Santa Leave Anything Fishy Under Your Tree?

By Joe Cermele

I'd be remiss if I didn't run my usual post-Christmas follow up for anglers, so here it goes...

Under the tree on Christmas morn, I found an awesome new Regal vise. It is awesome because, believe it or not, I have been tying on the same no-name Regal wanna-be vise that I picked up at a flyfishing expo when I was about 18. It always got the job done, but the jaws have become so stiff that I literally have a permanent hard knot under the skin at the base of my thumb from squeezing the jaw spreader at the pressure needed to open them up. I'd probably have to have said knot surgically shaved down at the this point, but maybe over time, thanks to my new Regal that opens like butter, it'll go away. Aside from the vise I got some tiny fish-shaped dishes that will do a fine job of holding soy sauce when I make sushi. My wife loves them (that's sarcasm...she's so over fish-shaped wares). So now it's your turn. Did you find anything fishy under the tree? I'm always curious as to what fellow anglers had on their Christmas lists. Hope you all had a good one.

Got an ice fishing accessory: a High Plains Sheepskin Blizzard Hat to replace my not-as-warm old bomber hat. Can't wait to go walleye fishing.

I didn't get any real fishing gear, but a Cabelas gift card will certainly be useful. Also, got plenty of fishing snacks with beef jerky and beef sticks.

2 ice rod/reel combos, an ice fishing accessory bag with rod holders, boot spikes, boxes of lures, a scoop, fishing line, and a new auger. Santa spoiled me this winter!

GoPro Hero3 for me and anything I buy my boys will be just one less thing I find "mysteriously missing" in the future.

Got a pressure cooker and Columbia fleece lined pants so comfy I ordered anthr pair from Cabelas. Usually get some maple syrup, cashews, smoked oysters, pistachios, jerky and macadamias too. Better yet got the wife a smart phone and haven't heard from her in days. I think I shud txt her to chk-in.

I received a sea bass shaped bottle opener for those enjoyable adult beverages I enjoy consuming.

I received The Boy Scout Fishing Merit Badge Manual from the early 60's. Cool antique.

My wife was incredibly thoughtful and practical. After seeing me use a cuticle scissors to trim hackles, she arranged for my 5-month-old daughter to "purchase" a Dr. Slick micro-tip scissors for me. Based on her recommendations--which she got by looking over my wish lists on Cabelas, Orvis, and Amazon--my in-laws gave me a Skip Morris book on tying bass bugs and a Swiss Army knife. Finally, having seen the sorry shape of my fishing vest, she went to Cabelas to find a replacement, but after reading some reviews and doing a little research, she bought a hip/chest combo pack, instead. I'm in awe.

I bought my own Christmas present. A Redington Fly Rod. I took the rod to a fly fishing store and got a nice reel to balance the set up. I look forward to the Full Moon in May.

My brother got me a sack full of bass tackle and I got him a sack full of ultra light trout gear, looking forward to texas rigging some magnum soft plastics while its still cold and catching some stocked brooders with him. My parents also got me a Bass Pro Shops gift card.
