re: I ventured over to The Dark Side yesterday... - BFIV
We're so new at this, we really don't know what we need. Just want something that's safe, lightweight enough to load it up and unload it, and is stable. Have lots of questions, though. I can't fish with a 7 foot double bladed paddle layin across my lap. Don't want to lose my gear when I flip it, ...

re: I ventured over to The Dark Side yesterday... - BFIV
We were just using their rental yaks. Probably 10 feet long? Wasn't very comfortable at all. Had to use the life jacket for a cushion against the "seat". I wouldn't think of buying a yak like the one we rented. It was still a blast, though. It was very narrow, maybe 24 inches? I know I hadn't ...

I ventured over to The Dark Side yesterday... - BFIV
Took a float trip down one of the three prime smallmouth fisheries in the country yesterday...in a yak. Never had been in one before in my life, and I'm here to tell yall, they WILL flip real easily. But it was 95 degrees and the river felt wonderful. You sure can't stand up to pee or lean over to...

C-Span is the channel to watch for the conventions - BFIV
No pundits, no talking heads, no commercials, and no one explaining to the viewer what these "experts" think we should believe or telling us what we just heard. I also like the call in comments when the proceedings are adjourned: just viewers' thoughts and opinions with no comments at all from the ...

re: Follow up question to CHL for women - BFIV
Mama BFIV knew nothing about firearms, either, especially handguns. I took her to a shooting range and let her choose some handguns she was interested in and that also felt "good" in her hands. I stepped out of the way, kept my mouth shut, and left her instruction in the hands of the very competen...
