Sliced Bread

Soon-to-be, best-thing-since. Or maybe I'm just jonesing hard already 2 days after 9 of working it...well, trying anyway.

I guess it could be both....

"And just like that, I was thinking about selling all of my single-handed fly rods..."

I would be remiss if I didn't give Alex at least a little flak here; I mean sure, the guy can fish, he can write, he can tie, etc., etc. But I'm seeing a little flip-flopping from Mr. "I don't need no stinking 2-hander, leave me alone all you band-wagoners!" In the end, seems like it may have been more sour grapes than anything. Musta been hard forming that D-loop with the size of the chip on your shoulder there daytripper.

And now he's playing the "This two handed business has soul" card? Baptized and confirmed? Now you're some kind of bonafide warm-and-fuzzies long-rodder (well, long-ish, it is only a switch)? Sell off your single-handers? I don't buy it and nobody else does either.

Eh, who am I to judge? Aside from the fact that I didn't try to hide my interest and admiration of the style, I guess we're in the same boat. If I were in a position to, I'd welcome you to the club. As it is, I'll be happy to stand by you…


42 hours (roughly) until my feet are in this. Round II is on. If I ever finish pulling and packing my gear.

Happy Vet's Day and thank you to all who have served.

I've got a box full of hairwings
And a pocket full of bantams
I know I won't be fishing every one
Because the patterns that control your mind
Those patterns take away my time
