|It's time to up my paddling game.|
Recently I ordered a new kayak for my personal fleet. It's not because I really need one. Nor is it because my Slayer Propel or Versaboard are worn out or need replacing. I decided to order a new boat to help me become a better kayak angler, actually I ordered it to become a better kayaker.
Now don't get me wrong I love pedaling my Slayer Propel. It's a great boat that's designed to excel in a variety of conditions. In fact it may be to GOOD. Over the last few years I've come to realize that although I have gotten much better at catching fish from a kayak. My actual paddling skills haven't improved at all. They haven't needed to because my choice of boat allows me to go out in conditions that are way past my ability.

|See I do know how to paddle. Of course I only do it when I'm in shallow water.|
