Bottom line...

You know,

The more I kayak fish (with the fly) the more I find that I really only dislike one aspect of SWFF from the yak: stripping the fly

I find 2 main issues with the strip:
1. I cannot make long strips based on the allowed travel of my arm and the kayak cockpit in my SINK.

2. I always whack my hand into said cockpit.

For anyone evaluating a kayak for SWFF I would consider how you will handle the need for the good long, shock and stop strip needed in some SWFF environs.

My $0.02.

Mike
