My iPad even kept trying to correct my spelling just trying to type those 3 words in!!

As for me...new Federal turkey shells, a jake decoy,  and camo netting.

"Bivy & bed"  ...looks like you got kicked out of the house  !  ....Quite a stash there Tyler !

 

I also bought some carp "ammo" during the lock down .  I splurged my income tax refund and bought FOUR cans of corn at Walmart for my carp capades  ....94 cents per can ...rip off !!  But I told my wife , it's worth it !!

Trolling motor, battery, charger, rod holder, and I crafted a kayak dashboard to mount my finder and motor to, complete with measurements for all those fish that come aboard.  Ha. 
 

Also picked up a Penn Pursuit when it was on sale last week which I would use as a cheap saltwater travel reel (if they open the damn borders), because I don’t like using my Daiwa BG in the salt even though it could probably handle it.   
 

...oh and found some clearance Spiderwire Ultracast flurobraid which I grabbed in 10 and 15lb.  Sinks better than normal braid. 


So, not much really.

Beer, beer and more beer.  Oh, also picked up a larger frabill fishing net, for those toothie critters, will also accommodate carp.   While out picking up the net I also got some more beer.

Sorry a typo ,Landing mat: a mat to lay the fish on while taking the hook out/pictures. 
bivy-tent

spomb: holds bait, cast it out and it opens on impact.  Used to bait an area.

Gardening stuff.

I can't order fishing gear without seeing in person. Unless its something I've already owned before, then I can order no problem.

I wish we had carp stores like the U.K.  I’d like to see what I buy first but that’s not always an option.

There are a lot of carp in Ontario ....don't know how far north they are now . I caught one in the Burnt river near Minden   back in the 60's .  Carp fishing seems to be catching one more each year so I expect to see more carp tackle as demand grows . I bought all my gear  , rod, reel , sling shot , alarm , scents , rigs, etc. locally .

  Tyler ...my bivy  is a beach umbrella ....(cheap)   :)

What do you do with a bivy? Sit inside and drink bevi? LOL. 

I bought a New 5" Canada fishing reels ( Umbra ) that I will receive this summer off the waiting list. I bought a Hardy salmon 2, spey reel, and a bunch more fly tying materials,  and I bought a Low Kilometer 2016 Toyota Tundra, ohhh and I bought my wife some ice cream.😝
