I have never had luck with trout on stillwaters, particularly one nearby where flies can't be cast far from sure. But put two skilled anglers in kayaks, one with spinners and the other bucktails in there, and stocked rainbow trout will fly. I have always wanted to try a kayak in that pond, I just knew it was the ticket. The bows took the red and yellow bucktail with force, and preformed great acrobatics. Two crappies also took the fly.
