The Assault Hand Paddle from Backwater Paddle Company is going to make kayak fishing a whole lot easier. It's the perfect paddle when you need to move just a few feet or adjust the position your boat while holding still holding on to your rod. The Assault paddle is a must-have for fishing in windy conditions to keep your boat facing the right direction. It's lightweight and has a slim profile so it's easy to tuck next to your seat or at your feet to keep it handy. The hook is useful for grabbing on to the dock to pull yourself in or for retrieving your line. You can use the serrated edge of the paddle to push off shore or any tree roots you find yourself up against. This handy paddle has a UV protective coating, a wrist leash, and it floats! You can also keep it in a hatch to use as an emergency paddle. This is a well-designed paddle that you'll end up reaching for over and over again.

This works great. Hooked up to a paddle leash it's perfect for little position adjustments around the mangroves without letting go of your fly rod, even while playing a fish. As usual the ACK folks are friendly informative and ship promptly. I can't imagine better service anywhere.
Have had a chance to use this paddle half a dozen times now and I like it. Quietly move around or backwards then fishing. A must have for Hobie mirage kayaks—truth is it is the only paddle you need with the Mirage Drive on most water.
