Gary’s kayak anglers group is growing. says Gary: –
“We all stay in touch on the water via VHF radio, and conclude our trips with lunch at a local restaurant on the water where we trade fish stories, which makes for fun days –
More Ozello trout and redfish, and a few needle fish today fishing with fellow Wavewalkers Bob Smaldone and Dick Sherman along with a couple of other non-W friends. I happened to snap a picture of Bob taking a picture of me holding up a redfish.”
Bob, the fly fisherman is paddling standing in his W fishing kayak, and sight fishing
I have been flyfishing around the world for 20 years, much of it in a kayak.
I found only two things were missing: a comfortable seating position and the ability to stand up for sighting fish.
After studying videos at Wavewalk, I ordered an inventory of Wavewalk kayaks without even seeing one.
Upon receipt I tested the Wavewalk… -I am 70 years old, weigh 230, have a bad back, need a knee replacement, and have constant vertigo from a chronic ear condition.
During my initial test I was able to stand up and paddle and really enjoyed the seating position called Riding.
IF I CAN DO IT, ANYONE CAN!!
The Wavewalk 500 is fast and runs straight.
Everything you read is correct.
Kayak Fishing Unlimited is not just a slogan – It’s a reality, at least for some.
So far, kayak fishing hasn’t appealed to Canadian anglers, since they fish in cold water and cold weather, which are good reasons for wanting to be stable, dry, and protected from the cold wind and elements. Needles to say that conventional sit-in, hybrid and sit-on-top (SOT) fishing kayaks don’t deliver anything close to being acceptable when these basic requirements are taken into consideration, and they don’t offer stand up paddling confidently when you’re sight fishing, and fly fishing.
Anglers who fish from W kayaks know they are different, and they fit cold climates as big, motorized fishing boats do.
Boyd Smith, from Hamilton, Ontario, discovered the benefits that W kayaks offer, and he decided he wanted to import them from the US.
Boyd founded Ontario Fishing Kayaks, and he offers Canadian anglers who are looking to downsize from motorboats or quit fishing from inadequate fishing kayaks to take a W kayak for a test ride, or a fishing trip. By doing so, these Canadian anglers will be able to experience the unrivaled stability, dryness, comfort and ease of use, which are synonym to W fishing kayaks: No wet butt, no yak back, and no leg numbness. In other words – the real deal.
W fishing kayak fans are known to say about it: “Nothing like it, nothing better”.
Those who want to enjoy both paddling and motorized driving can outfit their W kayak with an outboard gas engine, and thus be on par with anglers who fish from traditional motorboats. Learn more about motorized fishing kayaks >>
The Zeepty Channel on YouTube is quite a phenomenon. It features over 130 kayak fishing related movies, and since it was founded it has already had over 750,000 views, of which over 280,000 in 2011. The videos feature mainly Wavewalk’s fishing kayaks of the now discontinued W300 series, and a bunch of movies featuring kayaks from the new W500 series.
You can spend literally hours on the Zeepty, and enjoy watching these fun videos.
