Merry Christmas from Christmas Island

Chum contributor and photographer Tim Pask, dug up some photos that have 2 things in common.  All the photos were taken on Christmas Island over the Christmas Holidays, and each of them ended up being Photo Chum....


Sonya Pask being released by a Giant Trevally.  She barely made it out alive.


Angler Eddie Sadvar, with a Golden Trevally.  He later went on to star in all the GIECO "Even a caveman can do it" commercials.


This GT eventually ended up stealing the rod.  Hey Mr. Giant, if your seeing this I forgive you and you can keep the rod, but please return my Tibor.  I miss it.  Angler Eddie "Caveman" Sadvar.


Before Eddie got his GIECO roll, he spent time portraying Popeye the Sailor.  He never mastered the squinty eye thing, but the GT's were amused.


Photographer Tim Pask displaying a small GT.  Photo by Eddie Sadvar.  Note: Tim Pask now uses Allstate insurance.


So to all of us LOSERS who are not spending Christmas on Christmas, this L's for us!  Sonya Pask, and the world famous Simmon Corrie.

To BWTF, who inspired us to make this short in the first place, a new title, Leave it to Buster.


To Lee @ Fly Fish Magazine, a reprint of a Ringo Starr autographed photo.  Those of you who frequent Lee's site will get it.

To This is Fly, who rule when it comes to abstract fish art, a Picasso rendition of a woman with a fish on her head.


To our dear friend and colleague Straq @ Way Upstream, some Cloudveil wading pants....inside joke. They are on sale everywhere by the way.

T'was the Night Before Caddis


A Chum holiday post tradition.

Twas the night before Christmas when down by the stream
The full moon looked out on a chill winter scene.
A lone trout was sipping a midge in his brook,
Untroubled by worries of fishers with hooks.

Then from above a small sleigh did appear
Pulled by a brace of eight tiny reindeer.
It swerved of a sudden and down it did glide,
Settling its runners along the streamside.

The fat, jolly driver dove into his sled
And emerged with his three weight held high over head.
"Thank you my elves for this wand smooth as silk.
This break will be better than cookies and milk."

Thanksgiving Cocktail Revisited


Fill a tall glass with ice cubes. Add 2 ounces of Wild Turkey and 1 ounce of Cranberry Juice. Then fill the glass with the Drinking Gravy. Stir gently to mix the ingredients. Add a dollop of mashed potatoes, and garnish with a turkey bone.

(Via The J-Walk Blog)

Then again you could always drink the gravy straight up.
