Then Jason gave me another rod. I obtained another reel (for the rod Jason gave me, of course). And now I got this rod.

I can't see it stopping now.

Problem is, she doesn't either. Especially since she caught me looking at eBay again last night looking for a rod that I can use for steelheads. And I also need another reel.

You are absolutely correct: She simply does not understand. Tell me again why is it more important to pay the rent on the kids' apartments in college than me buying some more equipment?

Oh, and I also get the rolling eyes and shaking head when she sees me lawn cast. She thinks it is especially funny whenever I get hooked on one of the tree branches that overhang the yard.
