When I was doing this, I got some serious Redhorse. I have one I should have weighed. It was a freakin Monster with a capital M.

I hear that if you make exactly an 88ft cast while holding a pair of abel nippers... that you will travel through time

That is what happened to one of the owners of Orvis. They were knocked back 40 years with that cast and that is the reason they still sell the kind of clothes they do.

Thank you guys for sewing a wild seed in my mind of all the things in life I just couldn't be caught on the river without.

I will settle this 12page debate once and for all. I bought me a pair and my buddy a pair. Since I bought new boots and a Nautilus reel I got a Lanyard thrown in once all those native Brookies realize I accessorized my Abel nippers in red to match the sealed drag on my silver Nautilus they will be striking my flies with reckless abandon just knowing I have mad skills.
