Hi Folks

Im a potential new yak fisherman. I have a stink boat but I think seeing some of you guys off Ricketts got me thinking. Having a young family it can be hard to pull off as many trips as I would like but living close to the PPB, the Yak would be an easy push down and away you go....Sounds good and the paddle I would sure enjoy too.
Anyway just wanted to say hello and Ill do some reading and if possible Ill ask the odd dumb question
cheers

Hi Pieman

Welcome, you'll have more fun in a yak. Keep an eye on the Rickets posts, join in and watch Poddy clean up.

Cheers

Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish. If you are desperate for the old content of this particular post, it is available below base64 encoded and bzip2 compressed.

Welcome to the forum mate.
Looks like a lot of people are taking a yak over the Boat.
The only dumb question i think is the one you never asked.

Hi Peelsman, My young family is no longer young and have left the nest. Some of the best fun we ever had together when they were young involved canoes, fishing and camping so don't neglect the possibility of taking the "young family" with you from time to time, in appropriate conditions of course.

Welcome to the forum.

thanks Chaps
yes i was hopeing to sneak out Sunday on the stink boat but this wind is driving me nuts, howling first from the NW and then promises to swing round to the S at 25+. Even a little too wild for a yak I would imagine.
With my pending redundancy scheduled for a 1 month count down, the mid-week escapades should ease the pain however.

Hiya Pieman, ya more than welcome to check over a few yaks and have a chat at any Mango outting from Ricketts. A few different fishing techniques from the yak get covered and paddlers have some good ideas on rigging up. We're always interested in picking up on new fishing knowledge from others as well. Keep an eye under "Fishing Trips". Who knows, we might even sell ya Kevin's yak real cheap (if he's not looking)....and throw in his rod's to sweeten the deal :wink:
