A Tarragindi man has made the monumental mistake of believing he only needed sinkers, after making the journey to BCF Greenslopes last Sunday morning.
Jake Healsmith-Gold, 24, realised his mistake when the doors of the Logan Road store opened.
“My only bag of sinkers fell victim to a snag in Tallebudgera Creek last month, so I thought I should probably restock them,” Mr Healsmith-Gold told Creek to Coast.
“When I got there, it was like my eyes were opened, and I thought it was best to restock a few extra bits of my kit while I was instore.”
Jake made good use of BCF’s 3 for $25 soft plastic deal, as well as the 30% discount on Savage Gear braid because “my line is stuck in that bloody snag too!”
He couldn’t resist the Shimano spinning combo out the front either, as well as a scaler and filleting knife for good measure.
Store manager “Robbo” told Creek to Coast that it was like a bear to honey.
“He kept saying that he deserved a new stick after his recent promotion at work,” Robbo said.
“I like his style, I’d do the same if I was him.”
Local sources have confirmed that Mr Healsmith-Gold is yet to have success with his newly acquired gear, but it’s still better than “a day in the office.”
