More New Years Eve Tutorials and Ideas 
coming up this week!


  1. Having been a commercial diver and fished in some strange
    places for some equally curious fish, my skepticism
    of the Loch Ness Monster would have alienated me from some interesting characters,
    who were going to be my customers for the next two months.
    However, there are various kinds of salmon and hardly any of them
    are more strong and bouncy than others. Investigation everything concerning your angling journey upfront.

  19. Lots of fab ideas here this morning Jen! I am not sure why, but New Years has never been a big deal for me. I think that's because with five kids I never got into the habit of going out on NY eve. (babysitters were far too expensive) and then I am a person that's always too tired to stay up until midnight! Iknow, I'm just an old fuddie duddie! Nevermind, I love you and wish you and your family the best New Year ever! xxoo
