Made this up. Have not tried it out on Mitzi but did cast in driveway. May need some smoothing out of base of tie wraps. I got about $25 in it. Got the idea from seeing Steve Soule similar pad from Carbon Marine ($100).
I fished a half day with Scott Null on Monday 8-27-12. I hooked 6 and landed four. I had two knots untie with fish on. From which I have caught some ribbing from cetain members and the guide. Please be on notice that you will not be fishing with me again. We site casted to redfish in marsh with terns showing location of feeding reds. Used redfish crack fly. There is one picture posted the www.texaskayakfisherman.com in the fishing reports section. Most action I have had in a long time.
I have volunteered to have a knot tying table at mini expo in August. I am not an expert in knots and will learn more than I know now. Asking for ideas from people who have presented before. Also would like for members to show me what knots they are using so I can pass them on.
I am thinking about having fly tying vises with hooks to practice on as well as large cords (1/4 inch) to visually see knots. I have the "Little Redbook of Knots" and a few others.
First trip to Port Mansfield. Was a bait casting trip with Captn Trisha from Skinny Water Adventures. I asked her about places to sight cast for redfish. I want to go back. We fished Friday and Saturday. I got two 24" trout on topwater on Friday and a 26" on Saturday. Got some reds on top also. She is a grinder. We waded only both days. Of course she outfished us.
Hey Adam, did you look at the lease papers? Call me
