Take The Bait

The Nehu, or Hawaiian Anchovy, was a bait fish used to catch Tuna in the days of hook and pole commercial fishing in Hawaii.  The lure of the Nehu is its thin, sleek blade.  It enters the water with stealth and power that allows you to stay ahead of those big fish. Made in the USA.

    Use the chart to help you determine what length paddle might be best for you. The following are some things to take into consideration:

    1. If you have broader than average shoulders, go to the high end of the range.
    2. If you have a longer torso than average for your height, go to the high end of the range.
    3. When ordering a paddle to be used with a one or two person canoe, go to the middle or low end of the range. (Most people use a shorter paddle in a one person versus a six-person canoe.)
    4. Remember, these are general guidelines so please take into account your personal preferences

    1. LOVE IT
      Overall Rating

      I absolutely loved it the first time I used it. Worked like a charm on our 15k marathon - light, catches well, not wobbly in the water and very durable. Would highly recommend Nehu!!

    2. Great paddle with smooth entry and solid feel!!!
      Overall Rating

      Got this paddle for use on my OC-1. I love it. It cuts into the water so smoothly then grabs effortlessly. Solid feel and no wobble. I have the white tapa pattern which seems to attract honu when resting over a reef. Just leave the paddle in the water and they come up to see what it is. Sweet!!!

      I love the Nehu. It's light, 'grabs' nicely, and was a pleasure to use during our last race when I stroked. I would certainly recommend this paddle to anyone looking for a well balanced paddle.

    4. My favorite oc paddle
      Overall Rating

      Instantly liked the way the paddle felt when I first tried it. Has a nice clean catch and release, and offers the perfect amount of surface volume for maximum power output. It's my go to paddle for everything really. If you're looking for the best all around paddle, I highly recommend the nehu

    5. Never Let me Down
      Overall Rating

      This was my first paddle purchase. I bought it because I decided to "get serious" with my paddling and I didn't want a paddle that had too wide or too small of a blade face. I bought it about two years ago and it has been very good to me. This paddle is very versatile. I have used it for both sprint and distance races while sitting various seats, but mainly one (stroker). It catches nicely and is very light, which helps me apply more power and speed to my stroke. Love it!
