Family affair fun !!!
No we were not fishing just having fun at the Lake (Chautauqua) tonight. The SOT's are great for the kids ages 9 & 11. They can swim off them and get right back in and paddle easy. I put my 9 year old (Nicole) up front in the tandem and she was all grins. My wife and son took the Capers. Nice to have yaks for all, a bonus from guiding.
My wife and I took the tandem for a quick paddle................boy, it really sails with two and paddles easy. Plenty of room to flyfish two from if the stern person backcasts for safety. Or sits sideways and casts the other way. For guiding I just paddle from the stern and don't cast/fish anyways but you could easy.
They were safer and more fun than the sit ins were for the kids.
