2.) A bucket, put their fish in it and let them observe the fish, this works wonders if they are squeemish. It also garners a Catch and Release mentality, ill ask "Do you want to Eat them?" and almost always get begged to let them go.
3.)Small spinning rods, lets face it kiddy push button rods are cool, but teach em how to use a spinner and you will be ahead of the game.
4.)Snacks, drinks, and a close bathroom. This is self explanitory, and not every fishing hole has a bathroom. Usually not an issue with boys.

The volunteers also have a great time giving back.
Off they Go!
Big smiles, this is what its all about. Love sharing out sport with these guys.
This young lady took the cake with this 21-inch flounder, her first fish ever, and on a kayak!
More volunteers enjoying a great day on the water.
If you get a chance I highly suggest volunteering for your local HOW chapter, their website is www.heroesonthewater.org

Not long after we got to Lake Rudee, we saw birds dipping and a small blitz. My client missed a hit and marks client got his bait cut in half. Mark managed to hook up and got an airshow before getting broke off.
Bryan Shuman from PA, and Mark casting to the blitz.
Donn Nalls from TN, first time flyfishing from a kayak. In all the day was slow, but everyone had a great time. Think we developed a few kayak anglers for sure. See you on the water!

I learned a very strong lesson last week. I had my two show kayaks up on my roof in prep for the Va Flyfishing Festival. On wednsday night someone cut my straps and relieved me of my brand new Camo Manta Ray 14.5. Moral of this story is to alway cable lock your kayaks down. A $8 cable lock could have saved me about a grand. Also go out and record the hull ID numbers off of your kayak ASAP. Ill never make this mistake again.

I had a great crowd for both of my talks, they were very interested and asked lots of questions.
They even laughed at my jokes!
Canoecopia was a great event and I hope to return. Headed to The Jersey Paddler's "Paddlesport" next week, see you there!
