Lots of people look at it with much disdain just like some do toward noodling or hillbilly hand fishing.
I like to fish with pool noodle flagging jugs myself. Lots of fun and really no different than a big boat that has a dozen rods out drifting. Some people think that everybody that uses them just go off and leave them floating around forever. That's totally false but you ain't gonna change some peoples minds. It's a legal means to fish and that's all that counts.
Infidel and proud of it.
From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."
Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
