Yesterday was pretty fun, and with another 5pm work day, I figured I could repeat it. Nope. Nothing but pain as some days are good and some days are bad. FYI. knitting a sweater is a fishing term about getting a big old wind knot in your fishing line. Maybe it should be “and unknitting a sweater.

    Cool little baby yellowtail. At least shark activity was better than a skunk day.
    OMG! I was wondering why you didn't just cut that terrible nest and either use the remaining spool, splice another section, or simply buy a new roll for $20 and save your time/effort? Anyways as frustrated as things were you were very patient and seemed determined on getting it out no matter what. In the video we see it was over 5mins of detangling, but since it was fast-forwarded at 20x I'm guessing real time was actually around 1.5 hrs. Geeez! just go to sleep and buy a new roll for $20 πŸ™‚ After selling all the 'AllAboutTheBait' shirts recently, I thought you deserved a break away from the Studio…but nope…it looks like you are eager to start knitting a bunch of personally 'hand-made' Power Pro Sweaters for us πŸ™‚ you are too generous ha! Just pickin at ya Steve. keep up the great work.

    You have WAY MORE PATIENCE than I do! The only way that I would have unscrambled that quagmire of a bird's nest is, if I was in some survival situation and was the only line that I had. Great job!

    Not sure if you read every comment but here goes…
    Your videos are much more than just a time killer for me. I work a job that robs me of sleep and keeps me under stress at all times. your videos are a godsend for me. I always get excited when I see a Steve Video! You always provide entertainment and a good break from my crap work. In 4 years and 261 days, I will put it all behind me and chase fish full time. Keep putting out vids and its not always that successful fishing that keeps me tuned in…
