The Big One that Got Away

I finally gave up on finding company yesterday and flew Kahana by myself. Later Nick showed up and offered to drive retrieve, so I flew downrange to see how far I could make it - I only went to Pounders this time, but I think conditions were good to go farther. I'm very interested in exploring the distance options but I'd rather do it with some company. This is the easiest and most reliable XC route on the island but there's still lots to learn. For example, I didn't see the fishing poles as I made my final approach at Pounders and I snagged a line just before landing, jangling the bell on the pole like the guy had a marlin on the line. Thanks to Nick for the retrieve, and the cold refreshments.
