Lucien puts a magnet under the white sheet.  Holds the hook up like that.

They won't elect me.  Once they heard I want to change "The Red, White and Blue" to "Blue, Blue and Blue" ... I think my campaign would be over.

Their whole lives are there to read like an open book, I hope it doesn't bite them in the butt down the road.  When Suzy is up for that CEO job later in life I hope those pictures from Spring Break don't surface.  Johnny might get canned if that offhand comment he posted 30 years ago is taken out of context. 

Didn't take the internet for that to happen.  Look at some of the political candidates and appointees over the last decade or so.  Some are in their 40s and 50s and college photos and girlfriends suddenly pop out of the woodwork to ruin 20+ years of good deeds and service.

My fishing videos will probably prevent me from being president some day.  

I can see it now:  "You think the current president's golfing is taking a lot of time?  If you elect Mike, you'll have to spend time on the water with him to get anything done !!!"

Or it's just an indication of the dwindling numbers of fly anglers.  Considering how few I see, no matter where I am in the Country, I wouldn't be surprised if the fly fishing industry is losing money across the board.  Maybe not losing money, but they're not making huge profits.  So, the idea of dropping "parts" sales in lieu of completed rod sales make sense.
