What is the most effective fishing kayak? Well, it depends. Kayaks come in many varieties and can have a number of differences - the fact of the matter is, what is best depends on individual preference and needs. You need to ask yourself some questions: Where, and how usually, will I be fishing? How much am I going to spend? After buying it, will I even intend to look at things again after sitting in it and paddling for several hours? Let's go over some aspects of a fishing kayak:

Kayaks can be a rigid hull or inflatable; rigid kayaks are generally made of polyethylene, while inflatables are made of a PVC material. The majority of people choose a rigid hull, as they are more stable and more resistant to damage. Inflatable kayaks have their advantages, however: they are much lighter and therefore easier to move (an inflatable kayak is often about the size of a traveling bag when deflated). Inflatable kayaks often come with a pump of some sort, so they can be easily moved to the water and inflated at arrival.

While fishing, you occasionally might intend to stay where you are, rather than go with the current or wind. To do that, you will need an anchor. It is very important when anchoring a kayak to always secure the anchor to the kayak at the very front or very back - if you attach the anchor line to the side, the current may cause the kayak to flip over. Unfortunately, it is very difficult, if not outright dangerous, to reach the very front or very back of a kayak from the cockpit. To solve this, fishing kayaks have a pulley system on the sides, consisting of either one pulley across the entire length of the kayak, or two separate ones for the front and the back. This allows you to tie the anchor line at the side of the kayak, where you can reach, then move the secured point to either the front or back of the hull.

I'm lucky enough to have access to a couple of very hot, dry rooms at my workplace. So it only takes 24 Hr to get my bread slices bone dry. In the house, this may take many days. You could always pop them onto a tray and keep them in the airing cupboard.

I also have access to colanders and sieves. Again if you don't, then add the water a little at a time, mixing carefully, until you achieve the right consistency. This can be done at the waterside very easily.

What is the right consistency? Well that's down to trial and error. But I would say that on entering the water, you want the mash to start separating quickly. If you are fishing in faster water or it's bitterly cold, then you can make it just a little stiffer, so that it starts to break down nearer the bottom, which is where the chub are likely to intend to feed in serious sub-zero conditions.
