Wow! I have the smaller "brother" a Outlaw Escape. I have the same valves and oar holders (although I usually never take the oars) I like to kick the Scadden "Omega" flip fins when I'm fly fishing.
Mine is 21 lbs, and a bit smaller than yours. Dave Scadden makes some really nice fly fishing 'toons!
Way to go! Looks like you will have a lot of great fly fishing times ahead.
Check this out, Joni. This girl looks a lot like you?
