People will pay it but I think I can firmly say a 400 dollar rod does not fish 4 times nicer than a 100 dollar rod. The truth is fish are dumb and you could catch a cooler full of them with a cane...

I think manual trans suck. Bumper to bumper traffic, having your friend drive your truck up the ramp while you load the boat, eating a hamburger while you drive... I just don’t miss it at all man.
