    The one thing you stated about casting a 10wt from a yak will be tireing. Now there is more of a reason to get an 8 wt for most my yaking. This way when I adventure out front off the beach and the 30 and 40 lbers are out there I have the 10wt.

    I have lots to learn and do for the spring dance with the stripers so I will get to it.

    Thanks again for everything I will keep you posted and will call on you for info when needed at a later date, much appreciation guys

    Good luck brian, these guys forgot to mention one thing, MASH YOUR BARBS, this has nothing to do with catch &release, it is just easier to pull them out of yourself as you hike the learning curve.

    A possible consideration to be taken into account so as to minimize the point of entry wounds in the next hat selection?

    Now , we just need to work on the design. Should it have a semi sports look in sink sponge green like the non gale force model currently in use, or should it have a black flack tactical look. Maybe with a couple of those armor tiles in the ear flaps?????

    I don't know, there is a lot to iron out here. Maybe we should skip the tiles, stay with the Kevlar, and talk to the manufacturers of Artic Armor. If we can make this baby float, and it happens to be all that you are wearing for PFD protection, at least your head will be bobbing in the water like a wine cork.

    I like the balistic tiles in the ear flaps idea, but how about we incorporate airbag technology into the unit and when you fall out of the boat and hit the water the bags inflate and your head bobs above the water......and then there could be a signal beacon and audible device activated and there you are bobbing around makeing noise and flahing away your location.....i think were on to something here

    OK so we need a lash tab and beacon . That's easy enough. Air bags should be able to be fitted in. Cutting edge technology . Is there any application for helium here?

    The audible is a bit more complex. Need waterproof construction, and slim profile rechargable batteries, with an extended life. Audible signal?????, how about a continuously playing rendition of 99 bottles of beer on the wall?

    Need a test pilot for this device. Chuck Yeager is long since retired, so we lost getting him. Do we know anybody else that has a last name that starts with a Y?

    Second that sentiment Pete, Yikes, that would be horrible. Why not just play a recording of a baby seal screaming. But make it only start once the sun goes down. Maybe an automatic chum dispencer.

    Another thought in the development. We need a northern and southern unit
