Rudder or none/ sitin vs siton

Hello Teflon:

I have had a SOT (Necky Dolphin) for ten years and it is my favorite to fish with. I wear waders when the water is cold. It is very stable and sea worthy. I have a rudder and JIMW is can hang up on a rudder but I would not buy a kayak without one. When a big wind kicks up in the afternoon it is nice to have a rudder. Also when you are trying to make a drift over a certain area, a rudder is invaluable especially if both arms/hands are being used for fly casting. A rudder helps you keep the kayak over a fishy spot longer.

good luck
