Kayak Fishing Elders Troubles

One of our senses, balance, is required for using most fishing kayaks. However, it is often negatively affected by medical purposes or old age. The implications for kayak fishing are clear – We either need to fish from a more stable kayak, or quit kayak fishing altogether. An impaired sense of balance increases the risk of the angler capsizing their kayak, and therefore is a safety hazard.
