"Geez, you didn't get this excited when your children were born."

"Well, they didn't come with an Orvis box full of carp fly awesomeness and cool carp stickers for my Jeep, did they?"

I wish I had a better filter. You know, the one that keeps you from blurting out the first fool thing that pops into your head after your wife makes a snide comment about your carp obsession.

Anyway, received my share of loot from the 2013 McTage Fly Swap and, yeah, I was stoked. I guess it showed.

Many props to Trevor over at Fly Carpin' for another great swap.
