Title: Krac Paddle
Post by: crashdive123 on August 10, 2014, 09:15:58 AM
Had a fantastic time on the water with Spyder, Yellowyak and Swamphanger.  I was pleased that I did not hurt myself, capsize or otherwise draw undue attention to myself.

Awesome pictures Crash. I really like the one of Spyder and Swamp, with Swamp's fly line in action. It was a perfect day out with a great group of friends.

GREAT PHOTOS, CRASH! :thumbsup:   You guys sure have some idyllic places to to float down there....looks like the country is tailor-made for canoes!
                                                 :canoe: :canoe: :canoe: :canoe:


I noticed an airboat in one of the earlier photos.  Any problem or danger of being run into (or over) around bends and such......or are they pretty concientous?  :shrug:

Wolfy, all powered boats have been very courtesy during our floats, of course we hear them coming and have time to move over, but as soon as they see a canoe they come to an idle.

I posted my photo's over in the Florida section.

Already saw your photos, Graylan....that's why I was a little concerned about the airboat traffic. :-\    We sometimes have some 'sphincter-puckering moments' with bass boats in the narrow backwaters of some of the cattail marshes up here on the Missouri. >:(

Wolfy I've been going to that part of the river for almost 16 years. I've only once had an airboater be rude. I don't like the noise but they are good people.

I only took one picture with one of the power boats in it.  They were all very conscientious of the paddlers.

Now I really miss not going on the trip.

Like Greg said the pictures of the flyline were cool shots.
