RIP favorite reed of mine.......

Postby mccree79 » Fri Aug 11, 2006 1:59 pm

A horrilble event has taken place........my reed spilt to my Foiles SMH. This was just not any reed, it was MY REED. Cut by me, shaved by me, even had it "flexed" to make it louder.... Oh yes...the great times me and my reed had. Impressing paid hunters at the club, making other guides mad because we had just stole hunters from them. Oh yes....we called people well......and sometimes we even called birds. We always made excuses well too , "well of course Joe kills more birds....he has the hill pit". Yes, my reed and I had some good memories over the last 3 years. Now he is gone. So......I cut a new reed, everything will be better now. :toofunny:

I always hunt with a "he". A "she" reed couldn't turn gees like my manly "he" reed.

Plus it would probably keep going on and on.. and get really annoying after a while.

Am I the only one who finds it odd that he calls something that he blows on a he. :eek: :toofunny:

Just kiddn', how long did that reed last you? I can only get a reed to last me a couple of months tops. And I don't shave my reeds super thin like a lot of guys do.

It lasted over 2 years.....by far the longest a reed has ever lasted me. I replaced reeds in my other goose calls that I used less. I think reeds last longer in my Foiles call because of the soft plastic used for the guts.
