    I have a box full of different and rare pheasant skins. I am usually on the look out for them, i just find the colors of them to be fasinating. I have a plan for a photo project with them one of these days.

    I like collecting old Bamboo rods and old reels. I like the way they look hanging in my office, plus casting one on te river makes me think of and try to imagine all the fish stories the rod would tell if it could talk. My most recent purchase was an old Hardy boo rod and a pristine Ocean City No.36, pretty fun como to cast drys with, though I haven't got a fish on it yet.

    I love the No 36! I forgot about those I have quite a few of them too.
