Paddle pants

Off the back end of Hainesy's "shell suit comeback" comment... Where is a good place to get some new paddle pants on a budget? Are Rasdax still king, if so where from.

Baaahaaa... Snap! Yeah I saw that and nearly choked. Showed the missus... The new one that is and she laughed. Or was that at Hainesys shell suit? I must admit to getting a little excited about getting back out. Got a GT for now and fairly well kitted out so just gotta take the plunge when I can. Ho...

Re: KLB - Getting back into fishing...

Thanks awondering... Neat name, any story behind that? I was told a two piece handle might be better, one for each hand. Sitting towards the back would make more room for my pet poodle and banana sammys sound swell. But wouldn't want to temp Davy Jones needing a snack also. Thanks and maybe you woul...

KLB - Getting back into fishing...

Hey all, Been awhile... I used to do a little bit of kayak fishing and now pretty keen to get back into it. I've got myself a fancy new kayak and just looking to deck her out and get the ol' girl wet. Hoping this is still the place to come for all the pro tips! Any ideas as to what make this beauty ...

Spearfishing from the kayak?

Had a quick search and found some posts but gonna crack on with a new thread. For the years I've fished from a yak I've never ever wanted to get in the water. But now... for some reason after being asked if I would be keen to try spearfishing, I can't get the thought out of my head. I've been asking...

Re: Errrr Sharks?

I saw awondering fall in the drink once (cant remember why :?: ) over at Miners Head at the Barrier. Not too long earlier a shark was cruising by... Funny as hell watching him get back in.

Turn your kayaking hobby into a career... Worth a look! Auckland Outdoor Adventure business opportunity.

Folks... Been a while since I've been on the forum... probably not since G1 had a sex change and took up long walks on the beach instead of kayak fishing. Although, if I recall his kayak fishing was like a long walk on the beach :^) :?: :lol: I work in the employment sector and a sister business of ...

Re: Northland or the Coromandel

No question, North for the big'uns. Coro is stunning as a location but if you can manage the remoteness of North, go there.

You could paddle to the Mokes. I saw awondering drop a Snapper over the side that looked close to 30lb. :^) :lol:
