Cataract Oars has been in the business of rafting and drift-boat accessories for years, but instead of focusing solely on the river, the designers turned their eyes to the world of kick boats and pontoons when they created the Kickboat Oar Shaft. This strong, lightweight paddle uses a multi-component composite shaft to deliver performance that flexes and rebounds like wood, but without the extra weight or need for maintenance. Cataract even included its tightly braided rope wrap around the shaft to quiet it against the boat on fishing days and protect the shaft when you dig deep and paddle hard. The end of the handle is notched, which lets you place your thumb in the notch so you can tell the orientation of the oar without taking your eyes off the line ahead of you.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
