This is a kayaking book with a difference. The inspiration for the journey, from Sweden to the Black Sea, via the Baltic and rivers of eastern Europe, came somewhere in Kazakhstan when David Grant, while travelling with his wife and children in a horse-drawn caravan, was reading a translation of the fictitious Viking saga Rde Orm, or Red Serpent, A life-long interest in things Viking, coupled with a wish to experience a solo expedition on a shoe-string budget, dictated that the authors longship should actually be a kayak. The route would follow approximately that of Rde Orms vessel but continue on to the Black Sea and possibly further. The result was a fascinating journey through the waters of the Swedish Archipelago, across the Baltic to the island of Gotland and on to Riga in Latvia, where the river travel began. Up the Daugava-Dvina and its tributary the Ulla, through the disused and decaying Verebki canal and across the watershed, then down the Berezina and Dneiper, to emerge into the Black Sea.

The Vikings maintain their grip on our imagination, but their image is too often distorted by myth. It is true that they pillaged, looted, and enslaved. But they also settled peacefully and traveled far from their homelands in swift and sturdy ships to explore. The Age of the Vikings tells the full story of this exciting period in history. Drawing on a wealth of written, visual, and archaeological evidence, Anders Winroth captures the innovation and pure daring of the Vikings without glossing over their destructive heritage. He not only explains the Viking attacks, but also looks at Viking endeavors in commerce, politics, discovery, and colonization, and reveals how Viking arts, literature, and religious thought evolved in ways unequaled in the rest of Europe. The Age of the Vikings sheds new light on the complex society, culture, and legacy of these legendary seafarers.

Lowrance kayak transducer mount (Scupper Hole Mount) For Fishfinders.Fishing from a kayak is not exactly new. Indeed, it can be traced back a very long way. It’s fair to say, however, that the kayak trend in contemporary angling circles, is enjoying a prolific uptake that, interestingly, seems to have occurred in concert with the unprecedented surge in Lure fishing, not to mention the appearance of the incredible kayaks now available on the market. While trying to ascertain why kayak fishing has gained such popularity might be tricky, it’s not hard to see that the technique has become a category of fishing in its own right. Evidence for this is provided by the sheer volume of product that is targeted specifically at the kayak angler. The fishfinder is just one of those products.Mounting a fish finder on your kayak has, traditionally, been a messy affair. Duct tape, gaff tape, messy adhesives and counter intuitive holes, led Lowrance to come up with a solution for how to mount a transducer in a kayak that would allow for seamless installation and operation of portable fish finders. The mount was the key and the boffins at Lowrance saw tremendous potential in the Scupper holes. Essentially, all you do is select the most appropriate scupper hole on your kayak, and fit it through that scupper hole.The only tool you will need is a set of pliers, or strong scissors. The best scupper hole will be determined by the position you like to mount the head. The mount will fit most sit-on-top kayaks and is very affordable. You can leave the mount in situ or remove it after each session. The Lowrance Transducer Scupper Mount System ensures maximum Sonar-signal Sensitivity and is a must have for all kayak fishing enthusiasts with a fish finder.
