Thought I’d send a report. I haven’t had too much luck this year getting out for the flood fishing but managed a trip yesterday.
The wind was blowing pretty good but I managed to find one area that was protected well enough to cast. Fortunately there were a few fish tailing in that spot. I finally convinced one of them to take my fly and had a nice battle landing him. That was pretty much it for the day, the wind was howling so I started my trudge back against the wind and ran in to this little guy clinging to a blade of grass and it seemed stranded and exhausted. With a little convincing, I got him into the kayak for a ride to shore and put him in a protected cedar tree to rest up. He was gone when I checked on him later so hopefully he made it.
I picked up a used Yamaha 2 hp last week, I’m trying to re-invent the wheel for a motor mount and will send some pictures along when I’m done.
