Re: Real wintertime boredom ?
I keep all that stuff that comes with, too. Whether I could lay my hands on it on short notice is another question. Since my 4 and 6 wt rods "live" in a double rod caddy the tubes for those rods collect a lot of dust. I have to mail the 6 wt in for repair so O opened the tube yesterday. I'd completely forgotton that it came with a sock.
Only took me 50 years or so to learn to staple the reciept in the instruction book and file it. Actually, what it took was being hosed for a warranty replacement from Black and Decker.
