Jackson Kayak MayFly

leah kirk

Jackson Kayak’s MayFly fishing kayak is designed and built specifically for fly anglers.  This sit-on-top kayak is designed for fishing waters that range from trout streams, to lakes and ponds and inshore flats alike.  Jackson has developed a snag-free deck by making it difficult to hook a line around foot rests, storage and other key components, but without losing the Jackson advantage of a great fishing set up. This new elite kayak will also come with the new Platypus® Hydration System, a new feature to Jackson Kayak’s top fishing kayaks.

 This kayak will feature some great new fly fishing specific accessories and features like fly patches, fly rod and hidden fly box sized storage. The MayFly is design to aid in fly line management. It is 12’6” long and 34” wide for increased speed and tracking. The MayFly is a clean and well organized kayak featuring flip-down down and snag-free fly box storage bins with integrated fly patches on sidewalls. An open footwell area makes it easy to stand and move around, and present a snag-free place to strip line.

The MayFly’s longer hull offers a versatile balance of speed and maneuverability. Well-suited for flatwater, it can also handle calm moving water environments common to fly anglers. The wider hull is great for beginners and anglers who like to move between sitting and standing. The new Elite Seat 3.0 System has multiple hi/lo positions and can move forward and aft for self-trimming. A Therm-a-Rest® lumbar pad enhances seated comfort. The seat can also be removed for use on shore. Easily accessible storage areas on the deck, and bow and stern hatches to interior storage are secured with hinging hatches. The front hatch is designed as a paddle holder.

 The MayFly represents years of real-world experience kayak fly fishing all over the world, and says that yes, you too, may fly fish from a kayak. It will be available at Jackson Kayak dealers in 2017. Manufacturer suggested retail price is $1,799.

Beau Beasley, director of the Virginia Fly Fishing & Wine Festival has announced the next March (11-12) the 1st Annual Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival (TFFF). The venue is the Plano Center, located miles north of Dallas.  

“We are thrilled that the TFFF chose Plano,” said Mark Thompson, Director of Visit Plano. ”This unique event is a first for Plano and should attract attendees from all over the region. We look forward to helping Beau and his team make this another signature event for Plano.”

Dallas-based fly rod manufacturer Temple Fork Outfitters and the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation are early sponsors of the festival. “The region has been waiting for an event just like this one–for a new approach to fly fishing,” said TFO owner Rick Pope.

The TFFF will feature lectures and classes throughout the weekend on techniques and tactics for novices and advanced casters alike, exotic fishing locales, fishing etiquette, and much more. Also offered are free Women-Only Casting Classes as well as one-on-one instruction in basic knot-tying skills. Attendees can sit down at the vise for hands-on fly-tying instruction from members of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing.  Experienced anglers may considered enrolling in more advanced distance-casting or Spey-casting classes with expert specialized instructors. Fly fishing icon Lefty Kreh will speak as well.

 “Fly fishing is easy, affordable, family-friendly, and fun,” says Beasley. “Our Texas festival is in Plano–that’s within easy driving distance of eight million people. Think of what fishing together can do for family life.”
