I feel your exactly right. If he doesn't want to pay more a little quality, then thats his choice. But he is close to you so I can how hard it is to say NO. I have these friends that i used to fish with (thank god its over) and every time they would come and fish on our boat or off a dock or something, instead of fishing, they would pick apart my tackle boxx and inspect everything. They would use and lose my stuff and put backlashes on all of my baitcasters. But i always let them use my stuff cause it was hard to say no.
I have a CLOSE family member (so it's hard to say no) that believes that $29.99 is too much to pay for a rod/reel combo, South Bend line does not need to be changed regularly (just when you don't have enough on the reel to cast), and the beetle spin is sufficient for everything up to largemouth. So he ends up with stuff that can't handle the day and ends up having to use one of mine. I bought two cheap Diawa Samurai combos I bring when he goes so he leaves my "good stuff" unmolested. Is that wrong of me to feel that way?

My fishing partner is my dad and he gets me annoyed EVERY time we go fishing! Hes always talking and thinking hes pro when I'm thinking of what to do next or something. I cheer up a little after the trip when we go to McDonalds and I talk about how I caught more and bigger fish than him! LOL
I fish with my dad mostly as well but he's the complete opposite. He's got a severe case of no confidence. He claims he's my-bad luck charm and that I always catch more/better fish when he's not around. Kinda depressing but I make him come fishing with me as often as I can. He's also one that refuses to upgrade his equipment. Still using a Shakespeare spin cast combo he's had since I was a kid that grinds and grinds on the retrieve. But he enjoys using it for some reason so I keep my mouth shut.

So why do I put up with him? Well he's a former Marine and Army National Guard Iraq veteran and I know growing up was tough for him as his Mom died when he was a kid and his father is worse than he his in terms of people to get along with.
