    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.
