Hey all, signed up with this site just a while ago after Googling "Scadden", lotsa threads on here regarding his products, this is my first post here (someone's using my regular handle so I had to go with this one) I've been fly fishing quite a while up here in BC, mostly lake fishing with the odd steelhead trip every couple years, hope to do more of both when we retire in 2 or 3 years. We tow a 27 ft trailer and I have a 1436 Princecraft jon boat for fishing the lakes we go to up here in the interior. On our last trip my bud we went with had pontoon boats he took to some back lakes for him and his wife, that got me thinking of pontoons, (way easier than taking apart the boat with the anchors, seats, floor boards, outboards, fish finder etc etc) and after talking to a club member that had an Assault I decided that was the way to go, no frame and/or little parts to pack and possibly lose, everything fits into 1 bag. We already pack a ton-o-crap for our trips so the less extra the better. I just ordered a Renegade, decided to go for that instead of the Assault I was going to get since it'll be used for back lakes, figured the open bow was easier to get in and out of, will be able to keep my rod tip in the water etc. I've learned a lot reading the threads on here, will be ordering the NRS stripping apron and want to order some glue on D-rings from them at the same time, what should I get, the 1" or 2" size and what's the best glue to use with the Scadden's? They're a good idea for the stipping apron or not really needed? I'm getting the strap on bow anchor for now but will glue on a Scotty mount once I'm sure where I want it. I make lead pyramid anchors, they okay for the Renegades, 8 pounds or so or is there something that works better? I'm hoping to get by without a rod holder (don't have them in my boat) but where do you carry your spare rods? I take 4 with me in the boat, guess I might have to cut back in that area? Any other tips you can offer? Thanks in advance.
