update, in case you were wondering: found a lady-shaped PFD (yep, they make 'em!), have learned how to mount the new rack and get the kayak lashed onto it, have taken a test run out on the roads, have made a safe place under the deck for it to live...time to go fishing! Sunday is the day...
a question, Gigmaster: why do you take off the PFDs for photos? you can answer personal preference if you like. some folks think it's weird that my hat is on in all the grip'n'grins, but my sunglasses and hat are much more good-looking than my sunburned face and blown-about hair!

fly fishing and baseball share a totally deceptive simplicity; that's why they can both be lifelong pursuits.
