LOL...

I saw this and thought, "Wow! that looks easier than beach casting"...did a bit of web research and instead of spending 79.99 on a LIDL inflatable have invested in a Tarpon 140 Angler, C-Tug trolley, Garmin fishfinder and about two hundred quids worth of assorted YAk crap...... :headhurt:

Not complaining however...more excited than I have been in years of sea and fly fishing....Come on Parcelforce!!!

lol thats about right Finn, sounds like the kayak bug took a bite out of your pocket. Same goes for me too, but I already had the tampon 140 angler, greatest purchase I have ever made, only wish I'd bought one 20 years ago, but then I wonder what sort of yak would have been suitable back then?

I'm always on the lookout for yak related bargains at lidl and aldi. Sometimes they have soom useful stuff, sometimes its not worth the bother. :) I wondered about the lidl blow up purely for the summer evenings that I've not got the time to load up the yak and all the rest of my gear on the car, something to just faff about on the surf, with or without the rods.

Well, I know LIDL/ALDI have a poor reputation is some quarters, but that's normally with people who have never been in them...their 'cheap baked bean' campaign did them more harm than good IMO.
I have always found their stuff to be fantastic value for money and that blow-up for 80 looks like a bargain to me. It's even got a rucksack...that alone would probably cost you 50 in some shops.

I forgot to mention that I did go in and ask if they had any, but they are only stocking them at southern stores :(

At least the jet skiers couldn't claim they didn't see you on that!

:D

Kennosen: I'd send you one but I suspect the postage would be prohibitive, and if it turned out to be faulty you'd be scuppered.

I've heard about folk fishing off Hurst Castle but fishing off Bouncy Castle that's new I think

Good spec I see; flexible masts for the sail pre-installed!!! A bit too much freeboard I think will be the criticism.

What a vessel! Puffer Fish the quarry I guess?
