I would have thrown a bunch of rocks in the water to scare off the fish
Cheeky products are much more popular down in Florida and on the East coast. I can't see what sets them apart from any other reel, but, I don't pay those kinds of prices for something that just holds line. Then again, I don't routinely use a drag to stop 200 pound, pissed off, coked out tarpon either.
I read the title of this post and expected something very different. The story starts out as I expected. Only where you started to describe what he was wearing, I expected to you describe some form of wilderness NUDITY.
A "howdy with a hand shake and name exchange" would have gotten ya half way home to a poaching report; instead of the usual "how's the fishin' " intro. But, I'm sure the hand was probably trembling/clenching in anger. [wink]
Don't know about their quality — I haven't tested any Cheekys—but that's a $400 reel so if the poacher paid $600 he is not only a criminal, but an idiot.
Was he from Bend and work for an ironic t-shirt company?
I know how you feel. I ran into this cheeky wader and totally lost my cool. She was in a fly section only.
Nice one Freestone... LOL
On another subject: this is why people don't want fishing spots posted on the internet.
Dinkus poachers will ruin spots and close down areas, unbelievable.
Sweet...that's enough to make me forget about fishing, or at least try to help her.
The reel ? ugly as a dropped pie.
As for the guy ?
One of the new gen Y fly fishing punks ?
Tatts like they've been rolled around in wet comics ?
Dressed like bearded rappers ?
Glistening with bling, piercings and head mounted cameras ?
Promoting a video that's long on self and short on content ?
Whoa, what's with the Jeff and Todd hate?
Eventually... I got around to looking at the fish... what the hell is it? A chub?
Guess, as far as the photo subject is concerned, it doesn't matter.
Someone should help the poor dear. She seems to be struggling with that fish.
Well, I can say that I have far more appreciation of the cheeky wader than I have for that Cheeky reel!
