Hi all... <!--graemlin::)-->I normally don't buy gifts at Christmas for friends and family... <!--graemlin::eek:--> as it's TRULY difficult...and I prefer a phone call and the personal interaction better than the "wrong gift" scenario <!--graemlin::rolleyes:-->But I DO treat myself to something at Christmas... <!--graemlin::o-->Cabelas had sent me a Christmas catalog with a $25 off coupon good towards a $200 orderSo here are the MAIN things I got...1st...an Ambassador 6600CB...one of only 2 6000 Series Ambassadors with a "Thumbar"...Cast muskie lures ALL DAY long and tell me this isn't a GOOD thing to have <!--graemlin::eek:--> Then I got an Abu 1276 Spincast reel...pre-loaded with 14 lb Fireline...I've read reviews of this reel where it was said that you would NOT believe how FAR you can cast with this setup...well...ME is going to find out <!--graemlin::D--> The last MAJOR item I got was a replica "smallmouth bass"...I have several different "fake" fishes...carved...ceramic...glass-blown...and this just seemed to fit inmy thought of having a glass topped coffee table or a "fake" aquarium with these "fish" in there... So what did YOU get yourself???
