*Let`s see if I can entice a few of you a bit to pick up a copy of the June NJ edition of The Fisherman magazine.......

The story is about how I targeted `ol Esox with just a my fly-rod, a few flies, & of course, my `Yak. This is one of the river `Gators that I wrangled up that day. Very challenging indeed to do this with a fly-rod. Especially while fishing out of and navigating the `Yak in a river.

Hope you all enjoy the article in the magazine. Ken-

Ken, You are the Man! A fish like that would stress a saltwater set up. They break off my Treble hooks. But You can get them into a Kayak with a fly rod. Amazing!! Ken, I am reading a book right now called "Pro Tactics Northern Pike" by Jack Penny. He and his wife are considered experts and hold many records. He is a strong believer in catch and release. One point he makes is to never hold them upright, but cradle them with wet hands in a lateral position to avoid internal damage. Then back in the water quickly after the photo.
