Would landing constitute hauling on top of the kayak or simply releasing at the side. I'm in favour of pulling the fish on top, sorts the men out from the boys :lol: Especially if its a shark :clap:

How Water Confident Are You?
Pussy - Didn't even like getting my feet wet.
Log - Can Float, but no good at swimming.
Dog - Can Swim If Needed, but not great at it.
Lab - Give Me An Excuse Ta Get Wet, swim well as long as I am on top of the water.
Otter - Will Make An Excuse To Get Wet, swims well on top and under the water up to 60feet.
Dolphin - Prefers To Be In The Water, Swims Like Marks Spitts and free dives like the Dolphin Man.

I'd put myself at the Otter Level.
I would love ta know how water confident ya guys are. I'm coming across a few Kayakers that aren't good swimmers, and am wondering how common this is, and what do they do ta stay safe on the water.
For me, good water confidence has changed most "Turtling"/"Self Rescues" from "Potentially Life Threatening" to "Well that Was Fun, Let's Do It Again".
So what do you do ta stay safe if ya end up in the water?

Rate Your Kayak
List 3 pros and 3 cons
This could be very helpful to existing as well as new members when buying a first kayak or upgrading,Ive spoken to a lot of good and helpful sales people but the most genuine information has always come from owners who are using them regularly and have nothing to gain out of sharing their knowlege.
Cheers

love 2 fish
