    Thanks for the offer Stewart, floating with someone else would be pretty cool. I'm more of a visual learner. Too bad we just got all that rain last week, I was going to try to sneak up the NF of the CDA but looking at the flows now its way too fast.

    Thanks Jesse that would be great. I have been meaning to stop by for a while now. I honestly never knew about your flyshop until I joined this site. Funny thing is that I live just north of your shop on Indiana. I was also thinking of checking out some switch rods for steelhead too. And speaking of, do you offer spey casting lessons?

    Very good to know, kinda sucks though. Looked like a fun float, but maybe I can borrow a canoe

    Kayaks are on there often as well. Bottom line is feet have to be enclosed.

    Have you thought about the Scadden boats? I have been looking for about a year now and after trying a bunch IMO they are much better and more versatile than traditional pontoon boats.

    A few years ago when I was attending a outdoor sports show I heard of them and was given a DVD on thier products. I have been drooling over one of those since but just cant afford one! They are an awesome personal watercraft though.

    I have TU Madison with and it has the 8' pontoons. I am 6'3 220lbs and it works great for me. I have put it on my back inflated and packed in to some alpine lakes through windfalls and blackberrys without any problems, it is a really sturdy boat. Its not too heavy but it can be a bit cumbersome at times. I have been looking at the Alpacka Rafts and they seem to be a pretty sweet set-up if you are going to be in the wind or on faster moving water. I also really like the idea of only having to pack about 5lbs.

    Hope you find a good one.
