A local guy in MSBA taught me, just another addiction...I have only done a couple of dozen so far. It is only my first year I can say all of the rods I use (8) are ones I have wrapped. It really is a great feeling to catch on a rod you built for yourself..

The rod on the left side looks like it could get pulled out by a fish, or possible bounce out in rough water. Have you had any problems or do you lash them into yak?

I have never talked to anyone who fished from a yak,what's it like when you have a good size fish on? do you struggle to keep from tipping over?

Bill, it's awesome. You get towed around on a little Nantucket sleighride! Never had the concern about tipping, more concerned about how far the fish would take me! Farthest I figure I got taken was almost two miles by a 47" horse! Better with rudder, especially if they want to take you into the rocks....
