Default Re: All I Want for Christmas...

RIP,

I think your wish is EXACTLY in the Chritmas spirit - something for someone else who truly needs that gift. My father passed away in 2002 under the same kind of circumstances - our whole family felt that it was a blessing when it was over and he was out of his physical pain and mental confusion. I understand your wish, and will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers during this holiday season.

And regarding a gift from Santa? I would like a new pair of knees, but since that is not likely; I would be very happy to get the opportunity to take my grandson fly fishing for the first time.

Rip- Wow I saw my dad suffer and fade and he was/is the greatest man I ever knew and I miss him even greatly 10 years later, but I'm glad his suffering ended. I will pray Sir that your father's suffering will end.

In reality I'm not really setting my sites to high for Christmas, I do hope that I'll receive Gary Borger's new book 'Fishing the Film" it's the first of a new series that will be coming out. However, if I could ask for anything I'd ask for a Rotary Vise, but I haven't yet completely made up my mind as to which one I want.

Rip,
Been there, I feel your pain.

Hoping for a spey line for my gift. Got the rod in Aug. Got the reel for my birthday in Oct. Really want to learn that rod!

Understand Rip, and bet he thinks the same. Gotta be tough when you were once so much alive. Best to you guys.

I want some new tennis shoes to work-out. I started working out so I can keep up rock hopping with the others this summer. Last year was risky, and slow.

Going to sound mushy, but I would wish for another year of fishing as good as the last one with my good friend Gary. But I wouldn't mind out-fishing him once or twice!
