Today was pretty darn perfect. I met my fishing partner, JC, at my house around 8 am. We loaded up his boat in my truck and then my new pontoon on top of his boat. Loaded up the other stuff, invited him in the house for a warm cup of Joe, showed him my fly tying area, and we headed out. Took the quick ferry over and got to the lake at 9 am. Took me a little while to get the new pontoon togother. Hooking up the seat and saddle bags took me a little while. But I got the boat together and I was finally on the water. I caught one nice fish on my sinking line and some hits too. The trout has some fight in him. I decided to switch lines. The type 6 is toooo much for me to handle. So I switched out. Anyone watching me would have laughed their ass off becuase I switched out while I was still on the pontoon. I had to take the rod apart and thread the line through each section. Lol. It was fuuunnnyy. The day was just perfect. JC and I went in and met up with Mary and Mumbles. It was great to see both of them. Mary took my new pontoon out for a spin and we shared hot coffee and snacks. JC and I went back out and stayed out until dark. Loading up the boats and stuff in the dark is somewhat tricky. Need a light! It was a great day. I learned a lot but now I would like to learn more about my fly line, how to work the bank without getting hung up and still need to figute out the seat thang. Here are two pictures. First one is of my new pontoon and the next is of my trout.
