“Ride the Bull” Recap...

There was 170 kayakers participating this year. Those numbers blew us away! We had a great feild and a wonderful tournament. No Bulls were caught on the fly, but there were several fly fishermen from other clubs such as: Fin-Addict Fly Fishers, Magnolia Fly Fishers, Red Stick Fly Fishers, Acadiana Fly Rodders present. It's hard to say how many folks actually fished flies because the rules allowed anglers to fish both gear and fly tackle - you didn't have to commit to just one. In fact, some flyrodders I know fished strictly gear because the top prizes were kayaks from Hobie and Kajun Kayak.  Had a blast at the event.  It was a first class event by all that put it on.  Met some new people in the fly fishing world and made some good conversation.  I managed to ride a bull but it was of the different color, still fun though.  I fished most of the day with cracked crab and for the final 3.5 hrs I stuck it out throwing the 12wt. With a 750 grain line.  What a workout that was.  I now have a very sore arm from it but still fun.  If you weren't there then you just missed the site of 170 kayaks across Caminada Pass.  It was truley something to see.
