Camo Recliner

Post by Cowpokey » Sat Oct 05, 2019 10:04 pm

Went up to Cabela's in DE today looking around; wanted to handle a Ruger Bearcat, and see what they had for spotting scopes. Then while I was meandering around I saw this chair, it is the most comfortable recliner I've ever sat in. Figured my wife would shoot the idea down because it's camo...but I just showed her the pictures and she said, "how far is Cabela's, lets go get it tomorrow, I'll buy it for you." Holy cow, that was not the reaction I was expecting...heading back to get one in the morning.

The recliner I have now it leaning to the left and the foot rest is twisted to the left too. It's about 6 years old, the upholstery is still in great shape, but it's time to replace it.

Bonus: If I wear camo in the house, I'll be able to sit in the new recliner and be invisible. :lol:

I try to stay active, and outside. Regularly put 10-15 miles a day on my Hobie kayak (no motor) while fishing, put 100-200 miles a day on my Harley when I go for a cruise, fling 300-500 rounds of lead at paper with my rimfires at the range, rock climb 11c-11d...and when I'm lounging around having a beer, then one more (repeat as needed), a nice recliner is good. My wife and I pay pretty high taxes, well into the top 3% of household incomes in the USA. $600 for a chair is is expensive, but I deserve it...my body is beat up from all the fun I've had so far, might as well be comfortable. 8-)

My recliner was twice that, but it helps me up. Be glad you don't need that. :D
Hobie? Loved ours when we fished big water and the current under salt water bridges. Now that we are fishing farm ponds and floating the river for smallmouth, it's a different style. The mirage drive doesn't fare well in shallow rocky environs. ;)

We have three Hobies; two Outbacks for the Chesapeake Bay, when I'm with Cowkid2 or 'the boy'**, and a Quest 13 for when I'm up in the rocks in the lower Susquehanna river.

Other than being addicted to rimfires, I'm also addicted to kayak fishing.

*Picture of my first Rockfish over 37", on the Susquehanna Flats in 2016...released a few moments after the picture. I got a 38" a couple minutes later. Got one at 40.25" the next spring...my best to date.

**Cowkid1's boyfriend/fiancé...or my wife, or some other fool that doesn't have their own kayak.

Nice, we used to fish for kiptopeake cows for the six weeks they would show up every winter at the concrete ships. Never landed one that big, but hooked a few and enjoyed the sleigh ride. :lol: These days, it's the Commander or Bonefide kayaks and mostly farm ponds and lakes for large mouth bass. Will float the James for smallies when we can set it up. :lol:

I catch quite a few smallies in the Susquehanna River below the Conowingo Dam. That's why I have the Quest 13, wouldn't want to have peddles up in those rocks! Catch quite a few Rockfish in those rocks too, best one so far is a 28" that I got a couple years ago early in the morning late part of July.

People are saying the snakeheads and blue cats are taking over the river, but I haven't caught either one in there...yet.
