I took a quick trip to Cabela’s today.

Before any shopping could be done, there was an urgent need for some good ol’ fashioned “health” food.  A buffet was in order!

I went to Cabela’s to try and find an 8wt  TFO Clouser and some line. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any in stock.  Looks like I’m going to have to do some online shopping.

A dead honey badger... always bad luck

Something's not right here...

All wasn’t lost though.  I was able to pick up a few fly tying materials.

I’m working on building up some materials for bass flies.  I picked up a few colors of bunny strips  today and a grab bag full of all sorts of randomly colored materials.  I also threw in some size 20 hooks to see if I could tie up some midges (for Trout).


On the way out wifey decided to pick up some candy.  I couldn’t resist grabbing a bag of circus peanuts.  This candy was always one of my grandfather’s favorites. Their addictive texture and sweetness always brings back fond memories of my earlier years.

I’ll give this Cabela’s run 3/5 stars.  I’m kinda bummed I didn’t come home with a new Bass rod but they did have one of my favorite candies.


Is there a candy you would trade your favorite fly rod for?  Do you love Cabela’s meatloaf?  Let us know in the comments below!

    I do love those Cabela’s grab bags.  You just have to sort through them a little to make sure you are getting good stuff.

    My grandfather was a big circus peanut lover too.  They bring back such happy memories!
