Now that I was feeling confident I was positively itching to get out, though me being me I wasn't going to rack up my first fishing trip until I was as fully prepared as possible.
During the weeks of research prior to purchasing the yak I'd pretty much decided how I was going to rig it for fishing. The basic requirements were as follows.
- Adjustable rod holders
- Anchor trolley
- Stern Light
- Tackle storage
Nothing was rushed here, there was much sitting in the yak, thought given to structural strengthening, access whilst fishing & recovering from a capsize. The result is what can be seen below.fishfinder a Humminbird 565, the seat a Crazy Creek 3 with the tackle and bait boxes being sourced from Imax & Solent Plastics.
