    As several others have already pointed out, and because I am a retired Coastie, I will only recommend an inherently bouyant PFD, not a self or manual inflating type. Saw a guy drown who was wearing a...

    sorry, no experience with that. In my Kakak fishing, as with other things, I try to work hard at simplifying everything. The less crap hanging off or sticking out, the better. Some kayak...

    I disagree that any heavy wire hooks are required at all for pike flies. I have never had a pike bend any quality hook. Good "standard" wire hooks such as Mustad C52SBLN or Gama B10S are...
