And a variable speed Delta bench grinder for my woodworking tools.

Whaddid you get?

Hilarious! I did get coal from a friend as a gag. I also got a Kenmore food saver and 2 rolls of extra bags.

The best part of Christmas so far has been watching my 3yo open up all her gifts , this year she is really into Christmas.

Santa, if you read this, good work this year!.

Enjoy your day everyone!

Doooooooooodes!!!!!


I scored a new Shimano 201, in the box with wood handles!!!! My wife got it from one of the drivers at her work, the guy just doesn't fish anymore and she damned neared fainted when he told her. I needed a diaper when I opened the wrapper this morning! Of course, I'd rather have one of these than a new Lexus!

It now sits atop a new 10' 8-12 Lami Cert Pro, and it gonna get a workout tomorrow!!!

YEEEEE-HAWWWW!!!!!

Bear,
that is what Christmas is all about.

I have a six month old boy and he did pretty well tearing into presents... But he would rather eat the paper than play with toys...

what a great day...

My best present was the smile on my fishing partners face when I gave him an 1141 I built.

He says his wife is sleeping on the couch tonight so he can keep his new rod warm... But knowing his wife, He will be on the couch tonight... and probably tomorrow too. \:D

The new BBQ was a close second! Thanks mom and dad!

Well, I didn't get anything useful. I received a trout bobblehead.
Gave my dad a copy of Jed Davis' book on spinner fishing for steelhead.

Hi All

Some consider me lucky. My wife loves to fish and is good at it. So Santa gave her a new Lamiglas Certified Pro and Breathable Waders (now she won't use mine). Come February, Solduc here we come!!

A half dozen Corkies: an orange glitter, a metallic blue, a chartreuese, a pink pearl, a rainbow, and a flaming red. Ten yards of genuine polyester yarn (orange). One Eagle Claw size 4 hook, a spool of 25# Shakespeare Omni monofilament and three chrome barrel swivels. Oh yeah, I should also mention about four inches of pencil lead, too.

And it does not stop there. I also got a ball cap and two quart-size zip-lock bags (to carry my newly acquired tackle).

Now all I need is a rod and a reel next Christmas (or my B-day), and I'm all set to go fishing

Santa knew just what Daddy needed. He brought an entire workshop for my 1 1/2 yr old son. That means that I get my tools back...... oh....and he gets to smash things with a plastic hammer. Like his sister. Oops. Guess santa should have brought sister a Helmet and some safety glasses.

XMAS was spent over on the Beast Coast in MA with the in-laws this year.

I must have been a good boy this year as I got:

A gift certificate for a trip with The Really Big One! \:D

A new Filson Hat. \:D

Funds for a new TH Custom Rod SAGE GSH 290 rod! Wooo! \:D

Non fishing stuff included Husky Hush Pupy Slippers, a cordless powerdrill, some books, some DVD's (Indy Jones box set), Gerber Tool, and other little things.

My 11 month old daughter had a good time opening up her gifts. Like the other children, she really like the wrapping paper and ribbons/bows.

The truly scary moment was when she got a toy cell phone as a gift. We've never ever let her play with a phone, but she immediately picked it up, pressed the buttons, and put it to her ear when it started ringing! It's amazing what those little ankle biters pick up on their own!

GZ,
Spent christmas eve camped up at steelhead campground.worked that and just south of there for a big 0?I have always had luck by now.It was beautifull up there though.no better way to spend christmas in my opinion.Christmas day was bright blue with the snow level right over my head.The view up the valley never stopped taking my breath away.

Christmas was put off this year due a death in the family.We are going to try and celebrate tomarrow.

Edit: I did get a bottle of crown royal and a great time around a campfire friday night with Foggedin.Yay we got foggedin alright. \:D
