Chris Castro from Next Level Fishing - Kayak Fishing TV shared this vid with us regarding mandatory pfd usage. He is preaching to the choir. I am too. Figured best approach is to just share our chat and show the vid.  Castro's got a bunch more with some great fishing. Check out his channel!

Thanks Chris!  My sentiments exactly.  I chastise EVERY time when I see a kayaker with rods and reels not wearing a pfd.  Often get this response:  "I have a PFD! It's right here! (scowl),”  usually in the tankwell, or worse in the front hatch.  I will still speak up every time, it's my rule.

 I'm going to do a little reflective write up on the topic and include your video in the magazine, and of course post a leader on FB.  Early next week......Bushy

Awesome, I hear ya man. It really has become a huge problem at least here in Corpus. I actually just got back from the trip and of the 7 folks fishing the flats only 2 of us wore PFD equipment. All I can do is share an experience and hope it will change a few minds. I appreciate your efforts  looking forward to your article!
