Either Gravity is getting stronger, or I’m getting weaker. As the years pile on me, my upper body strength is dwindling. Of course there are ways to combat this which, no matter which method you choose (gym, bags of sugar or yoga), take time. Time I could be fishing. So I have commandeered my spouses NRS Inflatable SUP to see if these fishy SUP people on the “world wide web” are really onto something. I haven’t yet found the perfect water to really give a fair try at casting (I really want to use it on rivers), but I can tell you this; Loading and unloading off of my no frills Thule base rack…BUTTER! Oh my not aching back! I’ll assess its real functionality over the next 2 months, when my spouse is not putting it to use for birding.
