Thanks for showing me yours unfortunatly i cant show you mine cos i dont have one yet :(

Im the one sat by the computer green with envy. nice set up.

One newbie type question. Is the pully system along each side something to do with anchoring or are the fish in your area so large you have to tow them back? :D :D

Hiya Darnsarf.

Youll have your Yak soon enough mate.
Where abouts are you?
The pulley system is only down one side of the Yak, the other side has bow and stern lines fitted.
Your absolutly right, yes.......the fish are that big...... :D

Have you had any thoughts as to what Kayak youd like when your ready to get one?
Although your still waiting for her, you can always start making bits and bobs in readiness for her arrival :)
Keep in touch, and let us know how your plans are doing, and what rigging ideas you may have.

Cheers DS

Im in Hampshire. Starvin has kindly offered to break my yakking virginity at some point in the near future.

After looking at this site and others the Prowler or Caper seem to be favorites. Just so busy at the moment cant get down to Bournemouth Canoes for a proper look.

Great to see a proper working rigged yak though. Take it that you are a Prowler fan?

Hi DS.

Yes the Caper and the Prowler are very much in favour, and popular Kayaks.
Having Paddled the Caper, and the Prowler 13 and 15, I would go the Prowler route without a doubt, but thats a personal comment.

All depends on what YOU are happy with.
Think of transporting, storage, wieght, and what types of fishing you want to do, what kit you feel you will want on the Kayak, to fish efficiently, think about the distance you may want to paddle aswell.
Lots out there, just have to pick yours:D

The Scrambler XT is a wicked Kayak, if you dont need a hatches.

Take a look at them all:D

Some nice clear water you have there YY. What sort of species do you catch there? I'm guessing bass looking at your set up.

Hiya Dan.

Your absolutly right mate, Bass is the main target species I fish for.
The area holds a good array of other species too.
We fish a catch and return policy, but the odd one does come home for the table.

Ill take some sceenery pics the next time Im out for you to have a look at.
If I remember the bl**dy camera:D

Cheers Dan.

She's looking good yakity, great job, as always would love to pinch the shots if that's all right with you.

Hope you're going to put her to some use in the Tournament on the 4th September. :)

Darnsarf, the fish really are that big down in Devon. :D Don't worry we will get out soon.

Looking forward to it SM.

Thanks for the tip re Scrambler XT Yakity. Just looked it up. As it has no hatch can you still fit fishfinders etc. How often on a day trip do you need a hatch. Does it handle as well as the P13. If it is just the hatch thats the main difference and a hatch is not often required for day trips then at a 100 cheaper its got to be worth considering. Thanks Im even more confused now!

:confused: :D :D
