What an adventure !
Slowly but surely the Scottish kayaking group is growing in size .This time the venue is loch Etive at NIGHT !!..8 off us met up at Taynuilt ,And prepared a camp..Myself and Gerry arrived late ..it was well dark ..We paddle towards our friends and the scene was out of this world !It was so cold but the moon lit and super flat calm Loch Etive was unimaginable .Like true Adventurers we paddle towards those fish cages ,a mile or so out ..At that time we meet Simon ..Simon is the man who organise the trips ..(cheers man !you're doing a great job)..Already he bagged a 10 lb ling !Close to the cages G got caught on some ropes,and trying to pull his tackle back went the full 360 !No panic !it is cold and black ,the man turn his yak and climb back on it !Brilliant !Anyway ..YOU guys out there who wants to go kayaking ,come and join us ..it is absolutly fantastic..The Great outdoors ..when G turned over ,he lost his best rod !the next morning we woke up and noticed a pirk hanging on the side of his yak .I jump on my yak and followed 300 or so yards out holding on his line and BINGO ,Retrived his rod and reel !happy days !Later on that day I stayed on and caught my best ever spurdog ....Come along guys !Give this a try !Nicolas

nice, read simons last night pity you had your camera on a high ISO for the night shot that would have been a great wee image without the noise and bit of camera shake. Love the spurry there and the rod and reel in the water over night was very lucky to get that back.

Those who worry about not being able to swim really shouldn't... you cannot sink if you fall in, and you are going to be right beside the kayak if you do fall and it is easy to get back in.

Basically, you do not need to be able to swim a single stroke to be safe. I have not tipped the kayak in 7-8 trips out, other than a deliberate tip to practice getting back in!

Good wee trip but I was cold, need some warmer socks.
