another thread i was just reading made me wanna tell ya'll about something i was given today.even though i am sure most of you will not know him but i was given a hoopnet tag today from a famliy friend of one richard higgins. he was one member of a famliy here in lawrence that comm. fished the kansas river both leagelly and illeagelly much of there lives. i collect this kind of stuff and have for some time . i had met richard a very long time ago and now i have one of his old tags.i have a large collection of this kinda stuff from the books they wrote to the traps they used. since this is a tag for hoopnets it would be very old.i was just tickeled to have it since i didnt have one of his tags.i now i can add him along with the rest of the higgins famliy and tom burns collection. maybe i will take a pic of all my stuff to show if people would wanna see it.most of it i have in cases but like to take them out and show people. i think my fav.thing about collecting this kinda stuff is the long weird storys that always seem to follow each of them.
