Comes complete with separate compartments.

 

Where is the "down here" that's hard to find trout in?  There aren't ANY here in Central Florida.

Thanks! I'm in Birmingham. AL is lucky to have a tailwater (the Sipsey) that stocks. It's the only place in the state...I drive a lot to GA and TN.
Thanks for the welcome and comment on the diy pedestal.

I have too much fun fishing for Sunfish and Bass to worry about going after trout.
