Holiday Fishing Report

Merry Christmas and Happy Angling.
For those of you that don't yet have a gift for your favorite fisherman, I hope the following web sites will help.
First go to protecproducts.com and there you'll find boat care products. Check the red bag full of everything for cleaning and polishing boats, autos, RV's and more. Just put in your zip code for the nearest dealer.
Next click on, mccoyfishingline.com for absolutely the best fishing line I've ever used. Click on the dealer box and then Texas and you'll see all the bait and tackle stores in East Texas.
Finally, if your angler subscribes to Bassmaster Magazine, the current issue features the 2006 tackle guide with all the new lures, reels, rods, line and tackle .
So get your angler something he or she will use on the water. I hope that helps your last minute shopping.
