Default Paddling a new yak....

I just bought my first yak, a Perception Striker 11.5.I read reviews, watched youtube videos, and went with the Striker. It came with an anchor and a Scotty rod holder. I bought an aftermarket seat, and I'm getting it rigged and set up this weekend. I have a couple of life jackets with my boat that I can use until I can regroup financially and get a paddlers vest.
What do you paddlers recommend for a fishing/paddling vest?

Congrats on the purchase- It will be hard to go back to "regular" fishing now. I recently joined the ranks a few months ago and it opened up new places I couldn't even think about going before. I got this one on sale a few months back, but I barely notice I have it on while on the river, and can keep some essential gear close. Bonus, I use when I wade up at the dam. https://www.rei.com/product/751458/s...-fisherman-pfd

I love my NRS Chinook! Has a high back for kayak seats, plenty of pockets and a built in bungee for your nippers!

It certainly changed my life. As for a vest. Look at the ExtraSport EON Angler.
