Kayak fisherman

This week’s Friendly Friday challenge theme is ‘Color Harmonies.’ See more responses here.

I like the colors in this photo of a kayak fisherman, with his red hat and yellow kayak. He has a fairly typical setup, with two or three rods attached in one way or another. He’ll have some bait in the kayak and probably a few beverages and snacks.

I was surprised to see him passing so close, but figured that he’d seen me and was being careful. In the end, I was glad I stopped to take this photo because just after I started swimming again, a large lure and hook passed in front of me on his unseen trailing line. Had I not stopped I’d probably have been hooked, reeled in, gutted, and barbecued. Not a bad way to go, really, I guess.

    Umm. Is Sunday Stills doing a colour harmony challenge as well as Friendly Friday, Graham? I usually check to see if there is a clash on reader but didn’t pick this one up.
    Your photo is gloriously harmonious in terms of colours, though! That deep ocean blue looks fantastic against the bright yellow kayak. I am glad that you didn’t get reeled in! Then I wouldn’t have got to see this fantastic photo. What a set up he has got. This comes from someone who has just sourced a kayak to try in her retirement!

      Thanks for pointing that out. That’s the second time I’ve done that. I must be more careful. I have a line of text that I often copy and paste and I’m supposed to change which challenge it is. Enjoy your kayak. I’ve done a bit of kayaking and I enjoy it, but it doesn’t agree with my back.

          Yes, depending on the kayak. The open top kayaks are a bit easier because I can bend my knees, but I find most of them get uncomfortable for me too quickly to make them worth my while/
