The guy offering the rod isn't from Colorado is he?

No, he lives in Montana, near one of the famous rivers and just down the road from Twin Bridges. I'll simply have to make a pilgrimage out there one day soon, before he changes jobs again.

Robbie just go ahead and get the rod. If the wife gets upset she will get over it in time.

I’ve come home with many toys down thru the years and the wife has been upset often with some of my spending habits. It’s never stopped me and never will. If you really want the rod buy it and enjoy it.

Buy it and ship it to me. I'll ship it to you from Adairsville, along with a note that I've tried fishing the rod and it's just not my thing, but I know you'd appreciate it, so I'm gifting it to you. You can show the note to your wife...and hope she doesn't browse this site.

I can't advise until I know who keeps the books in your house.

Doug will drip tears of sorrow on the stationary to show how sad he is that he was unable to "master the complexities" of the rod. He writes well. A decent bottle of single malt scotch should seal the deal.
