No known cure at this time, many suffering. Send help, need lures, waders, bags, rods, reel, line, etc. It never ends. If i stop at a garage sale and there is a Hopkins for sale, I'll buy it, don't want it or need it but I can't leave it, it must come home with me. Alarming condition.

There's a 12 step process.......

Ice fishing is the first to go.

Then conventional freshwater. 

Then conventional saltwater.

Then freshwater spinning gear.

Then saltwater jigging rod and jigs

Then saltwater plugging rod.

Then the Hahns.

Then the Pichneys.

Then the fly rods.

Then the Medalists.

Then the ........no no NOT the Hardys!!!!!!

 

Adjust the above to suit your own personal disfunction but remember:

My DH claims I have more reels than Imelda Marcos had shoes. Some women collect shoes. I collect reels. There's a problem?

First step is admitting you are powerless, and personally I’m not there… yet.
 

I still say “no” to myself more often than I want, but “yes” more often than I should. 
 

But if you dangle a spinner at the right price, I’ll definitely start tweakin

Been there...

 

I’ve taken a minimalist mindset to things over the years and always try for 80% return on 20% effort. Would I love a VS? You betcha, but I’ll suffer a Penn. 

 

As for tackle and the “stuff”, I have X number of spots to hang rods. If I want a new one, something goes. I have a large cabinet deemed my “toy box” that’s full of all my outdoor gear. Out with old, in with new, but never another cabinet. 

 

Works for me.
