Hobies and fishing
Posted by: Frambo on May-16-12 8:35 AM (EST)
We have a fair number of people in our paddle club with Hobies including myself. I think they make great fishing platforms and are built fairly well. Some of the spots I fish are quite remote and it's nice to be able to change it up to peddle or paddle along the way but the biggest advantage is getting to fish while peddling along or take a drink while underway. They are a little pricey but if I lost all of my kayaks, one of the peddle drives would. E the first to be replaced.
The only hassle I've had with mine is that the peddles seem to have an affinity for fly line. I use a stripping basket when throwing line out of it.
