Thumbs up Great Weekend

I started the weekend by going to Mohegan Sun in CT with the girlfreind to drop my piddly $100 bucks in the slot machines ( not a big gambler ).The whole ride up I was debating if I should get a new rod for my the trip to the Cape in June. Being that I own a total of 15 rods and reels ( spinning & fly )my new girlfriend made this note " Do you really need another? " Point well taken plus I did not really have the cash. After 3hrs of slots we decided to leave but not before I put my last $20 in a $1 slot machine. Well, the powers that be must have decided that I deserved a new 9wt 5pc RPLXI because I won $1,800 !!!!!!!!!!!! I was hoping around like fat on a hot griddle with visions of swirling stripers and my new rod bent to the cork. I picked up the rod and a Ross BG5 to go with it on Sunday. SWEET set up!

Now the fishing report for Norwalk:

Monday was foggy and rainy but the water was like a mirror. I walked out 1/4 mile on a sand flat @ The Mill Pond to be greeted by a guy in his Hewes flats boat and an acre of swirling fish. They turned out to be HUGE Hickory Shad.The way they were jumping and cartwheeling I felt like Flip casting to baby Tarpon on some exotic island. No Stripes but I picked up 14 Hickory's and the biggest Sea Robbin I had ever seen! All in all a Great Weekend

True

Very True Striblue! Try explaining that line of thinking to a woman who thinks fishing involves a bunch of guys sitting around drinking beer,cursing women and using worms for bait! She's the most wonderful girl in the world but hasn't yet grasped the concept of flyfishing yet. I am doing my best to make her see the light. Before long I hope to have her throwing and 8/0 Bunker fly 100ft+...................... a man can dream can't he?

Fishermans Codebook Rule #67B subparagraph 2a clearley states: "Never divulge to your significant other, or talkative neighbors, the exact number of rods in ones possesion"

Damn!

No one told me to study that chapter!!! Nor did any one tell me about Rule#82c subparagraph 4e " Never divulge the exact cost of equipment purchased.If significant other should requests such information, round down minimum of $300."

She saw the price tag of my new rod and reel and nearly....... well let me just say that the Doctor said he had removed many shoes from that area over the years and there would be no lasting effects.

Speaking of shoes...

Why not tell her that that next rod is like her next pair of shoes? After all, how many pairs of shoes do you need?

Make certain she's in a really good mood before you go there, however, or another trip to the ER for a shoe-removal may be in order.

Seriously, good deal! Congrats for a winning weekend.

Best regards,

-Doc
