Fishing Reels on display...

Am I the only one or does anyone else love their reels so much that they are decor during the off season? 

I have them sitting on a table in my room and as I walk by I pick them up, turn the handle a few times and just smile. I just sit there and stare at them sometimes imagining them putting in work.

Anyone else have such an infatuation with their fishing stuff...not just reels maybe...or is it just me?

Ok I get it but i'm divorced and work in the car business (retail), every second i'm off from work i'm with the kids. Can't venture too far but once a year when I take a selfish vaca for myself to fish. Off season:bonk:

By decor do you mean....rods lying against couches and reels on every flat surface?

If so....count me in

OK. in this case we can excuse you.

Your request for separation granted but divorce from fishing not!

:agree:

:thanks:  I know my 7yr old and my 5yr old daughters would love to camp out in the truck for 2-3 days but I would have to stop fishing to feed them and stuff.

Soon enough they won't want to hang out with the old man anymore....trying to put my time in now!

I enjoy machines that are durable, well designed, and pleasing to the eye.

 

In the bedroom some of my reels, knives, and firearms are always within reach so I can pick them up and admire them.

 

No, your infatuation with your reels is not yours alone.

BIG fire proof gun safe. May have more $$$ in reels than guns (actually, not even close - more $$$ in guns)

I don't display them.  But I have a long commute to work and I usually have a reel on the seat next to me.  If I am at a stop,  I may pick it up and crank it a few times and then put it back in the seat.  When I drive 3 or my 4 kids,  they will do the same.   The last child thinks it silly and immature.  Don't know where I went wrong with him.
