Merry Christmas

With only 4 days to go until Christmas, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. This is a wonderful time of year, and it is even more so now that Trey is here. With this as my first Christmas being a dad, and my second as an uncle I am so excited. Trey is not old enough yet to understand, but my little nephew Bryce is. Amy and I are very excited to see the look on his face when he opens one particular present we got him. Trey's primary present from me this year is his lifetime sportsmans license. Not that he will know what it is, other than wanting to eat it, its benefit will be seen in future years. Right now Trey thinks everything is something that is to be eaten, even his feet. Our little guy just makes everyday that much more special, and I can't remember what life was like before him. I have attached a few Christmas pics I took this year, and you can see how much he has changed.

I also have added a poll just to see what my readers prefer to say during this time of year. Personally, I choose to say Merry Christmas, because Christ is the reason for the season and I don't want that to be left out. I know that there is some debate right now about which is politically correct, and honestly I could care less about political correctness. So please feel free to vote in the poll and leave a comment if you feel so inclined.

As far as fishing goes, I plan to get out a couple times during the week between Christmas and New Years. The long term forecast once again is for rain/snow during that week, but I have all intentions of going unless icy conditions prohibit. Stay in touch in the coming year for more fly patterns, book reviews, detailed trip reports, and conversation.

Same to you, Merry CHRISTmas Travis. The reason for the season is spelled out in the first 6 letters in Christmas. Well, I hope you're able to get out on the river soon, I think I will try to go fishing sometime late this week or early next week, most likely on the Nantahala River in Franklin NC all depends. We may need to wait a few days for the trout to thaw out from the frozen streams before venturing out...:) Gosh, to tell you the the truth, I think I have forgot what a trout looks like, as it's been 3 months since I've fished. I've been concentrating on fly tying for next season... Anywho, Merry Christmas once again, and tight lines.

Merry Christmas - A lifetime sportsman's license is a fine gift idea! I will have to remember that for the years ahead as friends and family start having little ones.
