    Like an old Hardy Heavyweight?

    I remember McNeese showed me one of those things years ago. It was a like a 17 footer and weighed about 17 lbs .... perfect for side planing at 10000 cfs + ,,,maybe 12000, like above though, hold on tight, one of those 700lb tuna may be lurking

    WW , what type of line do you recomend(skagit, scandi, longbelly) I'm guessing by your mode of dress this will be a summer time demo on youngs bar perhaps? I'm betting between you , kerrys & I we could put on a speyclave nobody would forget.

    We will need to get mumbles down there with his boat and the new "pole" to really add a taste of class to this thing.

    Check with my friend Freestone. Freestone provided the link to the proper bracket. I'm thinking one of my current Line X covered load bearing cataraft decks would take that vertical pole mount well and one of the angler seats could be removed to make a little space...or left in place so there is little space between the vertical pole user and the seat occupant. I guess if I'm rowing this should be set up on the front deck, not the rear deck. Come to think of it, that vertical pole bracket could be put right where my feet rest on the footbar, there is a bit of that load bearing deck to mount the bracket. Then the front angler can stay focused on the fishing, the dancing can happen right in front of me and all would be well in the world.

    What a thread! It has gone from a 2 handed side planer seminar to chastizement for being childish to big assed bamboo rods, to boats equipped with stripper poles, stripper included. Gawd, I love fly fishing with a 2 handed rod.

    Hey, I could actually give a demo on this. I've done it. Used side planners for years. Love small crawfish style plugs during summertime. Realized I had forgot my gear rod, but had my 7wt with floating line. Put a longer leader on, strung the side planner, and ran the plug. Worked like a charm. Now, did I catch anything? Nope. But did make it work. :)
