Default new member..... new toy......

greetings.

new member? well, sorta...

new toy? HECK YES!!.... i just picked up a winston bII-mx in 9' 5-weight..... paired it with a lamson guru 2.0 and some rio gold line....

i'm so excited and i just had to share the news with folks who would understand my joy because my wife just scratches her head when i talk fly fishing to her..... "it's just a fishing pole," she replies.

much nymphing and streamer fishing in the near future, i predict....

Welcome! I look forward to reports and photos from you.

I don't know how many outfits you have, but it sounds like you will have a hard time explaining and reasoning (to her, at least) new 'acquisitions'-- just like my house....

That's why I keep my gear in the part of the basement she never goes. (Next to the lawn mover. Surprise surprise)

"Is that a new rod?!"

"What, that old thing...?" hehehehe

Not to hijack the thread, but: True Story---

I have a good friend who is a member of the local Ferrari club. He jokes that every new Ferrari he buys HAS to be red-- lest his wife will realize that there is a new car in the garage... The scary part: Knowing this couple the way I do, I'm convinced that she really has no idea how many cars are down there....

Fortunately for him-- I think red is the only color they come in...

thanks everyone for the comments.... can't wait to get out there and throw some big bugs and streamers for fat bows, browns and maybe an occasional hammer-handle northern.
