Mick,

Do you make lures?...Are they any good? lol

But in all seriousness, your flies are the same quality as your lures. 11/10!

Top work fella.

I dont know about anyone else...but the hardest thing for me to get used was actually sitting down while casting. Having been in the boat when using the flyrod in the past, its amazing how different it is when sitting down.

You've summed it up in one sentence . . . high backcast is the trick. No sloppy lazy casting from the kayak/canoe. Another thing is to keep your flyline from tangling on stuff in the canoe and practice. Using a shorter fly rod helps too. I prefer an 8-8 1/2 ft rod and a quality reel with a proper drag so you can fight from the reel. The reality is you are not looking to do massive casts from a kayak/canoe so there shouldn't be fly line lying around everywhere anyway.
