|So, when you believe you have everything you will ever need for flyfishing, what do you get for yourself?|
Custom made 9'3" slow action 2 weight?
Another bamboo fly rod?
Several high end fly boxes?
A custom fiberglass rod?
1 man pontoon?
Expensive fly reel (New Hardy Perfect maybe)?
A bunch of technical clothing?

|oh, gee...get something with a history. either a history of its own, or a history because you know the maker personally. then when there's so much stuff that you decide to help others get started in the sport, you'll know what to keep.|

So, when you believe you have everything you will ever need for flyfishing, what do you get for yourself?
An appointment with a psychiatrist.
When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

A house on a trout stream.
A chilled aquarium with trout. (Only legal in some places.)
An aquarium for aquatic insects. (Again, legal some places.)
A really nice camera to take on the stream.
