Father and Son Kayak Fishing and Camping Trip Report, Norway and Sweden

Then it was time to go fishing with my son, Ivar. After all the positive things that I told him about Wavewalk fishing kayaks, he was very curious. Then there was a 4 day trip on Foxen / Le Stora in Sweden. We had a nice camp on a small island, where we went out with our kayaks. There were a lot of fish, we shared the pike, and then I got a bream on the hook, which is pretty rare. We saw the beaver and osprey, and many other bird species. We spent many hours in the kayak, up to eight hours a day. I had never been able to fish that long from any canoe or kayak. It wasn't enough for Ivar just to sit in Wavewalk, and he tried a number of positions while he fished. Being able to stand and fish from his Wavewalk kayak seemed like a great advantage to Ivar.

Spending time outdoors has always been popular in Scandinavia. Here is a trip report that we translated from Norwegian. 

Transporting a Wavewalk kayak is a simple matter. You do not need any special roof racks, since it is very stable (just like on the water) on a normal roof. If you want to carry two W kayaks it is just as easy, you tie them vertically to each other. Two straps around it all, and it sits well on the roof rack.
