That one not too bad Flangie, anything over 7' is a pain tho, at least these can take a bit of hi-shick to get it in the net!!

 

Its always a compromise between length and strength in the yak!

Start your own yak fishing show. There would certainly be an audience

That is exactly the direction I want to head in my fishing (after seeing your other kayak fishing vids ) the freedom of a kayak in remote areas catching hard running fish

It seems to me that you

It seems to me that you specialise in fishing from small boats/kayaks.

You had a Finn Spindrift for sale a while ago, do yuo still have that one?

What are these little tenders like stability wise and how is the weight awkwardness factor in handling these please?

Heya Glast

The little Gizmo wasn't bad, but i found it didn't really offer anything the yak didnt, other that being able to take a second, but then it was restricted in range, stability and rough water handling even further. The Gizmo was very light, easily handled by one, and with a light motor launching in some places other than designated boat ramps really opened up possibilities.

 

Yaks are my passion mate, i've never really even owned a boat, and frankly i can't ever see it happening!!

 Cool video and good work

 Cool video and good work filming from your lady friend from another kayak, real steady hand, alot of people take the effort put into filming for granted when watching vids from youtube etc.
