Standing in Straight Edge

Post by Gus3836 » Fri Feb 12, 2016 10:03 am

Can you standup in the straight edge angler? It would be better for fly casting. Just got my angler in January caught a nice Schnook in Tarpon Bay. Now that were back home in Ohio I need to wait till warm weather to practice in it for stability. I would like to stand to fly cast. Have photos not good ones was so excited about catching my first salt water fish on my own (no guide) that I didn't get the whole fish in.

Although not recommended by Advanced Elements, people do stand in the kayak by placing their feet on each side of the floor, tucked under the side tube, to brace themselves. Because the floor is somewhat rounded, if you stood on it, the kayak may roll side to side eventually knocking you out of the kayak.

To add more stability for standing, you could also get Scotty's No. 302 Kayak Stabilizers and a set of No. 242 Rail Mount Adapters and set it all up on the "arm" parts of the Accessory Frame on the Angler. Here's Scotty's web link:
