I am retrofitting my Bighorn frame to fish and was wondering what the pros and cons of thigh hooks and leans bars?
That's pretty much the jist of it.Cons: gets in the way.
Pros: makes it easier to stand up while casting or spotting.
If you have a good floor and are smooth with the oars, you don't really need a thigh bar. If you are taking older fisherman/woman a thigh bar is a good thing.
