Adam talks with Morgan from Hobie Kayaks at Outdoor Retailer 2014 about the fishing-friendly updates to the 2015 "Outback". These updates address many of the questions viewers asked during our interview with Morgan at ICAST 2014.

Hobie added many specific fishing features anglers have been asking for, including the Vantage CT seat (Hobie's framed fishing kayak seat) and a flat standing area. These updates, along with the new H-Bar (adjustable casting bar) and H-Crate (fully-customizable storage crate), make the Outback a solid all-around fishing kayak.
