B-day wish list
 
Hey guys,
I have a problem with my wife has no idea what to get me for my Birthday and i do not want her to spend too much money for it as i have eveything i want in her. now i do need hooks, CDC, (want a few rite bobbins) ect, ect, but that is a little to specific for me to let her surprise me without either me putting it in an online basket or her getting the wrong items. So does anyone have a good review for a leader tying kit. other than that i think she will get me an xbox 360, all is good i want to play Fornza 3 racing sim. BUT i do not want her spending that much on me as i will not be able to spend that on her so any FF'ing simple and effective suggestions would be appretiated BTW i have till Wed 3 Feb.

First off, Happy Birthday...If you have a fly shop near you a gift certificate would be the answer...She will know you got what you would like, and you get what you really want...

If you dont like the gift card thing and you have a fly shop near you, just tell her to go and buy you tying material, tell her to pick out what ever she wants and then learn to ty new patterns with what she buys. :cool:

I'm for the weekend getaway. Rates at some mom and pop motels near mountain streams and lakes are usually reasonable.

All the gear in the world is worthless if you don't use it.
Go somewhere cool for a long weekend

If you were looking for a leader kit, I was happy with the Orvis kit I bought
around 6 years ago. I've replaced all of the spools several times, using both
Orvis and Rio leader material. Tying different types of leaders can be a lot of
fun, and they do perform differently than extruded leaders.

Hi bloodhound,

I solved the "what to buy me for any occasion" a long time ago. Here is what I do. I take the Feather Craft catalog and mark anything I would like to get with a red marker. I pick all levels of cost and she can decide what she wants to spends. This way it is easy for my wife and I always get something I want and it is always a surprise. Most of the time she picked the more expensive items.

Frank
