When you call into work sick on friday because your new baits were not finished for the weekend fishing trip:eek:
When you get after your wife for putting too many plants in her pond because you cant get your bait through to see the action!

...in languages you can't even read!

Your wife asks you why there was a $100 charge to Wal-Mart for something called "Devcon".
You can honestly write off the taxes on half your house because it is now a lure factory. This includes the kitchen, a bedroom, half the family room, and all of the garage.
You give a friend a ride in your vehicle and it takes you two minutes to clean the lures, hooks, molds, and various other lure building tackle off the passenger seat before they can safely get in.
You write off 10,000 miles per year for "trips to the pond to research lures"............and this is a conservative estimate!

Your Cat, dog, and Daughter all were accidently hooked in the same night. The cat must have got into some lures laying out and dragged them onto the floor and then all over the house. Then the dog managed to find a couple. Then while walking to the bathroom in the middle of the night the daughter managed to find one with her foot. Not only did she hook herself but she managed to sink both trebles past the barbs into her foot. I spent over an hour pulling lures out of people and animals at 3:00 am. The wife was not amused one bit. Now she thinks there need to be rules in the lure room like no lures left out on the work bench. I say no cats allowed in the lure room would be much better. I cant wait till my shop is done.

-when your friends stop asking you the question, "what you did this weekend" but now ask the question,"how many lures you made this weekend".

The dog gets a hair cut because you ran out of marabou for popper tails and are dying to finish that cool new popper you just made.
Your wife is bored sick, tired of, and just can't understand the big deal of you talking about Walmart no longer having Devcon.
You drive all over the area trying to find water that isn't frozen to test baits.

You buy a bunch of flowers - just to get that 'chrome' Mylar foil, that must certainly look spectacular on your latest bait.pete

When you give flowers and keep the wrapping! I really like that one Pete. Almost as good as Amilia's, what an idiot.

When you beg your wife to buy you that sweet (expensive), vintage wooden fly fishing trout net for your birthday and when she gives it to you, you unwrap it, say thanks then whip out the scissors, cut off your new scale stencil and throw the rest in the garbage as you run to the shop to try it out on a lure.

mangeboy - did you check the contents, there's some good stencil lace in those things??? If you are lucky, enough to cover a 12" swim bait. pete
Posted 18 February 2009 - 08:46 PM
When I'm walking around with paint on the lacey parts of my undies cause I thought it would be a great stencil pattern
Posted 18 February 2009 - 08:56 PM
It would really be wonderful if you could share a pic, mere words probally don't do it justice.
