Re: Pants

Might be a silly question, but if you are trying to seal them up around the ankle they must also seal up top to stop them turning into a giant bucket that wont empty when you turtle right? How does this work?

Re: Re Entry Tips

For me, it's much easier to reach under the yak and grab a handle to right it when flipped, had trouble climbing over it to flip it from the top side. From there it's mostly a matter of practising to find where you can grab on and put your weight without rolling it again. Give some thought to where ...

Re: Army Bay Saturday

Oh I also wanted to mention what a cool bunch kayak fishers are in general. I chatted to quite a few on the water, some from the forum, some from North Shore and Hibiscus clubs and some total newbies just getting into it. Everyone was friendly and seemed to be enjoying themselves out there whether t...

Army Bay Saturday

After some windy weekends the weather turned out just perfect yesterday so I headed up to Army Bay. The light breeze in the morning dropped away, there was no swell and the cloud cover kept the sun at bay. It was so nice I ended up floating around for over 7 hours. The fishing was a constant stream ...

Re: Fishing Buddy !!!!

Welcome to the forum :) If you head up to Army Bay any Saturday or Sunday with nice weather you're bound to run into a ton of kayakers. I think more of us should probably post a note in the regional forum a few days before the weekend to meet up, otherwise always welcome to drop me a private message...

Re: Kayaker rescued - worthwhile read

Re: Kayaker rescued - worthwhile read

Good read, thanks. I wonder what the vomiting was bought on by, going in to shock (from cold?) or just over exertion?

Also if there's a good guide around to appropriate kayak clothing especially with the winter months coming up that would be great...

Given the weather report I think there'll be a few of us out there! I'll be in one of the standard North Shore haunts Sat morning at least.

It says "I had always been under the impression that proper clothing was very expensive." then proceeds to list over $600 of gear for an outfit.

Re: Interesting conversation

I've been making a point of wearing my inflatable one while rock fishing lately (when the weather puts me off the yak) and I've had a few people quietly comment that they should think about it too. Especially with the new ones that are so light you barely notice it on all day.

Re: Mahurangi / Sullivan's 12.4.15 - The magnificent..seve… oh,…. six.

Good fun, but treble hooks - WTF?! :swear: What a pain in the rear! Unhooking and releasing was a mission. Worth swapping to singles? Or flattening the barbs?? I said much the same in another thread recently, others seem to do OK with them though. I'm experimenting with single hooks. Nice work on t...

Re: Using a 3D printer

It's such a cool technology, and very useful for certain applications. I designed a custom transducer mount for my yak and had it printed by someone else, it's working out great!
