    when you finally pick up that crusty t shirt from the floor of your room and find a small brown paper bag loaded with $93.84 worth of tippet, leaders, hooks, and beads. and 1 thingamabobber.

    i have no recollection of ever buying this although the receipt reveals 2/11/09......

    i would never do such a thing.

    within the realm of my closet i also unearthed half a jar of peanut butter, my spare stripping basket, some microwavable popcorn, an unopened 25lb bag of protein mix, a new package of AAA batteries and my missing stash of TUMS.

    baller.

    today was a good day.

    Isn't it great to find things that you didn't know you had, but only if I could find my other socks to make all my pairs that I'm missing

    Washing machines/dryers eat socks, I swear.

    The only time I ever find hooks is when they are buried in the carpet underneath my tying desk, and the stick in my foot:mad:

    *That's* where my little brown bag ended up!

    Seriously, I see nothing wrong with blackouts while standing in flyshops. I end up with fly rods and stuff afterwards.

    Bwa ha ha ha

    It makes me feel old getting excited about a brown paper bag that contains fly fishing paraphernalia rather than other stuff that was a "hobby" at one time.I hope the day never comes where I'm so out of the loop I can't find anyone to sell me fly fishing goods.I'll suck your dick for a 6x 9ft leader.

    He must own scuba gear, Was in a boat of shore. That guys creepy....... But I did find the rod floating later. It was a couple years ago before I was a fly-fishin convert, and the bobber floated up and I grabbed it.

    I know I have a problem when this is the only site I visit. Fishing over porn, those are my priorities.

    Seriously! You can't remember buying almost a hundred dollars worth of tippet, beads and hooks....a couple of months ago. Wow. You must be a man of many means. Also, clean your room! Seriously!

    I find stuff in my workshop I don't remember buying all of the time. It's getting entertaining, kind of like a treasure hunt. I'd accuse my wife of planting the stuff but I won't like that outcome. Besides, her memory is starting to fool with her, too. Geez, what a pair.

    If you run across any more brown paper bags and are afraid to find out what's in them, send me a PM and I'll come pick it up and dispose of it for you.

    I know what ya mean when ya find a stash you had forgotten.
    I was looking for some spin gear for a fishing trip with the grandsons when I came across a small bag with 4 packs of 9' leaders, two spools of 3X, two of 2X, and one 0X.
    Just like Christmas all over again.

    Good haul! The unopened bag of protein powder is hilarious.

    I found a pretty good haul in my dry bag yesterday but I can't really talk about it...

    I remember defrosting the freezer and finding a big bag of dirt weed and another bag of peyote buttons. No idea where they came from. Party time.

    Sean - You think it's bad now... wait until you someday are married and you never take a store receipt and stash the stuff immediately upon entering the garage. Then it's a damn treasure hunt the night before your next fishing trip.

    When will the fly shops learn to NOT put their logo on the bags. That's just asking for interrogation! simple brown paper bag is all that's needed.

    I know things are getting bad for me when I tie up a dozen flies -- say, for the evening caddis hatch on the Deschutes -- and then, when I go to stash them in my vest, I find two different boxes that already have a row or two of the same fly....

    Is this how it's gonna be from now on? I'm only 48! Have four decades of fishing corroded my mind that much?
