I over heard my wife talking to our daughter the other day when she came to visit. "Ma, whats this thing?" Referring to my totally packed JR rod bag...."Oh that...thats just your dads fishing purse!" I don't know man? I may have to go back to the bucket thing? grin.gif

To be called a purse it has to be one of two things. 1: Too small to hold more than a 1/8 oz jig; 2: So big it could almost fit a portable fish house in it. If you carry the purse back to the auto, make her carry the fish and clean em when you get home.

Anyone ever see the Seinfeld episode with the "MAN BAG"? "Hey officer stop him he stole my man bag.......(puzzled cop looking at Jerry) Okaaay, Allright, my purse, he stole my purse!" grin.gif Wait till she gets ahold of a gander at your newly bought megamonstorous soft sided tackle box! Oh this old thing.........been hanging around in the garage forever, thought I'd take it out and dust it off a bit! grin.gifgrin.gif

T....You know what? My wifes purse WAS heavier then my rod bag, no schmidt! I mean, she axed me to get it for her one day and I couldn't even lift the danged thing!

I'm a pretty strong guy, but I bet that thing must weigh close to tree hundred pounds...and I ain't dat strong!

What I did was put some quilts on the floor and I pushed that sucker off of the dresser....didn't want it to wreck our wood floor, or worse yet, break an eyebrow pencil or something.

Once on the floor, I was able to drag it by the straps into the other room....took me about 10 minutes. When I finally got it to her she says, "Oh, I don't need it now...I found a nail file in the junk drawer!"

She has enough junk strategicly packed into that purse, to fill a steamer trunk and I do believe that for some reason, she secretly carries an anvil around in there? I don't know, maybe she was a blacksmith before we got married?

Anyways, she gave me a two hour course on how pack my rod bag for maximum efficentcy. You guys should confide in the pro's on how to pack those bags! Someone with years of experience, someone that knows, like your wives and your girlfriends.....I can now get 35 rods and reels, two tackle boxes full of tackle, my auger, my lunch, my bait, my extras, and a change of clothes into that sucker! She even taught me the tricks of lifting it up and carrying it around, without having to be admitted to the er!

Thanks to her, when I go fishing, there is nothing that I will need, that can't be found in that rod bag, but I've been wondering if I really need the anvil?

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
