Man, you guys are just plain cold. He says he needs help and you just feed the addiction
By the way, you can find some awesome deals on Craigslist. I got 2 fly reels and 7 fly boxes with flies for $50 one time.
And nothing like tying your own unique flies and catching fish on them either.
Sorry, we are all the same and have no cure for the addiction so we try to feed it a little at a time. A 30 dollar fly line on sale on Ebay here, Some fly hooks and hackle from BPs next week, a Cabela's glass rod on sale the following week...............................
We ask ourselves the same questions. If I buy that 9 ft rod will I get more distance or feel or a better presentation? If I tie that fly in white will I catch more fish than Robert Hunter?
