I didn't get any fishing stuff but rather camping gear (which leads to fishing). I got a Cabelas Cot Tent. It's like a lawn lounger with a tent on it. It's really cool and sets up in a minute. Much more comfortable than the bed of my truck.

Pleased to report that I received my Renzetti Presentation 4000 Cam Series vice . . . plus a Renzetti Carry Pouch + Tool Caddy. With all the inclement weather lately, I'm now prepared to commence tying flies (rotary style) in preparation for Spring 2010.

A waterproof camera for all the big fish to be caught in 2010 if my knees allow.Much less bulky than the waterproof case housing my current camera.Speaking of pics these are of the 3 steelies I got on my trip at the end of October.The smallest is about 6-7lbs,the midsize 7-8,the biggest 9-10lbs.Emailed to me from the guide's camera they were sized too small to do anything with.Over xmas thanks to my brother they were resized enuf to allow for posting however poor the image quality.post-355-126201379561_thumb.jpgpost-355-126201721498_thumb.jpgpost-355-126201727784_thumb.jpg

Nice fish. Oh, do I crave to feel a fish like that right now pulling on my string. Going crazy right now. Rivers at flood stage and waiting for the ice to reform to a safe level. Nothing to do but tie flies and swim jigs.

 

By the way, Ron, all of your flies are done! In my partial opinion, they look fabulous. I think you will be happy with them.

Rich,

 

It sounds like you really want to move to TN.

 

Steve,

 

That is an awsome piece of hardware. Since I do not know what you used before, I don't know how you will use the "rotary' feature. There are a lot of videos out there. I like Al and Gretchen Beatty's book on the topic.

 

I got a stream thermometer and a great book by Lefty Kreh. More on that later.

I caught a bra out of the river while fishing on Christmas Day, does that count?

 

Boot dryers for my wading boots, would like to have a river de-icer.

Norm...Only if they were filled with something pleasant. Nudge, nudge.

 

I got auger and some ice fishing stuff via gift certificates.

 

Looking to decrease my load of fishing junk and organize better. 'course been saying that for the last 10 years. If I took all the gear I actually used in the last 15 years it would probably amount to less than 10% of the bulk I have. Furthurmore I could reduce that load to the the things that actually produced to a very small managable amount.

 

well my kids will never have to buy tackle I guess.

Mike . . . along with my new vice, I purchased a copy of Mike Holt's DVD entitled, "Rotary Fly-Tying Techniques." He also has his own website that you may be interested in checking out . . . www.rotaryflytying.com. On a final note, what's the title of the Beatty's rotary fly tying book?

After seeing Jonn use a thing around his neck to keep warm, I came across an article in a fishing magazine touting Buff Headgear. I go this for both running and fishing and it worked GREAT! I ran 6 miles yesterday morning and I think it was about 2 out. This item has lots or ways it can be used. Liked it a lot.

The Fever Tree and Fentimans are the best so far.

 

 

The vodka and tonic make a perfect blend with the cheese.

Steve,

 

Rotary Fly-Tying Techniquesby Al and Gretchen Beatty. Besides techniques it reviews about a dozen vises. Renzetti gets good marks. The techniques are basically the same. Of course once I get something it leads to wanting more. Now I am really interested in the Norlander automatic bobbin.Check that on the Norvise web site via Google. Thanks for the link.

New HP computer with 8gigs of ram, and a terrabyte hard drive. Things are a bit speedier than they were before! LOL

 

It wasn't that long ago (1992) when my computer could only hold 10 Megabytes of ram and then, 1 megabyte cost about $400. At those rates, 8 gigs of ram back then would have cost over $3 MILLION!

Adding memory is on my list of things to do.

Along with updating everything I didn't when the last system crash took place.

 

Started using Google Chrome browser recently.

MUCH faster than Firefox (or IE)....but certain apps just don't work on it.

 

Ah, screw it....who am I kidding?

I just need a new computer!

:huh:

He forgot to mention the flyrod. I'm guessing a Sage. 8wt.

 

The headgear is to hide identity. Ditto on the shades.

 

The new running routine to become fast enough to wade from spot to spot without being recognized.

 

The lures and the winch is just a front. He's haunced over a Dyna-King (not the Harley) spinning the worlds most perfect diver right now.
