DOH!! Things that make you feel stupid

For some reason the drag on my reel was just not working up to par. I like to match the drag to most fish during good water temp times and fight them a little so this bothered me. I was thinking, man this reel worked so well last year, and now I can get drag to work right now matter what I do.

Well this morning I went to get my line from the reel and saw my leader got wrapped up behind the arbor somehow. I took the spool off and got the leader out and see about 2-3' of flouroro wrapped around the "axle". I get all of that out and put in it my pocket.

Drag works great now. Anyone else have one of those goof ups that you cant imagine how you missed it, Or just something stupid in general.

Re: DOH!! Things that make you feel stupid

Saving time going from one mountain stream to the next, I kept my custom made 3 weight that was a wedding present, assembled and just angled it in the CRV...get to the next stream, put the automatic windows up and here that sickening "crack"...luckily it was just the very tip and easily fixed...but not until the next day.

Catch-and-Release wild trout.

Re: DOH!! Things that make you feel stupid

Grabbing my hunting boot in the dark and throwing them in the truck for bear camp. When I go to put them on a have a left from one pair and a right from another. Glad I didn't grab 2 lefts or 2 rights

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Ha!
Grabbing my size 12 hip boots when I thought they were my son's size 7 hip boots that looked identical, only to get that "DUH" look from Jeremy at the stream when he pulled them from the trunk!!!

Do good and disappear........

I stayed up all night to prove to myself I don't snore.
