To my surprise, my wife asked me the other night if she could go into my fishing room and grab some stuff to decorate the table. I was confused.:confused: She's practicing for a party later this month.

When I got home I found this table setting. Her only comment to me was "Honey, do you know that I spent over one hour picking out the right colored lures. It would have taken me a lot less time if I didn't have to go through over 200 to find the right combination".:eek:

She even changed a B2-30 on a conventional 550gr Powerspell to a twinspin 20.:rolleyes: My only comment was "That reel doesn't go with that type of rod". She replied "I don't care. I was looking for another short rod. I didn't like the way that "normal reel" matched my silverware".:eek:

That is a beautiful sight...
I have never heard my wife say anything about my gear except "Can you clean that up?" and "This bag is really heavy, do we really need all of this stuff?"

Well, I didn't tell the whole story. But, her and another friend is giving a bar shower for a couple getting married. The guy who I don't know, is into fishing.
He's probably a bass fisherman. She wants me to bring home about a 100 marlin lures so she can decorated with them.

I have them all perfectly organized in a snap-on tool box at work. It is going to be a bid pita for me. She also mentioned that my fishing room was "Out of Control" and she was going to sic the maid in there. I said "NO". That's why it's locked.

"He's probably a bass fisherman".................

I was a bass fishermen once,
As I have mentioned prior on this board from 88 to 89 I spent about 1.5 years over a 2 yr period between Kendell
and Homestead Fl. which is of course is between Miami and the keys.
In this time I landed over 15 bass above 6lbs and 2 above 10 lbs, released all
but 2 which where mounted.
I was really into it as I would fish a pond behind the county cemetary
by the Dade water plant in Kendell during lunch and the ponds by the toll boths near Homstead for a few mins after work on the way to an area beer\ bait camp for social activities.:)
This was worm fishing and I would devote 30 to 40 mins a week only to this effort. The weekends were spent either in the Keys or in the Glades out of Flamingo.
I was lucky to be able to do this, it was simple, it was cool and I was in my early
30s and wondered why locals weren't urban fishing also.
I weighed in 1 fish 10' 9 0z and turned in the paperwork for the 1989 MET
turny. It is kinda like the TX star turny for Maimi. It was the largest turned in that year
I was contacted and informed that my fish was not valid as I did not have a witness or guide listed. Upon returning to Texas I soon retired as a BassFishermen.

Life has become simpler now as I only assemble saltwater tackle on the
dinner table....:p

I might offer from my view, that table stacking is a result of an effort, in persuit of a passion, which results in art at a simple form, :rolleyes:

I just got home from a party. Let me just say that my wife and her friend discussed fishing decorating for over three hours.:eek:

The good thing is that I got two invitations on nice boats for floater trips. All I have to do is bring the tackle and experience. Both guys have wonderful boats but their capt's won't do overnight trips.:mad: I told them to fire um.:)
I've got plenty of tackle for tossing poppers for at least eight people. I just hope this wasn't all whiskey talk.:mad:
