Switch Rod Week Contest: The Best "Honey, I Need a New Fly Rod Because..." Excuse

By Kirk Deeter

Win this contest, and you not only get a free Cabela's TLr switch rod valued at $150, you will also have done your fellow anglers a great service.

Picking out the new rod you want and scratching together the money to buy it is one thing. But if you're like me, the big hurdle to jump is getting the Mrs. to buy into the concept that I actually need a new fly rod in the first place. I tried to tell her that golfers have different clubs for different shots, and the same should be true for fly fishers. But that doesn't work. Then I realized that it was indeed easier to apologize than it is to ask permission. But that's getting old.

So what I need from you men (and women) is the best, succinct, "But honey, I need a new fly rod because..." line. Ladies, you might get extra credit for offering a line that might actually work with you, as well as for you.

In any case, if you win, your significant other wins too, because that new rod won't cost a thing. Good luck.

Switch rods are ideal for swinging soft hackle flies in the riffles. What a fish catch tool, but you need to learn the system of swinging action/motion flies in the riffles. An incredibly efficient tool for this system of fishing, and my wife is very good at casting/fishing the swing. "The swing's the thing."

"Honey, I saved up some money and I was about to buy myself this new fly rod I need because mine just isn't working right anymore. But instead I bought you this fabulous new because I know you have always wanted it like I want that new rod. Maybe when I can save up enough money again I will get myself that rod." The key to this working is to actually save enough money to buy BOTH items. About a week after you give her the gift, order yourself the fly rod. She will NEVER accept the gift, which you "sacrificed" for and not let you have that fly rod. This works for just about every major purchase by the way.

"Honey...do you remember that new fly rod I've been looking at? The super-dooper x-5000? Well, I've decided against getting it. I had an epiphany...I don't need another reason to spend one more day away from you. I've been listening to you and know that you have wanted some "us" time. So, this weekend, you and I have reservations at (a romantic Bed &Breakfast). I noticed your interest in it when you saw it in Southern Living. I've already arranged for your sister to babysit the kids. I would rather put my money where my treasure really is......"

AND THIS IS A TRUE STORY. 2 WEEKS AGO I TOOK A FRIEND WHO ISNT AN ANGLER OUT FOR A DAY OF FISHING. WE STARTED OUR DAY ON A SMALL CREEK THAT THE KOKANEE AND BROWNS COME INTO FOR THE SPAWN. THE BIG LAKE RAINBOWS FOLLOW THEM UP TO EAT EGGS. WHAT A PERFECT WAY TO GET A NEWBIE STOKED ON FISHING. AFTER A FEW HOURS WE DECIDED TO GO TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LAKE TO FISH THE LOWER SECTION OF THE CREEK. TO SAVE TIME AT THE NEXT SPOT I PUT MY RODS ON THE MAGNETIC ROD HOLDERS INSTEAD OF BREAKING THEM DOWN. WE LEFT THE ZONE AND HIT THE FREEWAY. LONG STORY SHORT, THE RODS AND HOLDERS FLEW OFF THE TRUCK AT 65. I WATCHED AT LEAST 10 CARS RUN OVER MY RIGS. ONE WAS MY SAGE VPS 9'6" 6 WGHT WITH A BRAND NEW TARGUS LARGE ARBOR REEL. THE OTHER WAS MY DAUGHTERS CABELAS COMBO RIG SHE GOT FOR HER BIRTHDAY. WAY TO KILL A GREAT DAY, MY WIFE BROUGHT ME A COLD BEER.

Honey I need a new fly rod because last night I broke my last one trying to save a child from floating downstream. He'd fallen off of the bridge upstream and I managed to hook him as he drifted by. I had to horse him in like I was trying to rip a snag off the bottom. I got him half way to shore when the rod snapped in two. But I quickly waded out to him and he grabbed onto the butt of my rod and I was able to swing him to shore. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Honey, I need a new fly rod because if you'll remember last September was the last time I was fishing. That's when I landed that salmon. You know the one. I had just landed him in the grass when that bear came out of the woods and drove me back into the water. He grabbed that salmon with that streamer still in his mouth and headed back into the woods so fast that he took my old rod with him. I never found it so I headed back to the stream. I cut a 7 foot willow and tied two rolls of tippet onto it like a long leader.I then tied on a size two streamer and tossed the streamer into the riffle by hand. Straight away I hooked another bigger salmon and in half an hour I won the game of give and take and landed the brute. It was the biggest salmon I had ever caught. I'll never understood why those strangers reacted so when they found me. You would of thought a giant salmon would have impressed them. No, they just called for the stupid ambulance I guess. The next thing I saw was your smiling face when I woke up in the hospital. They had stitched up the bear scratches across my face and arms but I was still pretty out of it. But now that I'm feeling better and were talking Honey, I'm going to need a new rod. And by the way, do you know what happened to my salmon?

Honey, I need a new fly rod to replace the one I lost in our house fire... Also, boots, vest, reel, fly line, flies, waders, and the fly tying bench. Of course, this works really, but only if you have actually had a major structure fire. (I did find revealing the cost of what it would take to replace all of the shotguns and rifles you lost seems to help make the expense of the fishing gear you are replacing seem more reasonable. However, it does weaken your hand when you finally get around to replacing that favorite over/under.)

Honey, I need a new fly rod because if you'll remember last September was the last time I was fishing. That's when I landed that salmon. You know the one. I had just landed him in the grass when that bear came out of the woods and drove me back into the water. He grabbed that salmon with that streamer still in his mouth and headed back into the woods so fast that he took my old rod with him. I never found it so I headed back to the stream. I cut a 7 foot willow and tied two rolls of tippet onto it like a long leader.I then tied on a size two streamer and tossed the streamer into the riffle by hand. Straight away I hooked another bigger salmon and in half an hour I won the game of give and take and landed the brute. It was the biggest salmon I had ever caught. I'll never understood why those strangers reacted so when they found me. You would of thought a giant salmon would have impressed them. No, they just called for the stupid ambulance I guess. The next thing I saw was your smiling face when I woke up in the hospital. They had stitched up the bear scratches across my face and arms but I was still pretty out of it. But now that I'm feeling better and were talking Honey, I'm going to need a new rod. And by the way, do you know what happened to my salmon?
