a Credit card statement that have Basil Mannings or Somerset sport read much better than one with Teazers or Maverics.So at least your wife has a choice.Like the skollie that gave his victims a choice between a knife and himself , you can choose which weapon , maar vanaand word jy gesteek.

My bait last year Rock and Surf alone came to 5k .geeezlike ! new gold = bonnies

My carp fishing kit cost me in the region of 18k over the last 2 years.... I upset myself every time I go through my fishing gear and see all the goodies I havent found a situation to use for yet... but let there be something new on the shelves and I must have it...
Bass, fly and sea, about another 10k...
I hope my wife never ever reads this...

I did a quick count,
found that I have 37 rods of which
about 10 is light tackle,
5 is "surf rods" (2x14ft, 2x12ft, 1x10ft)
the rest is boat - from 10kg up to 37kg ratings
and ofcourse we not talking about damaged and broken rods either.

of them I have reels for probably about 25 rods (roughly)
I know for a fact that I have 5 multipliers
and also 6 lever drag reels (2xmed, 4xlarge - 50 size)
the rest are grinders, different sizes from 2000 up to 12000

Then we not talking lures and all the other stuff, cause I have so many Rapalas and other lures I don't want to count them, most of the lipped lures have never been used. They caught me, not the fish.

Ofcourse there are boats {2x 6.5m skiboats, 1x5m duck} (but I buy wrecks and rebuild them, works out cheaper - and also no concealed damage by previous owner) and the kayak aswell.

I have spent a small fortune on fishing tackle, enough to last me and 5 friends a lifetime

Still cheaper than drugs, and atleast with fishing tackle you have something to show for that money spent.

My dad always told me to do it PROPERLY or LEAVE IT. Being such a good boy I'm just doing what my father told me.

To prevent further spending I stay as far away as possible from ANY and ALL tackle shops.

It's difficult, but I take it one day at a time. It has been 8 days since my last visit.
Klap klap klap klap ... support please

The first and most important part of a addiction is being able to admit it. So all you guys who have posted a remark on this thread are in the clear.
We should worry about the guys not saying a word,
Luckily there is a cure for overspending.
Stay as far as possible from any tackle store-- go to the nearest water and fish, fish,FISH,FISH..............

Hey Kumz, are you well mate? best thing to spend the hard earned coins on - without a doubt.

I hear you bru. Sometimes it's nice when the festive time of the year is around the corner........as I heard from one of Santa's little helpers about who is getting what for Christmas.

It "slipped out" that there is an Alutecnos Albacore Gorilla 20 on order, and that Mum-in-Law is bringing it over from the UK on the 9th December. I also noticed a "big charge" on a CC statement from a prominent UK tackle dealer yesterday........Soooooooo, something nice to look forward to (that I didn't have to sneak out and purchase expensive shiny stuff........to feed the habit so to speak.).

Hopefully, there will also be a heavy jigging rod from ChrisW in the not-too-distant future once production commences.

That said, it all comes out of the annual tackle budget which is now approaching the 16k mark for 2008.......Ouch! That translates into a lot of beer.

Roll on Christmas!!!!
