Windshield wiper. Swear to Christ last time I did it, my brain misfired and I turned them on. Luckily no harm done, just shit my pants.

Was thinking of one of these. Does it make me look like a poseur? https://denveroutfitters.com/wp-content ... ault-8.jpg

Yup, this is part of the experience. I have done this at least 4 times.

Fool me once.....

I have to admit, on longer trips or on rocky roads I would put a sock/rag just before the magnet.....as to prevent the graphite from continually bouncing on the same spot.

If it was fiberglass rod, I would break it down and throw it in the bed, no protection needed.


Speaking of that, I had a Eagle Claw/(new) Medalist combo I used for trout on the NF whilst checking on the cattle in the gator. I used to put the neoprene sheath around the medalist, only because it cost me $80. Other than that, I used to hammer over all sorts of shit in that valley with nothing else in the bed other than that reel case and a box of flies.....caught a lot of fish on that setup over those two summers. Still have it, but not really a use for it.

Edit (CE) - I constructed that setup so I wouldn't be out of sorts if it fell out of the bed, got run over, stolen, or stomped by a cow. My price limit was $150 for the full deal, including line. I think I came in at around $160 if I counted backing and leader. Of course I still have it, if I took a $1200 setup down there, I would have snapped or lost it the first week.

$34.99 - Eagle Claw 4 wt.
$79.99 - Medalist Reel - 3 wt
$45.00 - SA Heritage fly line
$4.95 - Rio 4X


EDIT (CE) - Just did the actual math using today's google pricing[above] - $164.93. BOOM.

no exaggerating!

No one cares, I should just write this shit in emails addressed to myself, it would serve the same purpose.
cool story, bro.

Google it. PVC and igloo lunch mate for the reels, check out goodwill for that part.
...Or make a friend that can get a pro deal, and even then.
Not worth it in my opinion.
