News Flash - Shoes / Boots and Fishing Gear

Recommended Posts

Sitting here with Mrs C4F at lunch - she was talking about getting a new pair of boots...as I looked at the picture I asked her "don't you have a pair of boots just like that"?

I knew I was in trouble when her head cocked to one side and she gave me that look.......So I sat silently for the next 12 minutes 30 seconds hearing about points, heels and other things...I think I actually blacked out for a bit. But I am sure my defense mechanism kicked in....nodding and smiling.....

When I realized that she was done talking I picked up the most recent BPS flier and said..."so this $99 Lews reel is just like my others but I can still buy one if I wanted because it is green right?" And what she said next floored me....yes - you get it!!

I am not sure how to use this information.......

Yeah - you can sure tell the lakes are frozen over here :huh:

I tried telling my wife I needed a driftboat for river fishing,she said you don't fish rivers.My point exactly.I just bought it instead.She was surprised to say the least.Wouldn't be so bad if that wasn't the fourth boat I own.Let your wife buy whatever she wants.By the way my wife wanted to go to Florida to visit her cousin after my new boat got delivered,guess who ended up buying her the ticket.It was' not her,I think I got the better deal

Dude!!!  Call us first next time.  You could get yourself in the deep freeze for a while saying crazy stuff like that.:lol:

I think you are right...i did have brain freeze! It was like an OBE (out of body experience) I could see myself sitting at the table and watching the words come out....I think I might have even been yelling at myself to STOP....I think it has to do with the bitter cold....It go to a whopping 12 here today!!

fshndoug...I do let her buy pretty much what she wants....I have learned that long ago. But I think she would put the kibosh on boat #4  :P

I am still a bit dazed and confused - so it may be a trap - I think she almost told me, in code, to buy what I want..... kinda feel like a 8 y/o boy with a $5 bill standing in the Walmart toy aisle right now.....not really sure what to do!

You are brave or dumb.  However, as Champ188 will tell you, I have less shoes than most men.  And, what aren't Crocs, are golf shoes and a couple pairs of insulated waterproof boots for fishing.  I'm always amazed at the fascination / addiction my gender has with shoes.

        Pretty funny Donna G. I wondered that about Mrs. BilletHead for awhile. She as you do with your Champ likes to Fish but Fly fishing is our vice. We  used to discuss if she had more shoes than we have fly rods. Now I see less shoes in the pile and more Fly Rods being accumulated. I don't say anything when she wants anything, nadda, nothing at all. She doesn't question me about fly fishing or fly tying gear as she thinks we may need it. Got her fooled about that :D,

When my wife says no problem just go buy it, it sort of takes the fun out of the game and I end up not getting it.  Somehow she has come up with this reverse psychology thingy and it works too well on me.
