There were almost no "Christmas" cards but there were plenty of "Happy Holiday" cards. What a very sad state of affairs. The birth of Jesus is really not celebrated much in our country anymore, whereas only 30 years ago it was the primary focus for the December holiday. And when was the last time those from the left press or even some of our most powerful politicians attended church?
Back to the point at hand. Thought you might like to see this for it is festive. This is an email ad I received just this morning:

I frequent the one near me in Idaho all of the time. But I can tell you. If you act today, you can still get some really neat stuff for your Idaho fly fishing sweetie (whether from Idaho or not) before online shopping ends.

My last post mentioned one of my personal favorites--the autobiography Fly Fishing Through the Midlife Crisis by Howell Raines. But simply go to my "QuickView Blog Post Retrieval" to find many more gift ideas. It doesn't matter whether you are looking to make something very inexpensive for him/her like a Poor Man's Lanyard (parents and friends love homemade stuff) or simply give them a jar of Albolene, which you can find at any drug store, for fly floatation.

Another wonderful gift for the avid Idaho fly fisher is Longer Fly Casting by Lefty Kreh which is reviewed in my post "A Perfect Gift". The post about "Big Y Flies" has great ideas regarding necessary flies and a great, new technology fly rod for your fly fisher. Try one of my personal favorites, a "Furled Leader" by Jaime which are handmade in southern Idaho. Slightly more expensive, but well worth it, is the "Personal Pontoon Boat". And the ultimate is the 2-3 person inflatable fly fishing rafts at "KVI Rafts".

Now your other option is to provide a trip to one of our many very famous wade fishing rivers like the St. Joe, the Moyie, the Thompson, or even portions of the Kootenai or the Clark Fork. Anyway visit our "QuickView Blog Post Retrieval", go to "Fly Fishing Gifts (NEW)" and read your heart out. But hurry, Christmas is almost here.

Have a happy and merry Christmas. Hard takes, tight lines, sore arms, screaming reels and bent 4-5 weight fly rods forever and particularly into your New Year. Make 2016 your Idaho fly fishing year.
