You've got to be very carefull with the cold water. I usually don't start yakking until the water temps are in the high 50's. Someday, when I can afford it, I want to get a nice drysuit and fish the whole season(early Spring till December).

it would only take you to die once from hypothermia to learn your lesson..of course I don't wish you any harm..it is ur choice
I also went a good # of yrs w/o wearing one.. as I get older and find that I'm still capable of stupid stuff I try to help lessen some odds were possible.. safe season to all

If that guy went over he wouldn't even be able to flip his kayak back over or just get on top of it.

The yak would have blown away while he was goin under in shock! It was white cappin and REALLY cold! Of all the gear he didn't have, it would have been the NO leash that got him that day, then the hypothermia and no PFD! A leash is smart in high wind, solo, in winter, sorry! Wind chill was in the teens! Not Prudent, don't want to start a pissin match, but he was a gonner. Not to mention you have to have a PFD and a whistle to be legal!:please: For REEL For REEL :fighting:

there has been many test.. not saying its right but he won't freeze right up.. he has a few min to get under control and stop from going into shock then get together.. but once out fo water he is in trouble in a few min.. people like that shouldn't even be on a yak in the winter.. it will only take them one time to fall in to learn but he might not make it to the next time.
