went to Cabelas
WOW. That's a fly fishermans candystore. I know it's like the Lowe's of fly fishing and it stresses all the local shops, but it's still quite impressive. I spend $500 in the matter of an hour on all kinds of toys. I picked up a fly tying beginner set as I've never tied a fly before. It's quite interesting. I think I found a new sub-hobby of fly fishing. One day with it and I sucessfully tied a Black wooly bugger, a hares-ear nymph and a pheasant-tail nymph. They all look half decent too. I also hooked myself up with a set of GII dry+ waders from the bargain-cave for $72 becasue they had a marker spot on them near the label at the top. I searched for a rip or a tear near the mark but found nothing. If it does leak up there, who cares, I'll never test them to that depth anyway. I also got a cheap Reddington 8 weight combo, a CSR reel, wading boots, a full brim hat, and some accessories.
