Having attended Diane's casting class and hooked-up with several fish, Dawn readied for her kayak lesson. Believing their is no better way to learn than baptism-by-fire, we showed Dawn paddle strokes and how to hold her paddle, and then put her in the kayak. We used the South Llano River State Park's river access as our put-in point, and Dawn paddled around while we assisted one another in getting launched.
Cody built my own anchor, and I loved using it. I could hold in positions that in previous years weren't possible. As a result, for the first time, I fished a beautiful, tree-shaded curve just after the bridge at the state park, that has always looked fishy, and I was rewarded pleasantly so with a beautiful Rio Grande Perch, one of my favorite freshwater fish.
