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 the envy of the sea. I was thinking a recliner chair, foam esky and a couple of shelves for my hand lines and cheese n pickle sandwiches. Nice and tidy...

Cheers all,

KLB.

Hmmm I got heaps of awesome tips, get a longer handle on that paddle, sit a little more to the back of the yak . And banana sandwiches rule

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 would like to come for a fish with me some time. My local is the Panmure basin if you're nearby?

You'll get feedback, not sure you'll get "pro" tips though LOL

Will you be supplying a new updated pic for the home page or should I go ahead and use the one above? The current one looks a little old... :rofl:

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. Hoping to find some no nonsense funny feckers out there to mingle with. Hope this sport hasn’t become politics and dicks.
