The Good Ol USA Ain't What It Used To Be ...
when Dudley was a kid, you could go into any hardware store, marina, bait store or department store and buy a quality galvanized steel two piece floating minnow bucket for a nominal amount of money. The bucket would be marked with made in the USA and if taken care of and not abused could last the lifetime of it's owner. Dudley has an old Falls City minnow bucket that is decades old. Dudley can not even remember where it came from or when it was purchased but Dudley has had it forever it seems like. Dudley better hang on to it. They don't make them like that any more., Now they are nearly all made of plastic and Dudley would be willing to bet they won't last more than a season or two. There is one company that makes a metal minnow bucket that is close to the one above but it is made in China and imported into the USA. Damn thing costs close to twenty five bucks and no doubt is not as well built as the old USA made buckets. Dudley misses the good old days.
