I picked up a Coleman Scanoe this winter. I haven’t had it in the water yet, but I’m hoping to put in a rowing station and make try sight style fly fishing from it.
I usually fish from one of several recreational kayaks - but not standing.
Any experiences? It looks wide and flat with tracking channels, so I’m thinking that I won’t be going *** over tea-kettle on a hook set if I stand. Probably won’t be standing on a drift in a river, just anchored or in still water until I get either real comfortable or stupid.
Any comments, suggestions, recommendations, or otherwise?
They charge money for those things Look at my post again, it’s past tense (plus like 8 months old!). I already HAVE the Scanoe. So, while there’s no reason not to check out the site, there’s no reason TO check it out either. Sorry, just the way it is.
When I stand and fish I normally keep my feet wide apart , stay near the widest part of the canoe and try to avoid sudden moves. I have an OT Disco 158 and a Dagger Legend 16 and I also regularly paddle them standing with a 9’ double blade paddle. I have found that this really helps your balance.
