Trout are still in season.
Sounds like a wonderful assortment for a fly guy. Good luck with their use.

I got a new hard case for my fly rod. I also got some gift cards for Cabela's. I see a new 8 wt. for Ny and Erie in my near future.

Re: what did everyone get for christmas

Got a new Scott S4 9' 5 wt, a bunch of Simms stuff and some money for my new Simms G4 Pro waders. It was a good Christmas for sure!

I'm 18 and I love the outdoors.

Thingamabobber tip!

Use a round tooth pick to peg it in place, I peg mine from the fly side towards the rod tip. That way it doesn't pull out from casting. By pegging, it won't kink the line or slip like the way you would normally would use them. I hate using them when you wrap the line around them, it kinks the leader bad. This way, if you switch to dries the leader will not be kinked too bad to hinder the dry fly.
