My problem is not so much buying new gear, unless to replace worn out, broken, lost or simply poor quality, but in not chucking out the old stuff, especially when it comes to my tackle box. I have Ivan marks sticks, billy Makin canal greys and other assorted similar vintage floats that will probably still be in there when I finally pop my clogs. (Unless of course I donate them to the tree decoration club, where many of their compatriots went and hence why I have no full sets of anything)

Not addicted.

I like having nice gear but i haven't bought anything fishing related since last October maybe, pretty much have everything i need.

Next purchase will be another keepnet for the Burton Joyce match on the Trent but that's a necessity as per the clubs rules.
I'm thinking of buying a second one incase of net limits with the amount I'm going to catch. :LOL: :p
