Cool Christmas present from my brother

http://i.imgur.com/ZzhxN.jpg

My brother Caleb, who lives in Georgia, is a chainsaw artist. He makes bears, eagles, and whatnot. HE also does other art with wood. This is a map of my family's yearly vacation spot. The lakes are made of birch bark and the roads/fish are wood-burned on. The musky at the bottom represents a huge one i caught a few years ago. This has no fly fishing references, but I thought you would still be interested ;P

Hey that is a nice bit of art! Luck to have a talented brother! Very nice gift! How big was your Muskie?

The musky was a whopper at 46" and I caught it on a red/white Dardevil. There are two good lakes for musky, two good ones for largemouths, and one for panfish. Its so far back in the woods and nobody ever fishes it, so the scenery is stunning and the fishing is even better ;D
