    But for any emperor wannabes or budding Bishops I'd say a purple rod and reel could extend their influence and thus increase their catch rate. I chose 'Yes' but only in a matt finish.

    Perhaps this is a cautionary tale of what can happen if you overdo your support of your wife's love of purple. Her husband will probably be buried in a purple casket.
    I know of that house. been a while since i've seen it though.

    Yeah, it is in Clarksville. I used to live a couple blocks from it toward the old skylift.

    Purple rod and complementing reel?

    Sparkles? Glitter? Bass-boat level of metal flake?

    Am a pragmatist.... Does the set up throw the line the way I need it to? Will it be easily seen in a predominantly earth-tone environment? Will it catch me more fish? Is it the "best bang for the buck" rod in it's class?

    I fish a lot of small, tight, shallow places for mostly resident browns.... the best I can hope for is to be seen and not noticed.

    Then again, if it makes her happy, IT IS GOOD!
    (Getting an Al reel stripped and re-powdered wouldn't he a financial horror show. Also, as far as the reel goes, if you are into doing the work yourself look into the Al anodizing kits from Caswell Plating.
    I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message, and if you would like to reach me by phone, please hang up now.
