View Full Version : New in Roswell
Just moved to the Roswell Area from west central Florida. I grew up in Maine fishing for Browns, Brook and Lake Trout along with the Landlocked and Atlantic Salmon. I would love to meet a few folks in this area that wont mind showing me the waters in North Georgia. I have an old fly rod that needs to be put back to work after 4 years of chasing snook, Specks, and tarpon in florida with spinning gear. I have a kayak that I fish from and although I dont have any waders yet christmas is just around the corner.

Yakfishing rocks, I paddle East Central Fl. every chance I get. Dust off that flyrod and get ready to have fun. Can't fish for a while but when I do we can hook up. See ya on the water.
Be glaad to hook up with ya. I manage a large clothing store in Roswell so my time will be limited til after the middle january. Have to go back to Tampa for a wedding in mid january and then it's time to get busy on the water. Check out our website in florida if you like yak fishing. Paddle-fishing.com

lurk your site a bit, fish with Stubb and the Mosquito Lagooners. What yak do you paddle?
Having been raised on the rivers and lakes of maine I paddle an Old Town of course. I use a Loon 111 that is rigged with two flush mounts behind the seat and I have a scotty that I have yet to mount that I won at the Tampa stop of the Extreme Edge Fishing Series Tourney.

That 111 is perfect for local waters. I have a OK Scupper Pro T/W that I haven't tried the river with yet. Have floted everything else short of water wings.
yeah, The 111 is a great all around yak. Keeps me warmer in the cold times and keeps the sun off of my legs in the Summer. A really stable boat that held up real well against all the oyster bars down in florida. I've caught everything from flounder to Tarpon in the thing(although I dont recommend trying that one again without a drift chute to slow the **** things down.) I am looking forward to catching a few trout for the frying pan from it but I really want to tangle with a striper in it.

Welcome. Glad to have you here at NGTO.
A lot of us here at NGTO do a bit of paddling. However, most of our trout streams are too small to be paddled. Some of the folks who fish the bigger water more often have Yaks and Canoes.
You may want to post the same Question in the General board.
thanks for the response folks. Going to be headed over to BP in lawrenceville before too long to get myself a few flies and possibly a beginer kit to start trying to tie a few patterns and see if I can remember any from my youth. My brother spends the winters tying for the next summer so I may mooch a few from him. See ya on the water somewhere between here and there.
