    I can see a problems for chickens in all of this.

    Dead chickens hanging from door ways all over angler land.

    Exorcism for wayward rods all over the place, due to Gene's generous on line offer.

    If my credit cards were not all maxed out, I would send you the
    $29.95 for that pesky 5 weight in my quiver.

    Gene, may I pay for the reel exorcism and get the rod one free? BTW, what's PayPal? Can I give you US dollars or Elbonian shillings instead? If yes, please give me your online bank account details together with your username and password and I'll make payment ASAP.

    Yours faithfully,
    Kenneth in Nigeria

    I would wait for a starless night and then, by the light of an alderwood fire, annoint the rod with the juice of fermented potatoes. The high priest (annointer) is required to wear a uni-sex thong, the prescribed garb of the Seattle Queen Anne metrosexual.

    This should render the bad ju-ju harmless and return the rod back to fish hooking and landing. If this ceremony fails a good baptism of spawning chum slime would make it stink enough so that you would not mistake this rod for one of your preferred ones.

    On a personal note, I had a bad benchrest rifle that I had bought from a fellow shooter, who bought it from another shooter, who got it from another shooter.... You'd have think I would have picked up on that mobility. It had accuracy issues, usually mid-group. I named the rifle "Christine", after the movie as it seemed truly evil. Shortly afterwards I sold it to a fellow shooter who also transferred it to another shooter.

    I know how he feels. Since I moved to Montana, I have no use for my 8wt rod and reel set up. I tried to sell it here but no takers. I ain't going to EBAY. It just sits in the corner and collects dust. But it's in a case.

    Don't do it, Darth! Deliberately burning a Meiser is practically begging for Old Testament-level Divine Retribution!:mad:

    It had been suggested that I donate it to a worthy cause, then I got to thinking, what could entail more karmic justice than a disabled vet donating a spey rod to a program specifically for taking out disabled vets flyfishing? Yup, I think PHW is gonna get themselves a Meiser.

    I prefer the term "Ducking Fun" myself. It's stupid but I'm easily amused and it can be tossed about in mixed company. Not that seems to be an issue here.

    EBay is completed garbage. But it is one way to get rid of your junk or trash at home. If you can sell it dirt cheap and you're not losing any money. I say that is a win. All the stuff i've been selling in ebay is dirt cheap. I just feel better than stuff sitting in house collecting dust. A few bucks here and there adds up in the end. But i never expect to gain profit. I think ebay is more of garbage dump.
