Misunderestimated Wipers – What’s in a Label?

hybrids and pinot wines

Sitting back with a glass of Rex Goliath Pinot Noir, and wondering just how I could have misjudged those Wipers so badly. Before I go into the short story on the back label of the Rex, I must confess that previous to this, I thought the Hybrid/Wipers were simple bruits who just powered their way through an even match – they won a few, lost a bunch.

Today, a new respect was handed down to me by actually seeing them – running for the sticks and stones in the creek, wrap around them, and pull away – popping loose with an irritating new lip piercing that looks a lot like my synthetic Clousers.

OK, so they won a few today. I cut my leader down to about 3 feet (a 15 pound bass leader!), and 


There’s also a ton of Wiper video in the can waiting for a marathon editing session. All in good time.

    A camelback pack might help in fighting hybrids while drinking wine. Trying to hold a wine glass while double haulings can be difficult. Glad you are having fun battling those brutes. Enjoy it while it lasts. (Same for the wine.) Those are very special times you are enjoying.

    Just noticed the google ads. Haa, apparently they key on the post title. Now they are advertising “wipers’, windshield wipers that is. Put the skids on that. shannon
