Diablo Paddlesport Kayak

Kayak is complete for the must part, and ready to hit the water.  One more week of work, and I have a week of vacation to catch my first fish in it.

Getting Ready for the Smallmouth


I've been looking around at Tenkara rods for some time now.  I had looked at them pretty hard before we went to Colorado last year.  I like that they pack down in such a small footprint.  One small rod tube, some tippet, and a small fly box and you're set.  I purchased the Tenkara Series rod from Wetfly.  The thing I liked the most was you got a nice rod tube with this kit.  None of the other I saw came with one.  The kit contained the rod, tube, rod sock, level line, tippet, and a furled leader.  I'll chuck the level line, and tippet, and replace with RIO.  I did make up short floating section out of some older 4wt fly line.  I also purchased two hook keepers from Cabelas.  These are great for wrapping your line around when traveling up and down the stream.  The piece I made up with twelve foot long.  Should be a lot of fun, and something different to try.  There are some good video's on Youtube.
