We had a fantastic day last Saturday, hosting the Inaugural JBK Fishing Kayak Demo Day. After a bit of bad weather leading into the weekend, Saturday turned into a beautiful, clear day and it was a pleasure to spend the time on the beach chatting to paddlers and fishos and seeing such a great range of specialist fishing kayaks being tried out. There were some favourites out there, particularly the new Wilderness Systems Thresher which is an open water fishing beast that can handle any conditions – a true hard core go anywhere fishing craft.

It was great to see paddlers standing up on the more stable kayaks and giving them a really good workout. Once again the range of Wilderness Systems Tarpon and Pescador were very popular given their light weight designs, ease of paddling and ability to handle anything from very shallow water to swell, wind and chop. The fit out of these boats is fantastic and provides everything necessary for the discerning angler.

It was also great to see a wide age range of paddlers and it shows how vibrant the sport of kayak fishing has become.

With the help and support of Wilderness Systems, JBK was able to offer some great deals and we are happy to keep these going for the next week so come in and see us soon if you are interested in fishing kayaks.

Thanks to everyone for their participation, and once again to Wilderness Systems for their support. Also congratulations to Jai who won the Fishing Accessory prize pack full of rod holders and other goodies , we are sure that these will be put to good use very soon.

Enjoy the pictures and we look forward to seeing more fishos come into the store and see what else is available in the wide world of fishing kayaks and accessories. We’re also always happy to see a pic of The Biggest Catch – so feel free to send them in to us!
