Life Changed: I got cheaters
Recently, while on a fantastic small stream with Lexi Bell, I made the final decision to get a set of cheater glasses. I've been bitching for a few years now and finally hit bottom when it took me about two hundred attempts to find the damn hole on a 14 parachute Adams. After finding the hole, I noticed, ( as I have many times in the past few seasons), that it took me way too long to tie a knot that I used to do in 8-10 seconds.
Trying to keep my manliness and refuse my lovely Wife's suggestions of getting my eyes tested and getting some real glasses, I went to the local drug store. Picked up some reader/cheater glasses. Life is good now! Holes started appearing. Knots are now a breeze! I got a little dizzy after the first few knots when I looked up and had to row outta something but cheaters rock.

We will make a wing sauce with liquid geritol for you, Schwert. Btw, try the new V.2 BlisterLip sauce, and if THAT isn't hot enough, ask for some extra death paste.
I should be down there tomorrow...

Yeah, I'm there. I've been seriously considering a pair of sunglasses with built-in cheater lenses that look like bifocals. Smith makes some, it'd be great to hear of anyone's experience with them - stumble much?

Haha. I did the same thing about 4 years ago. Couldn't find the hole (insert joke here). Stopped at the drug store on the way to the river- life changed. We get to the river and my buddy starts giving me shit as we're setting up. I handed him the glasses and he said, "Holy shit. I have to get some of these!"
It's not complete with out a shinny old lady chain though. You might as well go full on...

Never tried the Smith's but I think I'd be stumbling all over.
Rideit - Fire up the flat top and fryer. I'll be in for lunch.

I won't be down there until later, Schwert. Hopefully they get it right, I just made that special up yesterday. Maybe see you for dinner/apps?

This is why I use 6/0 Octopus hooks and fish for stripers.
Big line, big hooks, big bait, big fish.
Occasionally, however, I do break out the Ben Franklin glasses when I get frustrated.In order to properly convert this thread to a polyasshat thread to more fully enrage the liberal left frequenting here...... (insert latest democratic blunder of your choice).
