Re: Does anyone have a steelhead hammer recipe?

I think I would bake/stuff (sage stuffing) it with a little spritz of lemon. :)

Re: Korkers Hyjacks

ditz, trailer is definitely the way to go.

Re: Kayak Question

SOT all the way:
Ample storage, stand up, sit sidesaddle, virtually unsinkable.

Stability is the key for a fishing platform.

Try it out before you buy it!

Re: Orvis Superfine 3wt- maybe the best for me

Every once and awhile, one particular set-up will speak to you.
If you can afford it, buy it or you will be thinking about that rod forever.

Your post made me think of my "One That Got Away".
