Warm weather,sunny and no wind but felt so happy and relaxed anyway,had no "must have a fish" feeling at all,to test my new battleship was my main target.
Only thing I made before this trip was an anchor trolley rig,decided to test before any mounting of camera rig or rod holders.
So out on sea and do some testing while fishing.
Had made some plans were to fish but stopped on two places before my first real spot and managed to test the anchor trolley at same time.
Notice: fly casting is easier from this ship then from my Commander,also like that I 'm able to have a fly box under the seat.No fishes....
Not sure was I unaccustomed or what but this ship felt a bit slower than Commander,might be so,Ride is 6 cm: s wider.
Anyway,when I arrived to days first real spot I noticed that I need to find a solution where to put the paddle for longer stops.
Anchor rig also need some adjustments.
Fishing:We had some light breeze now so fishing looked a bit better,parked my kayak on a shallow area close to bit deeper area so i could fish both shallow and deep.Had a good feeling about this place.
Not many casts before I felt a hit on my fly,first a very light and smooth one but when I got the fish closer to the kayak and up at the shallow area the fight was on.
Now I knew that this was not a jack,definitely a better one,need my landing net here,I can tell you that unfold your landing net and fighting a big fish at same time is not that funny I wanna do it again.
after some hustle I managed to land a beautiful ma'm,she had suffered enough of my hazing so even if the photo is shit it will have to do.
Notice: Need to find a rational place for my Landing net.Got some ideas already...
Nice start anyway.lifted the anchor and let my kayak drift a bit further and continued the fishing and not long before once again a heavy hit disturbed my thoughts,this time there was no hustle with landing but photo taking is something that also need to be solved.
