Being an avid gear addict – I admit it ok – I always have an eye open for my next purchase. When I say gear addict I mean I want to have all the gear necessary for the type of fishing that I do. I have pretty much reached that point. I have my Orvis Superfine 4 weight, my Sage SLT 5 weight, my bamboo 4 weight, my Loop 8/9 weight to name but a few. Essentially, rods wise I am now totally kitted out. I could always do with a new ultra lightweight reel however it is not really necessary.
That being said I do have a few items I would like to get.
A Float Tube
I am not a big fan of boats, sure I love it but I am just too much of a tight arse to pay £25 every time I want to go out on a boat on a loch. The simple answer is to buy myself a float tube – a good one at that which will last and I reckon will pay for itself within a couple of years. I want to try and get one for next season.
I quite fancy this one from Sportfish
A Barometer/Compass/Altimeter Watch
I like gadgets ok.
I have noticed with my Pike fishing that they tend to go off the feed because of approaching weather systems. Certainly I have noticed the same with my trout fishing. I would like to make a more detailed note of temp, wind direction and atmospheric pressure. Yes – I am a geek.
I have seen a few on Ebay. and for that matter on Amazon
That is it really – I cannot think of anything really that I need or want….ohh…maybe a wee dinky bag to fish light actually…good grief will this madness never end?
