Poling techniques

This is a first posting in the new How-To category on the Texas FlyFishers website.  During the recent Redfish Rodeo 2016, there was some discussion about organizing some poling education during a popular saltwater outing or event.  That will take a bit of planning, but in the interim, a few folks shared some links that might be useful to those of you who are curious.

The first is a posting from the Saltwater Sportsman written by local guide Scott Sommerlatte called “Poling Basics

The second is a YouTube video by guide Capt Joe Gonzalez called  “Fundamentals of Poling a Skiff“.

This is the info I have at this time.  We do have a couple of boats with Captains pending on this outing.  I will try to contact and verify if they are coming.  Riders who have signed bot have not been placed on a boat yet will have first right by the date they signed up.  Please do not stick someone on your boat that has not signed up yet.  Would not be fair to those who signed up first!
