It’s that time of year again. Families are busy decorating their homes with Christmas, Hanukkah and Festivus garb, in preparation for the big day or days. Retailers are busy counting their earnings from Black Friday in hopes of hitting the black.

And fly fishing addicts like us are gearing up for winter steelhead.

Needless to say, it’s my favorite time of year.
