Honestly, the only two drawbacks to fly rodding out of these kayaks had to do with water and weather conditions more than design issues. If the chop weren’t as big (or if I was in the wider 14’ Pro Angler), I would’ve stood to make casting, retrieving, and setting the hook far easier. That said, I was more than comfortable casting from a seated position all day. Also, I knew going in that line management was going to be the biggest challenge. Even under reasonable conditions, fly line finds a way to get hung up on the smallest things, even itself. Again, if I were standing, this, too, would’ve been easier to manage.
