The wife already busted me when I bought the 10wt.
I had stopped into FTU to get a couple things before my Florida trip and I had been planning on getting the TFO TiCRX in 10wt to be able to hit longer casts. I have a 10wt TFO Mangrove that's fantastic inside 50-60ft but it practically buckles past that. Anyway, I got to bullnaughty wordting with Jim about the rods and he says, "have you cast the new Tidal?" I say "no, let's go out back and check it out."
5 minutes with it and I was sold.
Anyway, last week the rib happens to look at the bills more closely than normal and says, "Dan, did you spend $600 at Fishing Tackle Unlimited?"
My response, "Baby, I don't know what you're talking about."
Oh well, she didn't get mad. Her response to me was basically, "As long as you're closing deals, I don't care that you spend money."
That being said, I still need to buy a GPS, marine radio, and push pole for the boat. That will easily be over $1000 so the new 8wt will have to wait.
