|I left decoys, solo weights, and several long lines in a decoy sled. |
Add a foot of snow, which melted and refroze, and now I have this mess.
|After thinking to myself in January 2013,|
"I need to re-rig about 40 of these decoys
this summer," I ended up having to buy
700 feet of decoy line in January 2014
to finish the job as the decoys get
pressed into service again.
But like the 12-month fly angler who studiously crafts his or her next batch of flies, I don't mind the work - it's the surprises that drive me nuts. Last night found me up until 1am replacing some fabric decoy cord and bad knots with Tanglefree PVC decoy line and Drake aluminum crimps. It was fun - but it was a job. Twenty more days of hunting season - let's hold this train together as it barrels down the tracks!
