Why is it every time I go to the tackle store, I buy things I didn't go there for, I forget things I went for and always spend more than I thought I would?

I blame it on old-timers condition, but it's fun.

You have to make a list and stick to it. It's hard to do! Trust me.

I thought I was the only one that did that. I cant tell you how many times I have to put down what I came for because I found something better. I hate going to APT because I see new great looking lures there each time I go.

Because it's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have. At least that's what I tell myself.

I think lures attract us more than fish.

Well when I go into tech stores, home depot, or tackle stores, I loose all control of all my bodily functions, so maybe it has something to do with that.

thats natural pelican. it will eventually stop happening when you walk into a store and you realize you have more stuff than they do. thats when you know your collection is complete for a little while anyway. my wife calls it hoarding, i call it being prepared.
