I took the plunge...

Postby wgmiller » Sat May 22, 2010 12:53 pm

Picked up my new yak the other day and am in the process of getting it rigged up for fishing. Future Beach "144 Angler" (12') that I found on sale at Dunham's Sports. Last year I waded OI/Prop Slough; this year, I'm going mobile. :) The spin rod holder is just sitting there BTW. Now the rigging fun begins!

Awesome! The time and money spent rigging your yak will be one of the best investments you'll ever make. I had a blast this winter gettin my new one rigged up and some of the modifications ive made have surely made a difference this spring.


Have fun!

As if fly fishing isn't addictive enough, now I have this new arena to suck me in! :lol: Really looking forward to being adrift by myself, fly rod in tow in search of fish...

Its always in "development" Stage.
Get with your local Milk Man, to get a box for the back, He might give you one for free!. They are more heavy duty thicker plastic than you can buy in the store.
Also I highly reccomend the anchor pully system, We installed it on Brad's and I envy it.
Other than that with options are endless.
BCflyfisher and myself are now always looking for a place to yak and fish instead of wade. (way more possiblities)
Good luck happy fishing.
