|The "Six-Mile" launch...two more miles and it'd be an Eminem movie.|
Anyway...despite a fairly consistent breeze that was pushing me around a little bit, it was a pretty nice day out on the water. I didn't really catch much, but I did learn some more things about handling my kayak, figuring out the most efficient layout for stuff in and on the boat, and just casting my 8-weight from a paddling/seated position.
Not to say that I was skunked...but I do probably need to get a pair of those grip thingies to deal with toothy critters...
|Hey, that's not a brown trout...first fish in the 'yak.|
Guess I can keep the blog's name Troutrageous! for the time being...
I also "caught" a crab, or maybe the crab caught my fly. Either way I flung it off the side rather than do a grip & grin. I like my fingers.
Windburned and sunburned, I had to call it quits after a few hours. I do have to say the few hours out on the water felt really good. I feel like it's been a while since I've said that about my fishing outings.
