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.
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.

AK Powder Monkey - you are a cheap date.:rofl:
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.

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.
AK Powder Monkey easily wins this threads Lowest Common Denominator award. But his picture did remind me of Alaska's favorite new drink. It is 2 parts cheap beer, 1 part rot gut whiskey and a dash of bitters served on the rocks in a dirty glass. Depending on the part of the state you are in it is called either the Sarah Palin or the Haf Guvner. Bottoms up!
My favorite thing is my Sage XI3 8 weight rod. I have caught several large trout with it using articulated streamers.
But then I also like my Dyna King barracuda junior vise, all the strength of the barracuda vice and 2/3 the weight.
Well sung Julie Andrews. Congrats on the beautiful boat, but you, like a few others, really scored big with the newest additions to your families!
Oh, I did get a set of Bose QC 15 headphones for my overseas travels. They make flying MUCH nicer.
I think her name was Tiffany but I could be wrong.......
now that gave me a good laugh! I almost forgot the best thing I got (but didn't buy) was a new granddaughter (to go with the two 5 yo grandsons)-she is wonderful! Rick
Ha, that girl gave me the clap. You need to go to the doctor. I think it was the chap price that closed the deal for me, she smelled pretty.
I don't go for the cheap ones. What nationality was she?
I think an English gal, just the light skin, light hair, accent, the bottle of Gin and she told me her old man worked at the Hardy Factory. Or maybe she said hardly worked?
Id have to say my S&w 629 classic .44 mag
