What did Santa bring you?

So were you on the nice list or the naughty list this year? What did Santa bring you?

I must have been on the naughty list. I didn't get anything fishing related! But I did get a drill press for my wood shop, which I really wanted. And a GPS from the in-laws. I guess that could be considered fishing related...

Got a fly tying bench from Daughter and Son-in-Law, "Saltwater Flies of the Northeast" from my son, Bass Pro Shop Gift Certificate from Wife and another from Daughter. Made out pretty well, all things considered!

My Golden Retreiver brought me a possum yesterday...

She was just happily carrying it around the yard like she does her stuffed animal toy. The Possum was non the worse for wear, just waited till she went back inside and shook himself awake and went about his business.

Well - did great (as it appears several others did too) - but a long wait till spring to use some of it.

I got a 4 piece TFO Signature Series rod (9' - 5 wt). which according to the supplier in Canada these in 4 piece are made from the same blanks as Professional Series with some improvements in guides. It is fitted the rod with the Pflueger Summit reel and a Rio Select Trout line.

I also started my Fly Tying adventures by ordering a Danvise which is still caught in the holiday mail.

Under the tree was a couple issues of FlyFusion (seems a good magazine where the writing still outdoes the ads), a fly fishing calendar, and for those days when I am on the lakes an Eagle Cuda 168 depth/fish finder.

Considering myself lucky. Here's to an early spring!

I forgot one important thing! My father-in-law got a pontoon boat from his wife, and me being his one and only fishing partner, I guess that means I got one too! It came complete with an electric trolling motor, leaning bar, pedestal seats, and just about every option he could want. Guess who was responsible for helping his wife pick out everything he needed?

I got one of those from my wife last Christmas. You'll be very happy with it.

Well Fred -

I am breathing a sigh of relief in reading about socks and shovels, because I was feeling a little introspective after your recent quote...

Quote:
life long pursuits that require persistance and nurturing
because it made me realize that nurturing and persistence are two-way streets and only as meaningful as the way they are received, not solely a function of the giver.

Clearly you are in a very good relationship, God bless you both!

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

I got a Garmin street finder so now I can find my way into (and probably, more importantly, out of) the many UDL's both near and far.

Now, no more missing that critical sidestreet/junction on the darkest of nights, only to arrive too late to catch the best of the tide.
