So it really just came down to who introduced thiers first.
I see a resemblance in the Model "T" and my 1987 SAAB 900. They both have 4 wheels, doors,a steering wheel, seats...
Perhaps Ford should sue SAAB?
I thought monopolies were illegal. No?
I brought a folding stripping basket to The Vineyard last year, and putting 75' of flyline in it while holding the rest outside, was a surefire recipe for a tangle on almost every shoot, even when I carefully coiled the line in the bottom of the mesh bag.
I bought the Orvis tub the next day.
After cleaning the lube out of my rectum I had a nice night of casting, but I can't say I was happy getting raped on a $3 plastic tub. Oh alright, I'll be nice... A $7 plastic bucket
Sully, how are all yalls?
