    I just use an all purpose hook with an adhesive back stuck to the side of my gear bucket. It works just like the old school forked stick but I don't need to try and stick it in the ground. The bonus is one less thing to carry.

    Just moved back to the area from Columbia, SC.

    I am sad to say I have not been fishing in PA for a long time. I have done well at Lake Arthur, Pymatuning. I have also hit some of the smaller lakes like Cannonsburg and Dutch Fork for quick trips. I see they still have not fixed Dutch Fork.

    I have hit the Yough around Boston a couple of times.

    Finally went out yesterday and caught a few fish. They were small fish, but they were fun.

    5 Bullheads
    2 Channel Cats
    4 Common Carp

    I run 14 inches of 2 inch PVC pipe attached to a 5/8 steel rod with 2 hose clamps and duct tape!

    Had them for years, trust them with my life, protect my reels fantastic!
