THE ROD - Neil Travis - Feb 13, 2012
I don't normally visit garage sales. I already have more stuff than I need so I don't visit garage sales, rummage sales, yard sales or auctions. However, one day I found myself at loose ends in a strange town while my wife was receiving medical treatments and as I was out for a walk I chanced upon a garage sale. As I was passing by I noticed a table that had some books piled on one end and what appeared to be some fishing gear on the other end. Certainly more out of curiosity than need I wandered over and glanced at the book titles and the fishing gear. The books were fiction titles and the fishing gear consisted of a few inexpensive spinning rods, a tackle box with some rusting lures and jigs, and some other miscellaneous bait fishing items. As I turned to go an older woman approached me.
