    I encourage everyone who gets ruffled by Jon's comments to read the above. Jon and Jamie are literally the best of friends.

    If thats the case, I apologize for my comment, I had no idea. I don't know Jon, just thought it was beyond the line for this for this forum. I would most likely stick up for any regular contributor on this forum, being attacked personally.

    I agree with Jon, it’d be nice if Jamie were a little freer with advice, I hate having to pry it out of him! Jamie, dude, love you man, see you at the FHS!

    Well, I can see where you might react that way. When I read the post I spilled my Diet Coke. The context here, though, is that both Jamie and Jon have been fishing the Gallagher 8-Day Labor Day trip for years...and that is an interesting group! There's not a shrinking violet among them, and some of them (maybe especially Pat himself) define "extrovert." Jon is actually a fine gentleman, someone I like and respect.

    I think this is a case of him deciding that the best defense is a good offense. And besides, why not rag on Jamie?

    (Jamie knows that I hold him in the highest regard)

    Chill dude, Jamie and I are buds, almost brothers.. If you can’t pull someone’s strings in jest, it’s not fun. I fully expect a Jamie will use his superior intelligence (and he’s one of the really bright ones) to come back even Stronger. Your fricking political correct world is nucking futts.

    By far the best shop around. If you get a little bit of a "hard time" ie ribbing from anyone it is all out of love!!! If you haven't had the pleasure of fishing with them on a short or long trip you really are missing out as I guarantee you will have a great time, make great friends and sign up for the next go around. Did my first 10 day with the gang about 20 years ago and to this day it still makes me smile.

    Overall just a great group of people that will share everything they know in order to help you catch fish.

    Stickboy!!!

    It's okay folks,

    Jon just found out our mom removed him from the will. She reads Bloody decks 5 times a day.. When she discovered Jon had gotten back on the Shine, she not only took away his scooter with the little bell and Pink basket on the back. but also told Jon he was no longer in the will. Funny, I never thought Jon was even considered Will worthy... Jon, I had very little to do with her decision... Though I did drive her to the Trust and Will feller.

    She finally admitted, she never trusted you.

    When things get tough and the fists start flying I now know Tom Honaker and a few others on this board is the guy I want protecting my Back when the devil rears his ugly face.. Thank you Tom.

    It is very sad that time and life has turned my dear friend and brother Jon (Outhouse) into an AA member (Angry Anglers). I feel bad for my friend Jon as every year he travels about 1800 miles, to visit with me for a bit over a week.. Jon bring gifts and acts like a true southern gentleman but do not let that mostly smiling and generous demeanor fool you... Jon is evil... Pure evil thru and thru...

    The evil is normally caged as Jon has discovered that going thru life as an Angry young man did not cut it for him.. Clearly, going thru life as an Angry Old man is much worse.. Alas, someone or something opened the Pandora's box and let the Devil out.. That wonderful southern charm Jon emits turned into the release of the apocalypse..

    I suppose it is Jon's advanced age that has finally worn thru the protective shell he wears. However, Jon, you have now exposed yourself for the back stabbing, ungrateful, self centered, hyper sensitive and narcissistic person Mom always said you were.. No more will I fight to protect you... even though you are 18 minutes older than me... Hey Older will always be older...

    Tom Honaker, a spot just opened on the always booked Gallagher 8 day trip in Sept. It appears as if some angry dude from Memphis un-knowingly cancelled his trip.. Besides, Colorado has better fly fishing than Memphis.. By the way Tom.. Never apologize for doing the right thing especially when confronting the devil himself. You single handedly put Pandora back in the bottle.. but it could rise again knowing Jon...

    Hey Jon, How are all those Tenn. Sports franchises doing for you?? Perhaps it is the let down of your teams that prompted the need to post such an angry statement..

    PS mom says you are out of the Will....

    Well, getting back to the issue, I haven't "testified" about Bob Sands because, as far as I can recall, I've never been there. I was living in LA in 1996-97, but that was before I got into San Diego fishing. Since then, I haven't been back there much, and when I have, I never found time to get to the shop.

    That doesn't mean that, since I found out about it, I haven't wanted to go, and that's all because of Jamie. I think maybe I met Jamie once down at the Landing, but only for a minute. Over the years, though, he and I have discussed many aspects of fishing (and life), and over that time period, I have come to trust and rely on his advice.

    I have learned a whole lot about fishing for tuna, yellowtail, and wahoo over these past 10 years, and from quite a few people. I have to say, though, that Jamie has been one of the most helpful...and most gracious!...of my "mentors." Most recently, after I had my rods stolen, he took the time to offer his wise counsel about what rods I should get to replace the stolen ones. The man spent well over an hour on the phone, describing in great and expert detail, various United Composite blanks. Based in large part on his recommendations, I will soon take delivery of five beautiful new sticks.

    And this coming September 1st, I'll be on that same 8-Day trip. I'll get to share the rail with Jamie at long last, and learn by watching. I really can't wait!

    Jamie, you know I’m both older, by at least 2 hours, and much wiser. I’m sad Mom took me out of the will, but she’ll probably outlive me given my propensity for doing the flying squirrel from the top of trees. I do have an evil side and yes, our sports teams do tend to bring the worse out of me. I’m afraid they, and thus me, are in for a very dark period. But, picking at you is pure fun. Luv’ ya’ brother!

    Back to business folks.

    This sale has been nothing short of spectacular.. Folks are loading up on all of these amazing rods and prices we have never before offered. Truck loads of rod inventory has come into the shop only to go back out the door with "Sold" receipts on them.. Those picking up rods at the show will have the pleasure of a relaxed rod purchasing experience by having pre-ordered, at LOWER THAN SHOW PRICING as we will hold the rod for you until you feel it is time to pick it up.. No wandering around holding onto a long rod... Unless, of course, you are motivated by such things.

    THANK YOU TO ALL THE CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THIS AMAZING SALE AND THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO MAY PARTICIPATE IN THE FUTURE.

    PLEASE NOTE: EVERYONE WHO HAS MESSAGED ME SHOULD HAVE HAD A RESPONSE BY ME.. IF YOU HAVE NOT PLEASE SEND ME ANOTHER MESSAGE BY PM REGARDING A ROD QUOTE AND OR PURCHASE.

    Jamie

    Thank you Jim,

    I have been working until 1 Am every morning churning out quotes, answering a myriad of great questions, taking orders and doing inventory.. Crazy but I think everyone is taken care of for tonight.. Finally, I get to go to bed before 1:30 AM.. And I do not have to make bait.... this is really a good night..

    Just wanted to give a big thanks to Jamie, and the crew at Bob Sands Tackle. Been fishing long range since the early 70s, including a few 16 day trips, between 1975 and 1993. Have enjoyed a wonderful career as a captain on the los angeles county lifeguard Baywatch rescue vessels. However, I am now really feeling the toll of that work physically, especially neck and lower back. Have had fusions of C6-7 and L4-5 and a lot of Physical Therapy. Finally made it out to the shop this past saturday for my 1st visit. All I can say is WOW!!! Jamie was great, and spent a couple of hours with me. Taught me a whole lot about rods and how they bend (and should bend), body mechanics, posture to to name a few of the many subjects. Great guy, great shop, great employees, who treated me to a taco lunch! Real fair deals on a few rods too. And at age 65 the tips and suggestions will certainly help me enjoy this sport well into the "Golden Years". Big Thanks Again to all, especially Jamie. Looking forward to my next visit! Aloha
    Larry
