For me the aesthetics were in the fatty fresh fillets I was going to cook on my grill.
Now I find myself drooling over a cobalt blue T&T rod and a bronze Galvan reel.
I'm sometimes daydreaming about a $750 Abel reel on a $1500 Tom Morgan rod.
I have boxes of little insect simulations. I hate insects!
What have I gotten myself into?
