Default Today I spent way too much on a new rod and reel and didnít feel any guilt

In fact it felt pretty, pretty good knowing She Who Must Be Obeyed will never find out. I deserve the best.

Trust me, she already knows and is about to retaliate with a shoe purchase that is going to make you cry.

As it has been said on here many times before

When I die, I hope my wife doesn't sell me fly rods for what I told her I paid for them.

I just got through setting up a Reddington Predator 8wt with a Behemoth reel with spare spool and a floating line on one spool, full sink on the other. Sodium free...
My wife knows exactly how much it cost. She paid the bill. I'm working 2 jobs, I'll buy it if I want it bad enough.

Default How to Buy Rods

Back when my two daughters were in high school there was an endless parade of proms, spring dances, fall dances, and holiday dances. One may NOT wear the same dress twice! So I walk in one day with a new rod and both daughters and their mother happened to be sitting near the door. I was greeted by my wife with, "and just what is that?"

I replied that it was a new fly and immediately challenged for how much did it cost?

My response was that it cost about the same as a prom dress but I would sure as he11 use it more than once!

Then I ran for the back of the house .........................

If you think slipping a new fishing pole by the wife is tough, try doing it with a guitar. The "oh this old thing" line does not work when you are holding a hot new Gibson.

Always and I mean always, only bring in new rods when you are returning from a fishing trip. Just act like you have always had it and put it away.


You can play with it when she goes to bed.
