Can't hurt to do it.. Can't have it work without trying..

Anyone want to give me like a.. $500..gift??

I would like to buy a 2 or 3wt rod w/ reel & line.. also need a spare spool for the 8wt and a skagit or skandi shooting setup ..

Thanks in advance!

I am scared if I ask the wife she will murder me or break all my rods.. Something about buying a boat/trailer(which took her parking spot in the garage), 3 casting rods and reels, 3 spinning rods and reels, 2 fly rods and reels, waders/boots, and tackle/flies ALL this year... I just don't know if I can talk her into anything more without her killing or leaving me and she stole all the CC's from me to prevent me from doing just this, buying more fishing stuff hahahha.

:D

I think the wife was figuring I would spend around $500 bucks this year on fishing...... I think I over shot that maybe 6 or 8 times.. AND THE YEAR ISN'T OVER!!!

I feel you i took out a credit card just to max out in the same day i got it to help with the boat fund. i would suggest saving up for it and it will be that much better when you get it.

Agreed but I just felt like panhandling for fishing gear!

Wow! "You've gotta lot of explaining to do Lucy" Sounds like you need to lay low for awhile and work out an extortion plan.

I have a 4' long, 1-4lb ultalight ugly stick with 500 series shimano that holds like 40 yards of 4lb line at most.. SUPER FUN ROD.. I caught and landed a 20" brooder on it last summer! What a battle and that's what I want on a fly rod!
