Re: Are we loosing the "brotherhood "??

Great to see some good discussion and feedback ! Like many I " migrated" into the sport off the back of some fishing at an early age, surfcasting and then long lining, so I'm a fisherman foremost and a paddler for a bit of passion. I've paddled the major NZ made brands and now own both a Viking and ...

Are we loosing the "brotherhood "??

I borrowed this article from the Reef Kayak Fishing FB page.... Have a read and have a bit of a think ! Why did you start kayak fishing ?.... why do kayak fish ? Are we heading down the same path, or have we already got there ? Can we bring "it" back ? http://riverratzkayakfishing.com/kayak-brotherh...

Re: Heavy kayak loading systems

Very nice !.... just a question... any particular reason why you didn't get a "standard" type trailer and use that with maybe a minor mod or two ?.... by doing that you would have had something more multi purpose ??
But still looks great all the same !!

Re: Heavy kayak loading systems

I have used the roller thing attached with suction cups on back window of Camry wagon. Worked well. Even forgot to take off once and it stayed there for 100km. Was cheap off eBay or Amazon. lol, how do you "forget" about something on your rear window for 100kms? Have you not seen that classic movie...

I think LIGHT usage is probably good for it. That doesn't include hard paddling, playing monster fish or loading/unloading your yak!
....isn't a Reload classed as light !? :lol:

Just a little paddle.......!

Well after 4 x enforced months off the water and no fishing following my wrist repair, the surgeon gave me the "green light" for a " gentle short paddle...of say...20 mins..." to test out the wrist. So loaded up the gear and decided to try somewhere relatively close and new, so ended up at Rothesay ...

Previously I could click on new posts or unread posts (can't remember exactly what it was called). Is this possible on the upgraded forum?
