Merry Christmas From Gink and Gasoline!

It’s hard to believe that 2014 is is almost in the net. It’s been a remarkable year for us. Full of challenges and successes. Who knew how many good people would rally around a fly fishing site started by two boys from Georgia? No one is more shocked, more thankful and more humbled by the support we have received than I am. I’d like to personally thanks each and every one of you. You are amazing.

Now that I’ve come clean on how much I have to be thankful for this Christmas, I’m going ask for more! I have three things on my Christmas list and I’m counting on each of you to deliver.

Louis’s Christmas list for 2014

1) Call up a friend who help you learn to fly fish and say thanks. It’s a word that no one hears too often. Even better, say thanks and make a date to go fishing. Especially if you haven’t in a while.

2) Find someone who wants to learn and take them fishing. It’s a gift that they will never forget and it will do you a whole lot of good too.

3) Challenge yourself, not others. See if you can make it through the next year without calling someone else’s idea of fly fishing, “bullshit.” Open your mind and realize that you can learn something from anyone, even a beginner. Let’s make fly fishing inclusive, not exclusive.

There it is. My Christmas list. You’ve given me so much and I’m asking for more. Give it a try and see if every day you go fishing doesn’t feel a little more like Christmas. God bless us, every one.

Merry Christmas!

    • Can someone tell me why I approve this shit??? I’m thinking of inviting a handful of these guys each year to a bar in WY for a good old fashion “Every Which Way. Buy Loose” ass beating.

      Seriously readers, tell me what you think. I try to keep this an open forum, but am I creating any value at all by encouraging this?
