Sorry Art, I do now recall that it was a boat, not a yak - I saw a killer inflatable yak article in this month's Audubon Mag and it rekindled my interest in such a toy. I see how much more stable the boat would be and the option of a motor sure makes it interesting too.
I've been tempted to make a trout trip (Nathan sounds like he's up for one) but will start to hit the cape ponds in March most likely. I have a mystery to solve for Mike Powers, international man of mystery. If all goes well I will hop out to the Olympic Peninsula to escort Ryan... I am no bodyguard but maybe I could deploy a diversionary tactic
There are a couple of nice rivers near my home - Nissitissit and Squancook. I've done well when I fished them, but frankly I haven't fished them much. I hear there are some good rivers in Rhody... is it true? Searuns in CT too?
