Got a Maver rod from the missus, I liked the ones that were in the recent competitions so much that Teresa bought me one
Got some money from the kids to buy the Neoprene waders that I kept going on about
And some money from the inlaws to buy some gear as well
Well fishing wise it was a couple of pairs of Thermal Socks  (they were in desperate need)
And a Galaxy Selection box for eating on the bank 
But the Best Pressie was to see my Nephew WALK into my mums on Christmas day, when only 5 weeks ago he was on life support with next to no hope of survival (that really made the families Christmas)
Fishing wise I got a Shimano Carp rod a new feeder arm for the octoplus legs bite alarm and swingger and a weigh sling, Danile had an octoplus main frame six shooter lure rod and reel and a load of lures and a carp reel
Rather glad I didnt get any fishing prezzies this year. Unfortunately, family have a habitat of buying 'useful' fishing gadgets from BHS & M&S at xmas. You know, those multi-purpose things with the fish descaler and screw driver(that doesnt fit any screws in my tackle box).I hint eversogently for the dosh these days.Unfortunately the wife was looking over my shoulder as I wrote this so I probably wont even get the dosh now.Still, socks always come in handy!!
I ordered myself a pair of neoprene boots from my local tackle shop in november ready for xmas. Guess what? I`m still waiting. I suppose they will make a nice easter pressie (fingers crossed).
ps Nice one Malc Best wishes to you and all your family.
