... Just wondering if Mrs. Mumbles is laying down some rules on Mr. Mumbles? That would be a shame for Mr. Mumbles ... unless, of course, he would willing to part with some of his fine fly-fishing tackle? ... perhaps some willing trade partners on this site would also be interested?
That's an interesting observation, especially since Mrs. Mumbles is working on her MBA. Wonder if she's done an ROI analysis on his gear closet and concluded that the prospect of diminishing returns is as hard to ignore as gravity?
Actually, there was no hidden plan, I was just curious. Having had only one rod a long time ago, a Cabelas starter 5wt and I think a Cahill II reel I've filled the quiver with a lot of things. When I survey them I don't have that mystical connection yet with any one of them, but there are a few that I really like. Today I did use a recently acquired custom 4wt to land a nice, fat, bright 24" stocker rainbow in a tough lake. That was pretty sweet.
