New video, not the best video quality, I had the camera on the wrong setting but not too bad of a video.

Nice boat! I'll bet that makes difficult put-ins a breeze. Wink

It does, I think this boat may only be about 25-27 pounds when finished. I'm going to make it a solo with longer front and rear decking too. Judging from the final taper of the hull after it was done with the fairing, I'm guessing it will simply fly.

Enjoyed the weed guard tips, trying to make the tranistion to warm water tying from cold water.

How do you store your flies with the weed guards to keep them from developing memory? The few bass bugs I have the guards usually get warped out of shape or to one side and are useless.

Where do you find the nylon?

Will for my weedless flies I keep them in a slotted box like you might keep crank baits in. As to the hard nylon, you can find it in academy down along the coast. I would imagine that you might have to order it though up your way. I would imagine bass pro has it online.
