Fishing just got that much easier! The Backwater Assault Hand Paddle is perfect if you need to adjust the position of your boat or move just a few feet without releasing your rod. This is ideal for windy conditions so you can keep your vessel in the right direction. At just under 23 inches and weighing less than a pound, its portable size and weight make it a breeze to store on board.

    This thing is awesome! In the Yak world you know learning to effectively fumble with multiple things at once is key. This helps with that in many ways. For example, you’re hooked up on a fish, the current is spinning you, you’re trying to hold your rod and keep the line tight. This paddle is light to grab with one hand while other is holding rod, and help you get back in line to your catch. Next instance, your line gets hooked on a mangrove root, and you just happen to be a hair too far to grab your line without going in the drink. You grab this paddle, and use hook end to grab line out. This thing is so versatile. I also use it to scrape barnacles for sheepshead chum, or grab a rope throw to pull it around pylon. If you’ve got a yak, you need this. Save yourself from many hassles, and at least make it appear you’re better than you are as a yak angler. Hope this helped someone make the decision to get one of these, and look forward to the thank you, and “man, you were so right. I needed this”.
