Corey is a beginner fly fisher and a Kayak Virgin.   My wife is lending him her Revolution 11 and I am taking him to Rancho Seco in the early morning.  Nice safe spot for his first outing.  Probably fish the coves for Bluegill.  Supposed to be 80 with a light breeze. We should have a blast.   Many photos to follow :smt006

I have this feeling that if its like any other activity he gets in to he will soon be buying his own yak :smt005  His wife is going to kill me for that.

Beat, Spent 5 hours on the water, caught one small blugill. Breezy conditions but my new fly combo was awesome, very balanced, it made for accurate and effortless casting. We got buzzed by a flock of Mute Swans, another of Canada Geese, couple of snowy egrets, a great blue heron and two red shouldered hawks.

Cory was using my wifes Hobie kayak and a bushing on the pedal drive broke. It would have sucked paddling into the wind chop but I carry a tow rope and pulled him through the worst of it and into a quiet finger of the lake for more fishing. Hit Bass Pro Shops on the way home then the Kayak shop in Livermore where they installed a new 4 dollar part and fixed the drive. Finished the day at Dimitris having Lamb Giros

You didn't need an excuse to go to bass pro, but you were fixing the wife's kayak right. 

Did Corey have fun.  Is he hooked?

Bass Pro was another new fly reel for me (plus some flies), Cory bought shotgun shells and some new flies.

Another one hooked.  I need to get back out and fly fish.  Sort of put it on hold when I started ocean fishing and diving.

I guess I should buy 2 extra parts. I always try to have the top 8 parts that break on hand not to ruin a trip. Some times it could be hours to a dealer and some dealers don't carry many parts. Maybe we should try to keep that list of suggested parts here some place. I carry extra rudder pins in each hatch.
