  1. No problem here. I can see how one might get confused.
  2. Spig, give Knight my best wishes for a speedy recovery.
  3. This right here is how it's done.
  4. No reason other than I am older now and don't fish as much. The DNA 9' is all I need. I started out with the Shimano Ultegra 5500 reel on it. Then I read about the new Diawa Ballistic LT6000. That reel is perfect on that rod. I did buy a used 11' 2 to 6 Genesis here in the BS&T that rod will fish bait and get the Ultegra reel. Two rods and 2 reels plus line purchased for less than one top shelf reel.
  5. I can afford any rod made. I simply preferred the ODM DNA 9' rod.
  6. I just read that it takes all of 16 years for the body to repair the damage that smoking does. So it's imperative that you quit and get started at the repairs. Good luck with it.
  7. Any one of the resorts in Punta Cana.
  8. Take a close look at the ODM, D.N.A. line of rods. The 9 footer is perfect.
  9. Way back we had a thread in the Tavern titled " Do you crumple or fold?" While not fishing related it gave us great insight into each other's make up.
  10. Don't worry Dave, they stop in New Jersey for a few years to learn the lay of the land.
  11. That pretty much cleared that up.
  12. We need someone to contact Bob and see if he can do it. We used to have Glub do it where he is right down that way. Anyone else down in the Bayville area who can stop into the Shady Rest and inquire.
  13. Yes, sorry for dropping the ball the past couple years. I wasn't feeling all that great. I tried last year but Bob couldn't fit us in. Let's do it.
  14. "Don't ask me how I know." That is one powerful mental image. I bet you only did it once!
  15. If the rod is in fact still for sale I will take it pending a review. Cash. Let me know when you want to meet up.
