haha hi guys Im so glad I found this site. any way I grew up in st louis and used to fish most of the ponds around florissant. I usually stayed away from the river because I would always get my line snagged, but the last two times I have fished in the river I have had luck. the thing is, I havnt been fishing in almost two years. I have moved 8 times in the last five years and in the process all my fishing equipment was lost. so basicaly I am starting over. I want to start river fishing and would like to know the "odds and ends" of it if you will. I live in the florissant area and usually like to fish on the missouri side under the alton bridge or right by it whatever that place is called. any pointers or advice?? besides learning the names of places I mention?
