  1. I'm sure that we all feel a sense of relief. Not that it's over, but he's a tough boy.
  2. Same sentiment here, Dick. Good luck; stick with it and you'll be back in the saddle before you know it.
  3. If you buy cheap braid then you have cheap braid.
  4. Confused yet?
  5. There's nothing like a big reel.
  6. I've always bought bulk line from Tackle Direct - they have a great selection and give good service.
  7. You have a strange way of writing, John. If I didn't think that you are old....I'd think that you are young. Just sayin'
  8. No anger, John. But, of the reel model of which you are speaking, probably very few have failed. It sounds like you really put yours to the test and while disappointing, it's hardly shocking that the occasional bad thing happens. I love my Galvans but have to admit that I've thought of sending my 8 back for a tuneup. If there was a reel which could never fail....few of us could afford it.
  9. So.....NASA and Morton Thiokol couldn't get this just right but some fishing reel manufacturer should? Every time? Money back guarantee for discerning customers like you?
  10. I nominate this for "Strange Thread" for the month of May.
  11. Nice rig. Be sure to try a Cortland Sylk.
  12. What a silly mistake. It's the other way around.
  13. Tie something that looks like a pellet of Purina Trout Chow.
  14. You hooked a cat? That's cold.
  15. I almost always encounter some 6wt weather on a trip to Grand Bahama.
