Confession or contrition?
... used to be a lot of talk on this forum regarding the "addictive" quality of long-range fishing.
Present roster of long-range reels is easily in the 20 range and that excludes some surf casting equipment and freshwater equipment. It would easily throw the collection into the 30+ range. As for rods, they are in the 40 + range. The ceiling photo below, (NOT artfully displayed) is the majority of functional equipment (and the second picture I believe was one from Fishybuzz)(something I can only aspire to!). [Usually only travel with a dozen or so setups, depending on the trip.] Seen LOTS of photographs on the Long-Range Forum over the years, making this look like amateur hour, as some folks have "small" tackle shops. ...some even resemble the high-end outfits.
ALWAYS good to remember happy wife, happy life! Then you can always turn the other cheek and support some of her own "collecting".
friend who was amused with the amount of skiing "essentials" we would haul, use to say "the person who dies with the most equipment. wins!"
Certainty, I am powerless!
