Is it just me or does everyone go nuts buying gear(tackle) while waiting to go fishing!!??

I just realized( while ordering more gear) that in the last 6 months i've made maybe 4- 5 fishing trips and half a dozen online orders for lures, flies, lines,rods, spoons etc etc

Am i alone in this obsessive compulsive disorder, worthy of a trip(or two) to a shrink, or is this our way, the anglers way of coping while not being on the waters.

Would love to hear your side of the story......

Bobbychyma,

This is a universal affliction - glad to hear there are others in the same boat as me.

Regards,
Kingfish

It is really very hard for us anglers, not to fall pray to the lure of better gear. The best way to avoid this is that we start tying our own rigs, maintenance of used gear and dream a lot about the one that got away. :lol: :lol:

I will not say that I am suffering from the above disorder but will put it this way that I have More gear than I actually require. :twisted:

Regards,

Ali. :P
