ever had one of them days........? So, last night it was sprinckling, I had 3 fresh gills and three shad, time to fish, right? I get in my truck, I'm headin' to the lake, 62 degree water, maybe I can get a flatty. 1 mile down the road, I don't know why, I looked in the bed of my truck and discovered mt tackle bag had been stolen, so I thought. I instantly pulled over just to confirm my fears, gone! U-turn witht the boat and quick call to the sheriff(so he could tell me to basicly kiss my gear goodbye). By this time I'm sweating, shaking and pacing back and forth, I'm sure ya'll realize it's a big deal, some hooks are 3 bucks a pop. Took some deep breaths and tried to calm down, said to the wife, "I gotta go to Cabela's NOW!". I haven't worked in a while and don't have alot of money, but I had 30 bucks in gift cards and my wife hooked me up with 20 in cash, replace my whole arsenal with 50 bucks, haha, but I tried. I ended up with 4/0, 7/0 and 8/0 Gamma circles, and 7/0, 6/0 and 4/0 kahles, swivels and beads. Two tackle buddies and a little box to keep em in. Called my buddy, he never uses kahles anymore and told me he has alot of hooks for me, thanks to God. It will take me a long time to rebuild, but in the scope of things, the Lord gives and the Lord takes away, I have prayed that whoever took my gear will be somehow used by God for His Glory. I still have my boats, poles and health. It's only stuff, right? I guess the worst of the "hit" is my lead, about 25 lbs of no rolls, and I don't have any lead to pour more, all I had at home is egg sinkers, I guess I used eggs for years and they'll do for now. My boat registration and my disposable camera, w/pictures, and my sense of security. I don't think I will be able to restock my river gear for some time, but, they didn't get my river lead, it was in my house. I spent two hours last night tying leaders, I'm going to fish today and tomorrow, (I hope), and I'm going to continue to pray for the thief, what else can a guy do................................?
