I just wanted to say a quick hello as the new co-moderator of the Propwash section. I would not consider myself to be a seasoned boater with only one season under my belt so the idea here is not that I will be a question and answer guy but more a fellow fly guy who is learning the ways of the seas. I certainly found this season that getting on the water and actually catching some fish requires a steep learning curve. My hope is that we can share our experiences and learning’s and maybe bring a few more to the boat. If you want to know what the top end of a Contender is with trip 300 Verados on the back there is probably a better place for that. If you want to discuss ways of anchoring up on a flat to intercept cruising bass or sneaking up within fly casting range of some finicky tunoids I would love to have those discussions. I also anticipate that this will continue to be a great place to get some technical feedback or discuss what makes a boat a good fly fishing platform.
Here’s to a great season in ’06.
