Stand Up Fly Fishing Kayak Review, by Glynn Gantenbein, Texas

I’ve been a fly fisherman for twenty years, and I’ve fished around the world.
For me, being able to fish out of a W kayak is the realization of a dream to be both absolutely mobile and stable at the same time – to walk on water…
I’m seventy years old, and my sense of balance is impaired since I had a serious ear infection several years ago. I also have back problems that prevent me from fishing out of conventional kayaks.
Me and my son sold our sit-in fishing kayaks, and ordered W kayaks from Wavewalk.
After I got my W500, I took it for a test ride in a creek behind my house.
Within less than half an hour, I stood up and paddled it standing without feeling any problem.

    I really like the wire basket between the hulls! Where did you find that? Great idea with a lot of utility!

    Looks like a great boat I love paddling but since I have gotten older I am more concerned about going in the DRINK not as much fun unless I am ready for it.
