    Default Christmas Dreams

    It was Christmas Eve and as I slid into bed
    With visions of jumping rainbow in my head
    I tried to fall asleep but I just turn and toss
    Thinking of that new reel made by Ross
    My mind moves far west to Rock Creek
    Where it is big browns my dry flies seek
    My casting loops are long and very tight
    The new Winston BIIIx fits my cast just right
    Then suddenly Sockeye salmon is what I see
    In a clear stream of Alaska right in front of me
    The gift from my wife, most cherished of the day
    An all expensed paid fishing trip to Bristol Bay
    And swinging the fly I felt a strong sudden tug
    It must be a thirty pound salmon hitting my bug
    Then, just as sudden as that tug on my fly line
    I heard a loud voice that ended my joyful recline
    Don, get out of bed and take out your dog
    I climbed out of bed still in a slight state of fog
    Put on my slippers and moved to the door
    Knowing my night was over, sleeping no more
    I went out in the cold, the sharp wind in my face
    Trying to understand how I got back to this place
    As I came back in I looked at the Christmas tree
    It seemed lonely and empty not one present to see
    It was only a dream I realized rubbing my hair
    No, I got none of that stuff, not a dream – a Christmas Nightmare

    May all your Christmas dreams come true

    Default Christmas Cheer

    Flyman,

    Same to you and your family. One questions though, how does one become a Master Fly Tier and only tie 3-4 flies. I think you were being a little modest there. Have a great day!

    Default Fun?

    nvr2L8,

    Yes, it would be sad if true. I think I am getting at least one of those things for Christmas. The truth is that I can't image a man more blessed than I have been in life. I could list all my blessing here, but you would get bored. I will say that it truly has been a blessing for me to get to know the folks at LRO and on this board. There just can't be any better prople in the world.

    So, I say thanks to you all, and may you have a merry Christmas and remember what a blessing it truly is.
