    Go ahead..you can type 1 handed:big_smile::big_smile:

    After catching a flatty in a rocky area,I decided to cut 2 feet of line off and re-rig.Guess I was excited to get back out fishing...finshed tying and picked up my rod...most of you guessed what came next....never ran the line back thru the last 2 eyes and tip,line was hanging down from the middle of the rod:dribble:
    Dohh!!:big_smile:

    I usually get in a hurry and miss some of the middle eyes. I hate it when that happens.

    That's ok though since I have never caught anything that's bragging size I'm sure if I did I'd probably done the same thing if not worse!:lol::lol::lol:

    No, I would NEVER do that (yeah right!) :tounge_out: My favorite is putting my line through the eyelets, rigging up and then it not casting right. Upon closer inspection, I realize that I put the line through the eyelets, but my line became twisted around the rod...:roll_eyes:

    Been there done that:tounge_out:. Also have tied up and then noticed I had the bead on the rod side of the sinker:crazy:. Also decided to switch hooks to a different size and cut one off and tied the same hook back on before I noticed:crazy:. Also decided to add a cigar float and cut the line and re-tied then noticed that I still didn't slide the cigar float on:confused2::crazy:. I'm sure theres more, If there is a way to screw it up then I've probably done it:lol:.

    my biggie is after rigging up and i go to cast i get hooked up on something and get the backlash for well you know. then spend the next 15 to 20 min ripping line. Or my fav, fishing and looking at the tip only to find out ther is a twist between the tip and last eye while a major hook up comes on. I must admit i have done alot of stupid things and became prefect at it as well.lol
