Scum, Last summer I believe you told me your wife purchased you a Quantum energy reel? I am building a new rod and I ordered all the guides in the chameleon color. I also purchased the Quantum energy reel. It should look really cool. Did you like the reel? A bit expesive to get that chameleon color!
I love it. It's so smooth and the bail has magnets in it so it wont ever wear out. I have to watch my buddy when we go fishing cause he trys to use it when I'm not looking. Didn't I let you use it last year? Are you going to paint the rod blank also.. I seen one like that last year at the sportsman show ($500.00) I didn't get it but it was so cool. Last year at the end of the summer I pulled my rod with that reel on it out of the case and the tip was broken off. I couldn't get into fishing the whole day after that. So I need to send it in to get fixed. Or I might build one. We'll see.
Nope I didn't use it but I remember you showing it to me. I made two rods last year and I like them but not sensitive anuff for me. I am spending a ton on a rod blank this year and going back to cork instead of wood for the handle. We will see how it turns out.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
