I’ve never been one to follow crazes just because it’s the trend. I like to think I’m more of a pragmatist – I do what needs to be done and I like form and function. If a thing doesn’t serve a regular purpose I don’t need it to clutter my world.
You’d have to wonder how that could possibly be true with all the different tackle we already have, but each and every item came into our gallery of gear to serve a useful purpose we had at the time. Outfits like our numerous top quality baitcasters might only get a run every few years we make a trip into barra country and for the rest of the time they pretty much just sit idle, but come those all-too-rare tropical trips we would not want to be without them. That’s not clutter or craze, that’s acquiring the right tools for the job, without compromise.
