My companion HALIBUT
An inflatable fishing kayak that brings a new dimension to fishing. Now you can enjoy fishing even in poorly accessible and remote locations. German fisherwoman Babs Kijewski tests it for long term, how is she satisfied?
“I have been testing the inflatable kayka HALIBUT since one year. It has become a faithful companion on my fishing trips around the world. My kayak has been in Canada twice, a lot of times in Florida, Germany, France, Netherlands, Spain and on Canary Islands,” says German fisherwoman Babs Kijewski.
“In some waters, it is difficult to catch big fishes. Motorboats often scare away the fish. Also the fishing in very flat areas is now possible. The extra large fishes are super shy and difficult to catch. If they hear engine noise, they are gone. I lay down my montages with my kayak. It is super quite! And it works,” praisesb Babs.
Absolute pluses for me:
- Small pack size, perfect to take it on the car or plane
- You need no big storage area
- It is super fast quick to set up
- Very robust material, very good quality
- Silently and fast on the water
- Flexible in different kind of fishing (Trolling, Driftfishing, Spinfishing, bring out the montages for Carp or Catfish)
“It comes always with me, when I go catfish fishing in France. We are inseparable couple,” adds Babs with smile on her lips.

At sea, after lockdown
Yesterday's kayaking trip was really special for us; not only was it the first trip of 2020, but it was also a step towards getting back to "normal" life.
Us and our kayaking holidays with Gumotex
My name is Davide de Feo and I am a 38 years old computer engineer from Genoa (Liguria - Italy) with a passion for caving, climbing and photography. In September 2004 I went on a climbing holiday to Kalymnos, a small Greek island. Here I tried kayaking for the first time and was amazed.
The RUSH kayak from Gumotex scored at the Paddle Expo in Nuremberg
The new kayak RUSH from Gumotex company in Breclav won the title of Product of the Year in the category of recreational products at the largest European paddling fair Paddle Expo. The kayak impressed the jury and the visitors of the contracting fair above all with the production technology used, the construction ensuring perfect stability, first-class riding characteristics, versatility of use and, last but not least, environmental friendliness. After last year's victory of the THAYA kayak at the same fair, this repeat victory in the prestigious competition is a huge success for the Czech company.
