CoolThat doesn't make you a bad person. But you got that covered pretty well in other areas.

You need to add some inflation to your arsenal.

Do you really know me that well?
Actually have a couple inflatables - a kiddy boat (they call it a 3 man - I don't know WHO they're kidding! And a "kayak" - more like a canoe with a Kayak paddle - sadly one pup decided it'd make a good chew toy. The big patch holds - for a while... but it was fun getting on top of fish. I was amazed at what I could see from "above" at 1st-2nd-3rd dams in Logan river!

But now I've collected way to many rods and lures to fit them littel tugs...speaking of collecting - don't see you've changed your Avatar yet. Are you still swapping toons, or have ya moved onto the new ride yet?

Actually yes, but don't think I'm as thick skinned as "The Dude" - probably prefer to wait for warmer weathers to return. But all that "Fin-Esse-ing" does appeal (pun intended). Had been tempted by some back-pack styles - for the sheer access opportunities.
Next thing I know - you'll be asking me to fling a fairy wand! Though I'll confess - I did just pick up a Fly-Tying kit "Jackson Cardinal" - I'm sure I could benefit from parts upgrades. But alas, new toyz to tinker with!

TIA - maybe a raincheck for now, or call that an ice-check!

Depending on which one you try you might not even get wet. I only get wet on my avenger when I purposely go through wakes. Plus gas motor on a pontoon is always a win





Have you read my Blog? I hear it's getting better!

CoolI have put up several posts on this matter...first, reselling the toon and then reporting on being back in the Fat Cat. You gotta pay 'tention.

Loved the Renegade but it was not suitable for my way of using it...like a float tube. Took more of my declining energy to push it around all day and whupped my old butt. I did not use the oars...as it is intended...so no advantage there. And the motor was hard to steer without using my fins so no real advantage there over the tube.

The Renny already has a new home.
