    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?
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    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
