In an effort to maintain his political incorrectness, Mark ‘Fishkiller’ Pearson twists the knife again, and instinctively ducks for cover beneath the splintered remains of his kayak.
In response to the interesting and informative Hand Signals for Sea Kayakers in Issue 41 of NSW Sea Kayaker, Fishkiller offers the following ‘useful’ hand signals that he considers more appropriate to the kayaking needs of NSWSKC paddlers.
Six years of Club membership have taken their toll on Fishkiller’s fragile mental ecosystem, and he is now accepting donations for his extended stay in the specially prepared NSWSKC Rubber Room.
