-“I have yet to try fly fishing but it is on my “to do list”. I use saltwater reels hoping to land stripers.
My primary use for my W500 kayak is ocean fishing. I usually do not venture out beyond a mile off shore.
I feel better sitting lower, and the seat modification works perfect. The bottom of the seat is even with the bottom of the structural “ribs” so there is no added drag.
Note the long, articulated steering handle extension. The articulation makes it easier to steer from a distance, and when the angler is standing up.
The propeller being located in the front prevents using it in shallow water, since it won’t bounce up if it hits the bottom, or an underwater obstacle.
