It's been over a year now and I'm still trying to catch my first fish on an Alabama Rig. I'm sure a lot of you know by now that the Alabama Rig has become one of the hottest new baits on the market. If you don't, an Internet search will surely clue you in to its potential.

Part of the beauty of being an outdoor enthusiast is observing and participating in the eternal cycles of nature. Recently I attended Easter Sunday church services with my son, son-in-law, daughter and grandkids. As I observed my grandkids participating in the celebration of The Risen Christ, it struck me that a generation ago it had been my children who were participating as small children and that a generation before that it had been me and my brother and sister learning the eternal story. In another generation it will be my great-grandkids learning about the conquest of death.
