The Culvert selects the best ____________ of the year!

How does he do it?  He always carries a ______________, that's how!!!
The coming of fall is always bittersweet, since it means the close of much of the best fishing of the year.  But fall is also when we here at The Culvert review products, just in time for your holiday shopping! Stay tuned for unbiased reviews on the latest and greatest products to hit the shelves in 2011, and get a jump on 2012.  We don't sugarcoat anything here at The Culvert, least of all our reviews.  In fact, while we haven't yet decided what products to review, we've already written the unbiased review itself, and as soon as the products start rolling into the central office, we'll be on the water testing 'em !  Read on...

We all have one - that favorite hat, or pair of slippers - that thing which is perfect, and made so because it has grown with us, over time.  So much so, in fact, that it's hard to say where we stop, and it begins. The problem, of course, is that these things never start that way.  That kind of perfect comes only with time…or does it? Had you told us that the wait was over, we wouldn't have believed it, until now.  But it's true, and it's our hope that you won't just take our word for it.  Until then, our word will have to suffice.  

Perhaps on occasion, somebody pulls a fast one on English Jonny.  Sometimes ol' Brayshaw gets bamboozled.  But it's a rare product, indeed, that can impress us both.  But with ________________ we have both found our "perfect pair of slippers", and despite our differing shoes sizes, we both agreed that ________________ "fit" perfectly, right from the start.

The first thing we noticed, the moment we took _________________ out of the box, was the exquisite craftsmanship.  No, it's not often that one describes ________________ in terms normally reserved for a Stradavarius, but then again, the ___________________ from ___________________ is simply no ordinary _____________________.  Is this sort of attention to detail necessary?  No, probably not.  Certainly not if one's goal is simply to catch fish.  But with ________________,  catching fish becomes an experience.

And catch fish we did. The _______________ is a work of art, for sure.  But it's more than that. From the moment we reached the water, the ________________ from _________________ performed flawlessly. Jonny netted the largest fish of the season moments after our arrival at the water's edge, and while the crowd came to see his fish, it was the __________________ that drew all of the "oohs" and "ahhhs".  Could he have caught that fish without his _________________?  Not likely, and everybody knew it.  But there wasn't enough gold in Fort Knox to make Jonny part with his new _________________, such was his admiration.

Not to put to fine a point on the matter, but the _______________ is simply the last __________________ you will ever need to buy.  Do you need it to catch fish?  Maybe not. Do you need it to look good?  Maybe not.  

But we see no reason why, at a reasonable $ __, ______, you can't do both.


  1. I hope you won't mind if I borrow this template. I've been struggling with wrapping up my review of tin split shot and this is just the thing.

  2. I'm going to have to put this ___ on my wish-list...for sure!

  3. somewhere in ohio, a young man or woman might not be getting the education they deserve.

  4. Which probably means the collective IQ of Ohio will increase.
