Sleepy Dragonfly's Fishing Adventures

 

    Hi!   I am Sleepy D and I am a fishing fanatic.

My adorable guest star is my daughter, Little C.  She is the reason that this site and our YouTube channel began. When she turned four years old,  I decided it was time to teach her to fish.

I was once religiously on the lake at least once a week, but had set it aside until she could go too.

I bought a Beavertail Final Attack duck boat from an ad on CraigsList. It was perfect, (so I thought). It only weighed 75 lbs so could be car topped, it had an operating weight of 420lbs, was 14" deep, and had a cushion of 12" all the way around the cockpit so that Little C could not try to take a header into the drink without me having enough time to snag her first.  I fully intended to just row that sucker around the three "no gasoline" lakes around me. I would have been content.


THEN I SAW HER CONSISTANTLY CAST 20+ FEET ON HER FIRST DAY WITH HER MUNCHKIN ARM AND A PRINCESS POLE!


She awakened the creative monster that lives within me and the Sleepy Dragonfly was born!


Later, I met a guy that gave me a taste of kayak fishing. I was hooked. I found my first kayak on letgo and turned it into a superyak and dubbed it The Superfly. I later acquired a kids kayak that Little C calls Tinkerbell and another adult kayak that I call the Yellow Damselfly. Now I am on a roll. My superyak is getting it's final retrofit and then I hope to not go a week without it tasting water.

I have a 12' windsurf board that I am contemplating turning into a 500lb capacity kayak for my friends and guests that are a little more robust or like to take the kitchen sink too.

I may make it convertible from one man to two.


I look forward to you joining us on our fishing adventures and I hope you look forward to my next mods!
