Just received an email from a rod company. It excitedly introduced a rod "designed to catch more trout". So all this time it's actually the rod that catches trout, except this one is designed to catch MORE. Apparently for years rod builders have been building rods to catch some trout, a few trout, several trout and now this breakthrough to catch MORE trout.
Who buys into this stuff?

Hum, I must have got the rod designed to catch less fish.... I do believe there are thing you can design into a rod to help the fisherman be a better fisher. For example, if the rod mends better then other rods that will help you catch more fish, if it had more feel it might help.... if it has sonar capabilities it will help you catch more fish.

Orivs is the queen of this kind of nonsense. Like their latest for example in describing the new Helios "Covert"..." TOTALLY BLACKED OUT, this small batch 9 foot 5 weight eliminates reflection and flash from the sun that spooks wary fish. The Covert is the finest fly rod in the world with the added dimension of being a wicked-looking rod, the likes of which have never been seen." That's right folks, "the finest fly rod in the world"!!! and you should buy it cause it looks cool too. I can taste vomit in the back of my throat when I read this kind of stuff.
