[report]So since there are no Sage dealers near by at the moment I loaded up the family and Headed about an hour NE from me to Cabela's. I called ahead & reserved the rod. Here's the view of the front of the dump & a few of my understanding family.
Image
Onward to seal the deal. Why yes it is just what I called for. Nice grip honey.
Image
Check ok? Got a pen? Are you kidding me? Do you realize what will come of this?
Image
Now may I check things out before my wife realizes what a new Z Axis costs?
Image
Yes it's all there.
Image
Done Deal honey!
Image
Off to the indoor Trout Stream. The Moose is loose.
Image
Crikey Mate!
Image
Everyone Run Like Hell!
Image

Image
A little Beaver action to add to the report.
Image
Had some lunch there. This is the Where's my visor? face.
Image
The ride home. Not pie, but Blueberry Cheese Cake with my new best friend close to hand.
Image
Here's some little water allot of guys fish around here. Bass I think.
Image

Reminds me of the LL Bean store in Freeport. Good post...I have had days like that. Makes you feel like your parents took you to a toy store...except it is your money you are spending....but don't phrase it that way to the wife....

Well I did take a giant dump after lunch. I felt bad for the fellow patrons of the restroom. I seriously had to give myself a courtesy flush. :evil:

Damn Salmo...the wife even drove home so you could eat blueberry cheesecake. What weight is the Z-axis, and what kind of reel you going to use?

MB...hit the nail on the head, a cool wife makes it a whole lot easier.

Is that a snarky teenager distancing himself off to the left? I know the look, I have one as well, wears shorts when its about 10 below and can't do anything without a heavy sigh or a wellplaced ugh.

Well played, sir.

One of your fellow Salters is hooking me up with a Danielsson 4Seven. I can't wait to get my mits on that.

Yes- one of my 2 step sons. The other and my other little one had to make haste to the pisser. All of the kids are good as can be expected. However the oldest in the pic. is just 13. Fun is just starting there.

Aren't they all cool in the beginning? Once they shit that 1st kid out, the devil takes over. You have to wait for a break in the storm to have a day like Salmon.....I had one 3 weeks ago...pointed out to the wife that there was a sale on Renzetti vices. She said "Why don't you get one?"....WTF?!?!? I had the order placed in less than 3 minutes, before her senses took over.

so this morning i tell the wife that i'm going to Miami in April to go bonefishing....

she says, "i thought you were going to Key West in March?"
i said, "i am, but that's for permit."
then she says, "but i thought you were going to the keys in May?"
i said, "i am, but that's for tarpon..."

she just shakes her head. that's what I'm talking about.


by the way RedFAngler, the first turd'll be three months in week....still no devil.

She's still in the euphoric stage, unless you have something figured out that no one I know has. You have one key thing down, keep it steady. If you lapse on anything you like, they will try to take it away. All of the water has been frozen for 4 months out here, so my 2-3 times/week out on the river trips have disappeared. I told her I was going out today and got "Oh, OK, I guess I'll talk to you later then"...fuck that, I said "Yup" and jammed. I have to break her in every Spring.

I was just like you 3.5 years ago...Telling all of my friends that my wife was different....they smiled and shook their heads. The only advice they gave me? Pick one thing and never budge on it, it is yours and make them understand that you will never bend.

You'll learn just like I did.

So I got to tinkering the other day... and calcul[…]
