Ronan's report


Friday 7th March, 2014

So I was thinking how great it was to be this close to spring and how holy crow it's this close to spring and I have to get a move on the spring cleaning. Especially now that Tiana and I are going on a spring cruise through the Panama Canal, it will be an adventure and there will be fly rods and fly fishing...

Now getting back to the pesky cleaning thing.. So I regularly clean my lines and I figured one of my dirtier lines would be the SA Mastery Textured Nymph/Indicator line, I have used this line hard. But nope not bad at all considering I have used it during run off and on less than clean waters.. I got this line as they first came out as a mater of fact a bit before it was released to the fly fishing public, Thanks to Gentleman Jack Simpson. Geeze I hope he does not read that!!

So to say the line is "old" (like Jack) and should be retired, could be correct but and there is always a butt, so am I and I refuse to retire, so the line will get plenty more use in the rotation of lines I use, I did have to replace the loop on the end of the line with a field repair near the end of the season last year due to no fault of the line..

If you know the geography of the streams around my neck of the Rocky Mountains and foothills you will know that there are some damn sharp edges and ridges under water and I managed to saw the tip off the line on one while I was trying to land a "Bottom Trout" so a10 min repair coupled with a beer and cigar and back at it for the rest of the season, damn I enjoy good Fly lines and fly fishing essentials.

Speaking of missing parts and repairs, enjoy this tale, while I get back at it, the rods are not going to wax themselves.

RETIREMENT BONUS

If this doesn't make you laugh, you are truly humour impaired!

The Navy found they had too many officers and decided to offer an early retirement bonus. They promised any officer who volunteered for retirement a bonus of $1,000 for every inch measured in a straight line between any two points in his body.. The officer got to choose what those two points would be.

The first officer who accepted asked that he be measured from the top of his head to the tip of his toes. He was measured at six feet and walked out with a bonus of $72,000.

The second officer who accepted was a little smarter and asked to be measured from the tip of his outstretched hands to his toes. He walked Out with $96,000.

The third one was a non-commissioned officer, a grizzly old Chief who, when asked where he would like to be measured replied, 'From the tip of my weenie to my testicles.'

It was suggested by the pension man that he might want to reconsider, explaining about the nice big cheques the previous two Officers had received..
But the old Chief insisted and they decided to go along with him providing the measurement was taken by a Medical Officer.

The Medical Officer arrived and instructed the Chief to 'drop 'em,' which he did.. The medical officer placed the tape measure on the tip of the Chief's weenie and began to work back. Dear Lord!' he suddenly exclaimed, 'Where Are your testicles?'

The old Chief calmly replied, 'Vietnam.'
