Hi George,

You really made out well. I got a new digital camera, a tripod and a new kitten. Won't get the new cat until January.

Frank

Hi George,

Sounds like you made out like a bandit. Maybe because Ohio is closer to the North Pole than Houston, Santa had to offload a lot of extra gifts he was having to carry back .

Like Frank, I also got a kitten (from my daughter - guess who really wanted the kitten ). Wasn't looking for an extra dependent, but there'll sure be entertainment when I get out my Echo practice rod later!

But the gift which really made my day was a brand new Sage Z-Axis 11-foot 7-weight 4-piece. Now just have to figure out how to "switch" cast!

Merry Christmas!
Neil

I got a cabelas stowaway 5pc, 5wt rod and reel, for backpacking, a trout unlimited bighorn float tube, new bootie waders and boots, some polar fleece, some new danner pronghorn boots for chuckar season, a hodgeman chest rig, and some flies and a fly box to keep them in. Since this is my 2nd season my wife wanted me to have my own stuff instead of borrowing my cousins. lucky me for having a awesome wife.

Let me guess since you are not getting the kitten until Jan local breeder of specialty cats? I have my youngest daughter's two oldsters.

My presents were 1 gig ram for laptop...st croix musky blank...the sale Stu Apte Diamondback 8 wt from Cortland...an old model orvis vortex 6 with USA on the foot to go on it...cat grooming brushes from my daughter so that I can properly maintain her cats until she finally graduates from her six year plan...

Wow, that was a haul! Curious why you wanted both a nine foot 6-weight & a 5-weight Z-Axis?
