I'm no fisherman, but I'd think you have to look at the one by

I've used the hobie kayak but not for fishing, the pedal propulsion
can move you along quickly and keep your hands free. I liked it enough
that I might try and find a used one.


"Jeepyak"? Now that does ring some bells from the past.


This doesn't happen to be Dougie Jaeger by any chance, does it? :-)

Yes, it's me,I'm just missing the jeep, IRL. The accidental drowning
on Memorial Day weekend on the Potomac brought me back as it triggered
momories both good and bad. I'm also going to get back into a kayak
this summer, hopefully I still fit.

Hopefully you do. I'm not sure I even fit in a Jeep any more. :-(

I've read a few posts, and one of the pleasant surprises has been a
lack of sponsons. I've found that family life can take away from
personal life, My job and changes in jobs has had a dramatic effect on
my boating. The kids cut into that time even more so, my daughter has
somewhat disappointed me, she's a SWIMMER! *gasp* She does well, and I
couldn't be more proud of her achievments, and my son was a swimmer
and is now into karate. I now have finally been able to find some
balance, and hopefully I'll be boating soon, even if it's flat water
paddeling.

Good luck with the Canyon trip, that'll be fun, and I'm a wee bit
jealous.

Yeah, I didn't expect him to be anyone else, but since it had been such
a long time ago since I spotted that email address here on RBP, I
couldn't help but wanting to make sure it was Dougie. :-)

For me most of the magic of whitewater kayaking has evaporated. Besides
having done pretty much everything I had set out to do, whitewater
difficulty and playboatwise, it also didn't help that I had a bad
boating accident. Add the fact that most of my boating buddies have
started to get kids and stopped boating and seeing how I am no longer
finding myself near the mountains every second weekend (GF moved in with
me), the frequency of finding myself in a boat has gone down considerably.

I still boat class IV stuff, but it's relaxed boating, usually on
streams I know well instead of hunting for new runs, getting excited
with every announcement of a thunderstorm and trying to run everything
in sight.

This past year we even went on two non-paddling-related holidays (that's
been the first time in about 15 years for me)! Eek!

Then again, because of all the cycling, hiking and what not I am getting
in much better shape then I ever was in the last decade or so. Funny to
see that 33" waist pants I wore a decade ago suddenly fit again, after
having been buying only 36" waist pants for the last couple of years. :-)

Wilko, I read about you loosing a 1/2", don't worry you have plenty
height to spare. I'm blessed to still live close to the Potomac,
and I've taken my kids there to hike and climb on the rocks. My son
now considers this a special spot, somewhere he and I can go and feel
completely at ease. I hope to get him into kayaking, he sees what fun
they have on the river and hears me speak fondly of the sport so I
think it's just a matter of time.

My wife and kids have prevented me from progressing further on the
whitewater level. I don't have the time to train, or the desire to
push the limits. I have fun on any type of water, white, flat or salt,
and that's what is important. Keep enjoying your local runs, they are
like friends you find comfort with, and you know they are reliable.

I still look forward to heavy rains, and keep an eye on the guages.
One thing I want to do is take the kids to Great Falls during high
water just so they can see for themselves what happens. They hear me
tell stories, and look at the high water pole on the VA side, but it
doesn't do it justice. Have fun on the water, and hopefully I'll be
having fun out there soon enough.

Default Is the inflatable Kayak an option?

Not sure if this applies to you but have you ever considered using an inflatable kayak? I was wondering if any of the Sevylor kayaks could be used for fishing as they are made of a really strong tarpaulin as they say and judging by the reviews I read online they seem to work just fine. Here is one I consider buying but still shopping around to see if I can get a better one ...
