Does anyone have any experience with these ALTA’s? Took the shoe by mr. Blackwoods and left with some more classic dry fly stories and a new spey pole.

I was going to ask if such a big stick was overkill for rust heads but your FCTP post cleared things up. Carry on :cool

Close, my old man is and I learned on his gear. It was all fun and games until I started using clickers and having to switch hands whilst the lines backlashing

I received a parcel in the mail recently.

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.
