I thought you had my excuse nailed in your introductory golf analogy, but it fell short. He's my lame attempt at justifying another fly rod/reel (Current inventory stands at 46 rods and 31 reels, mostly Winston and Hardy) Golf not only has 13 clubs needed, but every golfer alive thinks nothing of replacing his Titanium Driver evry year with the newest $500 Zirconium Driver!! Also, (and this is the kicker) they PAY EVERY TIME THEY GO GOLFING!! Unless you go to DePuy's or Armstrong every week, you don't pay to fish. SOOOOO, it's actually cost effective to buy the occassional fly rod and reel and amortize its cost over the number of fishing trips you take. Anybody buying into this??
