General Discussion / PooP Happens!
« Last post by Golden on May 20, 2015, 09:54:52 AM »
So I have a new "I'll never do that again!"  The other day at my office warehouse where I keep a good portion of my fishing gear, I decided to box up my two damaged Sage fly rods to send off for repair.  One an awesome XP - 8 wt and the other a RPLXi 8 wt. that I use for dredging work. I love both of these rods as I guess we all do in one way or another.  They were carefully placed in a plain triangular shipping box stuffed with bubble-wrap and sealed up.  I did this about three weeks ago while gathering up my equipment for the Laguna Trip. So I left them out in the shop in an area where I had my other fishing equipment.

Last week I called FedEx and ordered a pick up for the rods to be sent to Sage. I then went out into the shop and could not find the shipping box anywhere! Here is where the PooP begins to fly!  I noticed how the shop appeared much better organized and cleaner than before my trip. So I asked my son-in-law if he had put the box somewhere.  He said No not really.  So I then did a closer inspection of the warehouse to see where it could be.  Well you've already guessed what happened by now. BOOM two $ 700.00+ investment rods GONE TO THE DUMP-DUMP-DUMP! He had decided to clean up the mess of leftover materials and job junk that was brought back to our warehouse recently from one of our projects.  He said he probably picked up the box shook it and thought it was empty and so he threw it away.

I'll never do that again!  So yesterday I picked up one of the few SAGE XP 8 wts for public consumption off of EBAY.  It had been custom built by a well known rod builder in Wisconsin who put some cool feathers just above the handle too. Yes I know I can only hope he did a great job building the rod!  It looked awesome and had only seen fresh water on a pike trip once. Handle looks brand new.  I can guarantee you'll see me using it soon. 

Also an update...the Muy Guapo is at the boat doctors getting refurbished to be ready for the season.  Once I have both the boat and the rod in hand you will know where to find me!





Tight Lines to All!

I will go by this weekend mostly to see if they have cut down the weeds.  If so I will most likely fish the ponds as the bayou will still be in Class 4 condition!  Have you ever seen so much rain.

Was catchin plenty of these before the weather turned bad.

Watched this squall line come racing in...time to go!

No lightening yet but getting a little scary!

Anybody want to raise a flyrod into the air?


Call me if you want to join me. I'll have my watercraft with me too.

Hey Joe thought I would help you with your request.  We are putting on the front-Home page of the website that information monthly.  Look at the left hand column.  It will be Lefty Ray Chapa - he will address fishing photography.  With all of the cool trips you take a year, you can learn how to get the most from your camera so we can actually see your catch! Hope to see you there.

I realized this was a Tuesday after I signed up.  I won't be able to make it.

My error.

It is the 11th, not the 7th.

Installed new electronics this year, included the Navionics Platinum Plus chip. Still learning its use, but absolutely love it. Think of it as Google earth on your GPS. When fishing the LLM a few weeks back it was superb...

Stop thinking about it and go buy one!
