November 4, 2011

Last Saturday and Sunday, I went to the new Dick's Sporting Goods store's grand opening in Fort Smith, Ark. It's big! The whole right side of the store is nothing by golf stuff. All you golf nuts will be happy.
I met professional fishermen Zell Rolland and Bobby Murray. The fishing tackle section was small, but they did have “flying squirrels” and “electric chickens” — two baits that I love to fish with during the winter.
