    Well if I was headed out on a boat (even a float tube), I'd avoid comparison with him. There might be some sizable large-mouth in some of those Kansas ponds.

    Go with a Fish Cat 4 tube, or some form of the fish cat (such as the Fat Cat). I personally have the Fish Cat 4 and couldn't be happier. Its an excellent tube and you will definitely be hooked when you try out tubing.

    I have actually fished for trout in a city lake in the town of garnett kansas on the way back from a deer hunt last fall. of course you wouldn't be able to fish for them in the summer but its worth a try.

    There is fish in Kansas? Learn something new everyday hahahaha

    I am not sure what area you are from, but if you ever need a couch to crash on in Overland Park area mine is open for free, I have a killer TV and sound system, but other than that my place is pretty boring since I refuse to waste money on "artwork" lol

    But the offer is out there if you ever need it.

    You are a pretty nice guy there Stuie. You should do what I do for art work. Cover the walls in fish pictures.

    As my thread on float tubes indicates, I'm thinking of buying one. A float tube opens up all kinds of little lakes and ponds.

    I'm also in graduate school (History, Kansas State) and need to do some research this summer. I perfected a good scheme last summer--find a campground near an archives, research in the day, fish the evenings. I'm thinking of hitting some local archives on one trip. A day or two researching in each place and a chance to explore some new waters in each location. (Not to mention being able to put the gas, food, and camp fees on the education budget rather than my own!)
    I'm planning on studying for the bar in a similar way - I want to work it so this summer I have only two distractions, study and fishing during low light. My plan is to get in the truck and head west, do a lot of camping, come in to small public libraries midday to get on the net, and hit locations like silver creek, the gunnison, green, probably ending up somewhere near the deschutes and then flying back to take the exam.

    Or just throw up some simple shelves and put all your fishing gear on them. I decorated my work cubicle with all my flies this winter. Stuck them all in the cloth walling material. I also took two of my mounted fish and hung them in the cubicle as well.
