Thumbs up Man 'O Man you order from the Red Shed ...

Don't lay down to take a Nappie Poo. Your door bell is about to go Ding-Dong!

Ordered up a new wading staff (and a bit more) from Mike and I think the Mail Lady got a huge kick out of that as she handed same over. A rod tube (actually a new wading staff) and a fishing magazine.

Grin on her face was priceless. A new 'Boy Toy' and a fishing magazine at the same time ....

Did something really stupid about three weeks back and left my UK one on the beach. Actually I think I left it setting against the front of the Jeep as I was loading up the doggie, rods and taking my waders off.

And drove off .... Well you start by backing up on the gravel bar ...Forward I think I would have seen the bone handle sticking above the hood. End game is someone down here has a 'new' wading staff that would take just one look and "That's Fred's!" Even had a silver ring at the top with my name engraved on same.

The new one from Mike? You could beat an Elephant to death with this thing. We are talking MAJOR GOOD here.

When I ordered up same from Mike I didn't even ask 'How much;' "Just a send it to me." Got my monies worth and then some.

Indeed I did Nate, indeed I did. A 'one off' here in the PNW.

Not to worry, there's a short season on the things here in Southern Oregon. Damned hard to find one in the wild, but when you do ........

I thought elephants were C&R in Oregon?

That staff has to show up. I can't imagine someone using it with your name on it. How awkward would that be to run into someone who knows you? Busted! Hope it shows back up, and you have a nice "spare" from Poppy.

For me, the glass is neither half-empty nor half-full, but rather twice as big as it needs to be.

staff

Fred,
I also have the Sharpe's from Poppy. Maybe it is meant to be used as
a "priest" for those hatchery fish. LOL.
Best,

Good call there, that hadn't crossed my mind. This is heavy enough that just one whack would do the job. The thing has to weigh in at least 5 or more pounds.

The thing is hell bent for stout.

Lot of truth to that, it was a 'one off' made for me in the UK.Doubt there's too many bone handled staffs with a pound of lead wrapped around running around out there.

The thing could be used as an education tool for low holers.

Fred I haven't weighed any of this batch of staffs but they normally weigh 2.2lbs.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB
