Are my priorities screwed up?

I had a choice:

New rifle or new fly rod.

I chose the flyrod.

For the price of a new Browning A-Bolt Meddalion and Leupold scope, I bought a new Sage RPLXI flyrod and Lamson Litespeed 3.5. Now my next gun purchase won't be for about a bazillion years.

    I'm ashamed of you! Go play on that fly fishing board

    I'm not afraid of the dark...the dark is afraid of me!

    Fly rods or guns. Two good ideas - either one is fine.

    Thanks, Daddo!

    They way I figured it, it would be pretty hard to shoot striped bass with a 30-06, you know. Far better to appeal to their stomachs with a nice Clowser's Deceiver.

    a nice Ugly stick with a penn 4500SS reel works well for me. Either choice is a good one. Hunt 1/2yr, fish the other 1/2.

    A great rifle with a junk scope,....is junk.

    Yes they are. Coulda got the rifle and a canepole. No point in spending a lot of money to sleep on a river bank.

    Redleg-- Not a bad choice. There's very few things that compare to the sound of a fish stripping line off of a reel.

    Hey, sometimes the range is too crowded where I shoot, thats when I head to one of the lakes and fish. I'd say you made a good choice,

    Redleg. you made the wrong choice. You can always shoot carp with a rifle but you'll never land a whitetail with a flyrod. Leaders are too weak............
