Default Just bought a 1 wt!

Brothers, I have an important safety tip......Never go to ebay when you are depressed on your birthday. I did and bought a TFO Finesse 1 wt with reel, line, tube etc. As far as bad choices go it beats waking up next to an over weight chick whose name you don't remember (don't ask). So I am looking on the bright side. I am in for $250 on a rod I didn't need, but it ought to be fun on the bluegills. I willl post a review when I get it.

TFO finesse is a great series of rods for the price IMO. I have the 8'9" 3-weight and love it.

Careful on the overweight women comment -- you have clearly demonstrated that you are not a married man with that comment, and whoever you woke up next to might have been your best chance!

Now, if you can find a nice woman who fly fishes and could possibly end up in a situation where she'd wake up next to you, you better strongly reconsider your "requirements" .

Hey, I managed to screw up a relationship with a med student who fly fished, had her pilots license, liked blue grass and had the libido of a 14 year old boy. Affter messing up that bad, I figure one off the cuff remark won't hurt me as it won't get any worse. Seriously I'm fishing a one weight because I lready lost "the one that got away" so its all C@R now.
