I spent about 9 hrs total on the Yak, as they call it. 3 on the bank and rocks and the rest on a 16ft HYDE glass. WOW. My first time in the real stuff and boy am I hooked on it bad now. My wife is already lookin for a 12 step program for fly fishermen. Im learning the hatch and types of fly set-ups and cant wait for my next opening.
