There, he can communicate with total clarity. At the moment he's flaked out on top of 'our bed' with his head on the other pillow.

Sorry, dont vote for people I don't know, but will pass on this tidbit, my wife was of a similar mindset at one point.

I got around this by garage sales and craigslist - instead of buying new rods I started looking for them when I went "treasure hunting" adn find rods for anywhere from $5 to $25 (depending on how good they were) or I would barter for them on CL for zero dollars out of pocket.

Being mechanically inclined, I have flipped a few projects now, motorcycles, boat motors, etc, for way more than I had in them, and have used that money to get what I wanted including a decent dirt bike for my son, one for me, a couple boats, a few antique boat motors, fly rods, waders, even things that go bang.

It wasnt that she didn't want me having fly rods, she just didn't want me spending a couple hundred at a pop to get one, so now I have projects to keep me busy, a quiver of fly rods, a few vices, a bamboo wall hanger that looks good over my desk and is still fishable, etc.

Just a thought on a way to get a rod or two without forking out big bucks. I have learned over the years that just cuz it is last years (or last decades) rod or reel doesn't prevent it from catching fish, and old fiberglass fly rods can be had for a song at garage sales like $5 to $10 bucks.

d
imxer and mcnerney like this.

I think maybe you guys are being a little too harsh. Some guys are just quiet and don't talk as much. It's not as though our new friend just joined the forum. He's been here for awhile, and was genuine in his request. I liked the story he wrote to accompany it. Maybe if we treated him nicer he would participate more on the forum. What if we made a deal that we'd vote for him if he would commit to being more active? That seems like a fair trade, right?

Voted. Good luck man! Welcome to the forum. I look forward to getting to know you more.

Very reasonable post. Ben is a cool guy who is on some local fly fishing forums and has done me a favor or two in the past. Not to mention that there is no point in beating a dead horse when he already mentioned that he got the point. I'd like to see the two rods go to Eunan and Ben.
