Mmm! doesn't look like the best choice of things to do. Wouldn't have been any better coming back in afterwards.

How long did it take him to recover the rods afterwards?

Amazingly the rod appeared to stay attached throughout, his mate had a huge landing net which had equal survival skills. Needless to say they didn't make past the break.

For those unacquainted with kayak fishing it's a lot like Buddhism, although rather than making merit by doing good deeds, you build up a store of good luck by the regular sacrifice of high ticket fishing gear, Neptune particularly appreciates fish finders and associated electronics.

You haven't lived until you have done a backward somersault in the surf
