DAAANG!! Like a G6?

Next thing you know, you'll be sippin sizzurp...
No Luke. Like a G650. The 50 has an extra two feet of cabin diameter. Holy shit I can't believe I have to explain this.

I do not know what sizzurp is. Is that a new single malt scotch I should be aware of? Perhaps a limited production sourced from an artisan enclave?

My best thing is definitely my cabin on Big Twin Lake in Winthrop (well, it is at least weathertite, and will be habitable buy mid summer!) My worst thing was leaving my old trusty Browning B-80 leaning on the front of my brothers truck and subsequently run over in Montana (luckily I had my Beretta Silver Pigeon O/U backup for the rest of the trip!)! Second best thing is my new Beretta Xplor autoloader-sweet shot gun!

2 through 10wt Zaxis quiver, Ferrari Testarossa, and a G650. Not that I'm bragging or anything.


Helicopter, it was supposed to be a helicopter. A plane like that can't get you into the deep wilderness for a multiple day float excursion with countless HUGE and HUNGRY fish.

iagree

We use a helicopter at work on occasion. I often day dream of the places in BC and AK that it could take you fishing (big sigh).

Two new surfboards bought off the rack from two different surf shops, some new wetsuit booties and gloves, and finally got my sweet custom 8' longboard (that I pre-paid in late Summer 2009) delivered. You can't hurry an artist! Especially one you foolishly pre-paid! It was worth the wait!
Oh, yeah, and the only fish-related stuff I bought were some hooks, lead weights for salmon trolling, & leaders (none of which delivered any pleasure), and a cool stainless steelhead concocted by a welder (and starving "metal artist") friend of mine who doesn't fish, but calls himself a "metalhead."

Wrong. The only aircraft a fisherman should own is a DeHavilland Beaver seaplane.

OK, maybe a heli with pontoons is acceptable too. Or both.

A pre-college program for my very artsitic daughter at the best art college in the province. When she becomes rich and famous she can support my flyfishing habit in the manner to which I'd like to become accustomed. Seriously, she absolutely loved it and has decided to pursue art instead of vet school.

2007 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Crew!!!! :thumb:



Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into Springs

well... not quite, but, I'll gladly take one of those Tacomas as well.

Mines a Smith Brothers Pram, just a work of art and alot of history behind the legendary boat. I hope to hand it down to my firstborn son who was born in January of 2010, looking forward to some Chironomid fishing with him someday. The pram was the best thing I bought, my son was the best thing we received.
