Re: Kayak fishing
I think it has got to be one of the most dangerouse styles of fishing ever concieved and if you are going to kit yourself out with safty in mind one of the most expensive .

kayaks are pretty safe, there a load of safety kit outhere, and safety is driven primarily by common sense & how much you wanna spend. Hand held marine vhf, blunt nosed knife, dry suit, pfd, flares & a first aid kit is about the minimum.....oh and a paddle leash.....
Its a great way to get to places the shore angler cant get to, in effect alot more safely. the type of yak depends on what style of fishing you do the most of...im a lure fisherman and fly fish from mine for bass aswell, I rarely bait fish, but do on the odd occassion for wrasse & mullet.
i have a a tarpon 120 (new shape) angler, a good all rounder. You dont need to be an athelete, but knowing how to swim is an advantage, as is the ability to get back on if you fall off without using your feet.....
