If you need one of the pen rods for fishing,they have them for cheap in different combos..spinning,flyfishing all about $18 or buy the different parts to make a complete set..

www.heavy-and-slow dot com..for people from Illinois... ;)

Tjhat reminds me..got a couple pair of Vasque trail running shoes going out to a friend in Monticello in size 15( :shock: ) today..close to you?He can't seem to find anything in his size around there for cheap..so i grabbed him a couple pairs.They did(do?) have another pair of higher top Goretex Vasque size 15 pretty much brand new...but he couldn't wear them becaue of some past ankle injury(bone rubs)...They also had a pair of 16 Columbias I was thinking of getting and making a pontoon boat out of those... :lol:

Maybe lightweight backpacking trailrunners in size 15, or size 16, worn with a velcro ankle wrap sold at rehab hospital stores...
