Some of you guys fly fish, right? I need a gift idea

    I gotta get something for my brother-in-law, a fly-fishing fanatic. My wife on a scale of 1-10 - as in 10 is threatening his marriage - he's a 7.

    I looked at Cabela's website but was overwhelmed. Too much stuff and I don't understand a thing about fly fishing.

    Surely somebody's got some advice. I'm lost.

    Make some calls around the town where he lives and see if anybody offers fly tying lessons (those rawk). Otherwise, I'd get him a gift card to Cabella's.

    First, go Orvis not Cabela's.

    Start here ... http://www.orvis.com/store/product_directory_tnail.asp?dir_id=1686&Group_ID=14484&cat_id=14488&subcat_id=14496

    If nothing else, you can never have too many fly boxes ... http://www.orvis.com/store/product_directory_showcase3.asp?dir%5Fid=758&group%5Fid=792&cat%5Fid=5135&subcat%5Fid=6030
