*Fly Fishing Tackle

     Reels – Orvis Vortex (Discontinued)

     Rods – Orvis T-3 (Discontinued)

                  (There should be some deep dark personality quirk in that, but I just can’t figure out what it is.)

                  Redington “Predator”

     Lines – Orvis “Bass” (For freshwater), “Redfish” and “Clear-tip” (For saltwater)

*Conventional Fishing Tackle

     Reels – Shimano “Calcutta”

     Rods – Not too particular, but shorter and a bit stiffer than most folks like.

     Lines – Mostly Stren 8/30 braid

*Hunting Stuff

     (Too many changes recently to have favorites. Will evaluate.)

*Punch “Bolos” cigars, Gentleman Jack sour mash, Yellowtail Shiraz, and trucks with V-6 engines and manual transmissions.

And Barbara.
