At the base his followers have built a shrine full of the kind of big Tonka Toys that BMB plays with during the week

Beauty. Gorgeous country and water.

I've never caught a fish on a girdle bug in the east.... probably because I'm a bit embarrassed every time I tie one on. Since our water is way more crowded, there's a much higher probability of getting caught in the act.

I look over my shoulder to make sure the coast is clear before tying them on out west.
