A Christmas present.

My wife was home when I opened the box.

Wife: "What is it?"

Jose: "It's.... it's a bucket."

Wife: "A bucket?"

Jose: "A bucket."

Wife: "What kind of bucket?"

Jose: "A five gallon bucket."

Wife: "Like the kind they have at Home Depot?"

Jose: "Yes... but different."

Wife: "How is it different?"

Jose: "It's not orange, and it's got a YETI label on it."

Wife: "Does that make it better?"

Jose: "Quite the opposite."

Wife: "Did it come with a lid?"

Jose: "Apparently not."

Wife: "So someone sent you a bucket with no lid. Just the bucket."

Jose: "Yes. Just the bucket."

Wife leaves the room, shaking her head.

Later that day...

Wife: "I looked up that bucket online. It sells for $40. The lid is sold separately, and runs another $30. Why would anyone spend that kind of money on a bucket?"

Jose: "Because it's got a YETI label on it."

Wife leaves the room, shaking her head.

I've no doubt the person who sent it to me meant well, but I would have been happier with a phone call.

Currently I neither want nor need any more useless shit.

Should that change, I can always just steal stuff from Mitch.
Todd has one that he uses as his mobile tying bucket.........I have been jealous of him for a year.

It would cost more to ship that thing than it is worth...............He should give it to a hobo to use as a shitter instead of the sidewalk.

So back when all my shit got knicked by a granny robber I was pretty surprised to see how overwhelmingly generous drakians were. I now use a 6-7wt reel all summer long sent by gank. The other one that amazed me was a 13’9” 8wt Sage VT2 sent over by Yard.

I’ve wanted to use that rod so bad, but our rivers simply don’t call for a rod that big so I’ve just been eye balling it and smiling at it every time I walk by her in my basement. I really wanted to put her to use, but always seem to grab the lighter sticks. I decided to do a swap with a guy on speypages- who was willing to trade me his 13’ 7wt vt2 for Yards 8wt.

I strapped my system 2 on there, feels righteous, and am taking it out to the deschutes to fish with Wendy, streamin and YP all week.

Thanks Yard

Oh, but no invite to the river an hour from my house? I see how it is....

That rod has been passed around this place like a drunk chick on spring break. Not sure I deserve any thanks. Glad you were able to swap it out for a 7wt, should be a much better rod as that 8wt was a phone pole.

Not sure when you guys will be on the D but I might be kicking around out there next week so if you see a redneck truck with a plywood window(thanks to that fucking road) say howdy.

Got this for Christmas. Thought I would hate the wheels and want to return it, but I don't hate it. Still sits flat in a boat, etc. Any of yinz have one of these? Should I exchange it for the bucket?

Bought myself a little Christmas present too... :coffee
