I thought i would be bragging but after reading this I am a not even in the running. Tickets to NZ.
I cant say I bought him, but my son was a great gift
Other than that.....my time on the OP was a great gift to me...thanks Jergens
Upgrade to iPhone 4, Beulah spey rod, 46" Sony t.v., life's pretty good.
For years I have used Maxima tippet for all my steelheading because I found it to be the best material. But I hated the way the line always unwound on me, even with the clear plastic insert and rubber band. Then I found this little item and have loved them ever since.
The other item was a new toon...man I love that thing.
Shit I'm drunk. Already said that.
Best purchase this year despite having to sleep in it since bringing it home. Waiting for my wife to let me back in the house.... But totally worth it!!
Tuna are shaking in their fins!!

I bought a ring last winter that was by far my most important purchase of the year (of life for that matter), but fishing related:
Trip on the steelhead train (Eastern OR) for me and the boy. Caught his first steelhead with train in background. That was a trip, to be sure. Too bad looks like they won't be around this next year.

Force fins . . . no question
I bought some things this year but when I read Ive's post, I had a hard time coming up with them. For me, the best was a train ticket to Whitefish, MT for one last fishing trip with my way-too-young fishing buddy Steve who was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in late August. It looks like we won't get to do the steelhead trip I promised him so I hope my second best thing will be one more visit soon...
A 7'9" 6wt fiberglass rod from Steffen Brothers. It's a streamer-chucking machine for smaller streams and one of the very best rods of any configuration I've ever used.
