More like a good reason to stay home. Awesome experience that would be once you had changed your pants though.
Simple is as simple does.

Big bitties are getting real common in my home waters but as yet have not bothered any of us however I am from the "always be prepared" school of thought I put the following together as a bit fun for a talk I gave to my local forum on rigging a Hobie revolution with Yak Attack gear tracks and Railblaza products amongst others.

"It seams that its only a matter of time before we have an encounter in Perth with a Great White Shark whilst yakfishing so I decided having a kit with a few handy items in it would be prudent.This prototype is a little bulky but can easily be stored in the front hatch until needed when it is quickly attached to a front track to keep your hands free."

MK 1 kit contains
1, Great white indentification guide .
2,Tape measure as only great whites bigger than 4M are said to be potential man eaters .
3,basic first aid supplys Bandaids,Dettol and painkillers in case things dont go well...
4,Genuine YFW limited edition underpants .
5,Sorbent long roll toilet paper.
6,A wee dram to steady the nerves..

Future upgrades will see the addition of a pocket bible as I have been told seeing a GWS from that close is a religious experience ,a do it yourself will kit and a list of contacts for Perths News services .

Feed back received to date has indicated that volume of whiskey is inadequate and it should be a nice single malt.

The "Great White Encounter Kit" was the product of way too much time in my shed rigging my second Revo13 and maybe a bit too much paint fumes . Heres what drove me to it..... http://www.kayakfishingnz.com/forum/vie ... 51&t=10192" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
