Re: Spearo / freediving pool training

Just found this thread, and decided to time my breath hold while at computer, I can do 2:30. Im a keen snorkeller and have always wanted to get into spearfishing and/or scuba. Now I have a yak (collecting it tonight! :D ) I will be able to get to interesting dive spots.

Re: Noob from Whangarei - keen to get into kayak fishing

Re: Up the Creek (Warning: No Fishing involved)

Nice story, thanks for sharing this with us - photos as always look awesome, btw what yak is that you're in?

While I'm at it does anyone have any good urls of other methods of rigging for kayak fishing, eg livebait rig, softbait, jigs, bait etc. (That's porbably 10 topics and a half!) ...

Yeah Winches package looks awesome, however once again it's a bit out of my league, maybe I'll offer to mow his lawns and trim his hedges (hmm, I can just hear you filthy minders laughing at that !!)

Re: Noob from Whangarei - keen to get into kayak fishing
