So I went out to a lake today and did a little fishing. I take my fly rods along no matter what kind of fishing I'm planning on doing. I have a heavy rod - 7/8 and a light rod 5/6. I have Kufa rods and Okuma reels. I MAY have $300 in the rods, reels and line all told. So I runa cross a guy there who is also fly fishing in his toon. I stop and start up a conversation with him thinking maybe I can learna little from this guy. He has PREMO gear. Orvis reels - Hexagraph rods - just a plethora of high dollar gear. So we're talking and he looks over at my fly gear. I spent what I was comfortable spending and I've had success with my low price equipment. After he sees my gear he goes on a 10 minute rant where his only point is to tell me how I must suck as a fisherman because I have inexpensive gear. Now for those few of you who know me - this does not sit well with me nor will I let it pass without some sort of response. SO. I ask him what he's caught today and he tells me of these 2 eight inch planted trout he's caught. Okay - So I figure the best way to get my half pound of revenge back is to blow this pompous assclown off the water. So I spend the next 2 hours within 100 or so yards of this jerk while my Dad and i catch one damn fish after another - using my cheap ass obviously useless rods - and EVERY time I catch one I make sure he sees the fish, and no i don't have any fish porn but we did get a few nicer Bluegill and bass. And yes I realize this post is a cheap shot but I simply could not resist the temptation to put yet one more arrogant brain dead gear jockey to the sword. Grandma always said it's what you know son not what you have. Grandma was always right it seems. Thank you for reading my rant and putting up with it.
