There is now a wide range of specially designed fishing kayaks that have evolved from the sit on top kayaks. These come with added features such as rod holders, rail systems, modular pods and much more. Kayak fishing has become a hugely popular sport. Kayaks can be purchased inexpensively and have very little maintenance costs, opening the sport up to a range of people. Carrying, launching and lifting these kayaks is quick and easy allowing you to get afloat faster. Keen anglers are able to reach hidden bays and shallower waters from a fishing kayak giving more scope than fishing from the shore.
