Tuesday Rationalization: But Honey?

25 May

Every Tuesday we will try to rationalize on life and fly fishing. 

05/25/2010:  Has anyone out there had to rationalize to their significant other about why the need for new fishing equipment?  Do tell.

    I say “I need this rad new gear to catch more fish.” Plain and simple, right? She hears “I will catch more fish, which will result in me spending even less time with you.”

      Makes sense to me!! I give the excuse….i need this new rod and reel because it’s got a better warranty, so i’ll never have to buy another one like it…..which untimately leads me to explain the need for different weight rods reels line etc etc, which confuses her to the point of agreeing with me is better than continuing the conversation.

        I tried that, too. Apparently, she does not understand why one rod, reel, and line cannot catch every species of fish on the planet. Much the same as why I do not understand the need for different sized dinner and salad forks.
