No, I used to lie about how much stuff cost but then I told the truth one time and she didn't seem to mind at all.  Problem is that I buy her better tackle than I buy myself, that must be why she doesn't mind  ;)

all the time from the wife.  She for some reason thinks that I have plenty of stuff already.

My wife could care less. I spent over 450.00 on a new goretex suit last month. Brought it home and dumped it on the dining room table. She said let that be your birthday present. Spent 88.00 at BPS today. She is out of town, but I told her when she called. She flies out on Monday and returns on Thursday.

As long as I stay out of places I should not go, she is fine with me spending on fishing.

When HASN'T the bait monkey got you in trouble ?

But then again, the bait monkey is married to the shoe monkey.....

Works both ways. ;)

Fishfordollars and I are kindred spirits.  My wife could care less, but I always let her know when I've spent, or am about to spend, say a couple of hundred dollars.  She does the same - sometimes.  ;)

No problems at my house...  a few funny looks and head shakes though.  ...lol

We get "fun money" every month to be spent or saved as each sees fit.  I guess it's the adult version of allowance.  I was thrifty for a couple years early on and now have a healthy bank account to support any tackle and trips I want.

Of course.

But my wife knows that bass fishing is my only vice so she lets me alone.

Once upon a time we drove to the Hampton, Virgina Bass Pro Shop to hear a seminar by a local guide and during the Q&A session my wife asked, "How many rods does a guy really need?"

Lots of laughs from the audience and it actually stopped the guide (presenter) in his tracks. Stumped the poor guy.

No one ever did answer the question.

So she does her sewing and I leave her alone and in return I do my bass fishing and she leaves me alone.

And she gives me fishing stuff for my birthday, wedding anniversary and Christmas every year. With some suggestions from me, of course.  ;)

My wife takes me to BPS and Academy for Christmas. We have a limit set, I purchase, she pays, I wrap when we get home, and then I open it when it is time.

Then we go to Macys for her.

I get the same thing from my mom and grandma?

All the time.  She seems to believe that one rod and reel is all I need/ever will need.

Worst part (for her) is getting back into fishing was her idea.  ;)

Not at all. My wife knows fishing is the only thing I do. She will actually ask me if I want to go to BPS. She also knows if she complained, I would remind her of her shoe and purse fetish.

Not yet.  However, my wife is taking my three year old to see a stage production of Wizard of Oz this Sunday in Foxborough, which just happens to have a BPS.  So I will drive them down there and then kill two hours in BPS.  How much money do you think I can spend on myself two weeks before Christmas without getting in trouble?

Isn't it funny when you read the title of a thread and know instantly who started it.  ::)

What is the word "thas"?  What do it mean Bubba?
