I didn't stop because of her, but told my wife I wanted to start fishing again this year.

 

My Christmas gifts included a 300 yd spool of fireline, a basspro gift card and a Penn fathom 15.!!  

 

I think she's pretty supportive!!

Thought you were going to say she got you a 21 ft center console, but then again, you're off to a good start, and there's always next year!

I've said this on other threads.  I actually have a strategy.  I'm so obnoxious, especially in the spring, she can't wait for fishing to begin so she can get rid of me for a few hours every day.

The Fathom 15 is a great little reel...you'll love it :th:

 

Did you get rid of all yer stuff when you 'quit' fishing? :eek:  If memory serves...you had a LOT of fishing stuff at one point, no?

Proof the wife listens to my ramblings. The Luxor showed up in the mail Saturday, and the wife had the Kastmasters under the tree. She said she “loved the shape” of the lures! Found both lures in a junk shop....

Not surprised that your wife likes the Kastmasters as the gentleman who founded Acme was originally in the jewelry business.

I did.  When I started buying again in last month or so I had no rod over 8.5'
