NOTE – I am looking for a ride on a boat, or I will be banking (bank fishing) this one. You’ll remember that I swore off competitive kayak fly tournaments after my debacle in Port Aransas, Texas – at the Lydia Ann. When I say “debacle,” I mean capital D bacle. Maybe we can ride this one out next year?
We really should spend more quality time at Lake Fork, Texas, but these gas prices have me seeing all kinds of red.
