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.

That's a good thing. Since it's price is right rules, closest without going over, we can drag it out for 5 more and I'm golden!

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.

My nippers were free from Abel SO as much people are picking on them it is great advertising and more reason to buy them They are the best free $100 nippers I will ever have.

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.
