i think its against the rules
Some Audio Technica ATH-A700 headphones on the cheap.
Lagartun mini braid--stuff changed the way I tie flies, although if you've seen my flies you know how pathetic that is
Lab pup...of all the 'things' I bought, it's the only one that gives back.
Buying my son his first pair of waders which HE asked for. Nothing better than seing my boy out on the water.

Damn'it Alpine has me beat! Just went over 3k miles with my 2010 F-150 and so far I am very happy with it.
i would have to start with my cooper discoverer stt tires and pro comp 52 series wheels for my truck. then after that it would be my synthetic stocked remington 870 for my beat around gun, and after that i would have to say my fishing license and gas to get me to my spots. been one hell of a year!
A pair of simms waders with zipper,a skagit line for my old brown 9140 and a trip to the grande ronde.
Best: Lab pup, new house, T&T Vector, Cliff boxes, dozens of shuttles, Rem 870
Worst: PBR Light, SA fly boxes, Snowbee leaders.
Hmmm... Let's see...
A new house...
Diamonds for my sweetie...
Simms G3 waders...
Oh, yeah... And my 1st spey rod!!! Decho 7wt. And I have steel on it already. MOJO MOJO!
My 13 ft Scamp trailer, no more sleeping on the ground, and when it rains I can walk in instead of crawling into a tent.
VERY nice truck Brendan!
I'd have to say my favorite new item has been my new raft set up = Aire Super Puma with NRS frame
Here at the homestead it was probably our best year ever from a financial standpoint despite having been retired for over 10 years. And of course there has been a commensurate number of big ticket items that have somehow magically appeared. But there is one small item that pleases me every time I pick it up and it has some history to precede it. It is a Cyclops LED spotlight-something that I desperately needed. It replaces an older 2 million candle power light that had lead acid batteries. It weighed 3 pounds 13 ounces and was about the same diameter of a steam locomotive headlight. And it had a burn time of 3 to 4 minutes depending on which of the two batteries I had in it. I could barely get to the barn and back at night without this thing crapping out on me. I do an eyeball check every time I go out at night and although I usually see only deer in the yard I have also seen bear, coyote and cougar. Not a cast of characters I want to be out in the dark with.
The new light gives me some real confidence that I can crawl under the house if necessary or be out after dark without fear of a blackout. Burn time on spotlight is 3 hours and 40 hours when just using it as a flashlight. It is small, light at 1 pound 6 ounces and almost as powerful as the old monster was but vastly more dependable. This is the kind of product that I really appreciate-a huge step forward in performance and convenience without a big leap forward in price.
Was a great year to be an outdoors men!
my BEST purchases were these by far...
-CZ redhead deluxe 12g O/U
-Deer creek spey setup
-Echo Ion 10' 7wt (money in the bank right there. these rods are leeeeeegit.)
oh yeahhh and cliffs bugger box. the really really big one. these boxes are the only way!
Last but not least... my custom steelface net should be done anytime!
course it will prlly be a part of next years collection.
