Very nice! The boat and the truck!

How do you like fly fishing from the kayak? I'm constatnly back and forth over a kayak or a packable pontoon. With the kayak I could paddle to so many palces to fish but with the pontoon I could pack into so many more palces that I couldn't get the kayak to. What are your like/dislikes about kayak fishing?

I am just starting with the kayak, but so far it is a BLAST! This is the first fish ever from a kayak, and let me tell you, this thing towed me around for a while and I don't think I've ever had so much fun with a fish on the line. Very exciting. You definitely need to think about line management and casting style from the kayak, but I really enjoy it.

Looks like a great time! Almost looks like it should be a factory option, lol.

I've been looking at kayaks for a month or so and haven't found one yet. What brand is that?

That's a Wilderness Systems Ride 135. I just got it and am new at kayaking, but it is really stable and very comfortable. I don't know where you are but there's a place in Virginia that has about 2,300 canoes and kayaks in stock. If you can't find one you like there, you aren't looking!

Holy crap dude!! Nice fish on a yak. I have a Tarpon 160 also that a friend gave to me.

Do you have a better picture of how you're hauling both kayaks? I want to carry both as soon as this weekend but just have the crossbars at this point. I can't figure out from your picture exactly how you're doing that.

I have an RV Inno in 406 kayak cradle. Pain in the arse to load by yourself.



A friend of mine uses a Thule 830 kayak stacker and I think it's better than the Inno. Yakima also makes one, but I have'nt seen it in person.

nice! Lowrider works well. If you think it's a bit of a pain, try the Hully Rollers (I have them and they make it easy to roll it on), or even the Hullivator!
