    I have a 2009 Ocean Kayaks Prowler Big Game. Its been a great vessel, and I've been extremely happy with it!
    I agree, the ocean is my favorite place too

    It is great Will. I mostly catch bluegill, but it is like eating cracker jacks when you throw that fly you never know what the prize will be. Large mouth bass like flies too:D One of my friends told me that his dad told him years ago "there is more to fishing than just catching fish" and I have learned what he is talking about. Catching fish is just an added bonus, to a great day on the water. Just like the cracker jacks, if you only focus on the prize you miss out on all the good stuff getting there:D

    Great philosophy brother, I really like that!
    I've done a great deal of 'soul-searching' over the years, while staring at the water going quietly past.
    Hey, I love catching bluegill! They are a blast on light rods, although I've never caught one on a fly rod. I have, however, caught some nice largemouth over 4 lbs on flies, and that is a great battle!!
    If crappie exist in your neck of the woods, that is a real blast on flies!!

    We have those around here too. Usually catch the bluegill on small poppers and small foam spiders are the best. I get what you are talking about on the soul searching, I done a lot of that myself just paddling and listening to the birds sing. I will be glad when this global warming stops dumping all of this snow and cold weather, so I can get out the kayak :D

    I went out and tried to fish in my little 8 footer and it was no fun at all. I will stick to the 16 foot canoe, that way my lab can enjoy the day fishing too.

    nice place to spend a day fishing.

    this year I could not even spend a day at sea, because the weather has been quite adverse.
    the only water that has caught my hull is the rain.
