    Hi Mate, Personally im not really into teams, but if there is anyway I can help through the site just say. I think Ocean kayaks are the best out there and I always do all I can to push people in their direction.

    I hope you don't mind me just plastering it all over here but I wanted it on most sites in one go.
    Thanks for your support, having fished Runswick, Scarborough and Flamborough I don't seem to do very well at the big fish meets.
    Always seem to wrangle a codling out when I visit my mum in Scarborough though.
    Cheers Keith

    Ian, I think I need more practice up north, that's what I tell the Mrs anyway. I had a couple of weeks in Scarborough and Runswick in the summer so at least I've got a few marks to try out now.

    Andy I reckon this team thing should interesting with a bit of friendly competition between manufacturers chosen fishermen.

    Looking forward to a bit of team rivalry next year ;D

    Hi Guys, I'm pretty keen to push the Ocean kayak Team through this website. If and when you post any updates or reports about the team could you please use the Tags section when starting a topic, as shown in the image below.

    Please insert the words - ocean kayak fishing team

    This will allow me to build up a list of topics about the team. This in turn is helpful for highlighting the topics and news to our site readers and of course search engines.

    At present we only have 2 topics relating to the team but Im sure as time progresses we can build up quite a list.

    If there are any other ways I can help then please just say, Im very keen to help you guys out.
