You have to play (pay) to win!

It's a well known fact that I enter a lot of raffles, lotteries, auctions etc. I like to win them. That's how I met Bob...when I kept winning auctions at the SoMD CCA banquet 10 or so years ago.

I always play. Only way to win!!

Recently, I came across a FB bass group called the Outlaws Fishing Club, Virginia. They were having a raffle for a custom made rod.

They offered 40 chances (numbers 1-40) at $10 a spot. I chose 3 (wife's b'day) and 33 (no clue why other than my #13 was already taken).

I was just notified that I got lucky and won!

7í, 1/4-1 1/2oz fast action, medium power built on a Century ISS 845 blank.

"Itís one of the most versatile rods you will use. Itís Centuryís autoclave Carbon with graphene resins and TexTreme finish. Very long casting, quick and smooth hooksets and tremendous power."

Charcoal/black non slip Winn grips (I may have him give me a bright color).

Fuji ACS exposed trigger seat for finger to blank contact for sensitivity.

All trim is anodized aluminum, no rubber.

Fuji KW/KT combo stainless black alconite guide set and top.

Now, I may need to sell a rod or 2....stay tuned.


Time to go fishin' again!

Nice rod indeed. Only wish baitcasters was part of my everyday arsenal. But I will knock the dust off of my personal rods this weekend in anticipation of some fun fishing trips.

I bid one grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of tomato soup. Both cold BTW ... I could up the bid if needed to "hot".
