If you love kayaking and you love fishing, you'd probably love some light reading material. There are plenty of books and magazines and websites about kayaking - there are also plenty out there about fishing. But sometimes you need something that will really scratch that itch, you know?
To that end, I've compiled a list of kayak angling websites and blogs that I visit most frequently. There are more out there, I've no doubt, but these are the top ones that I know of. If you know of a good website that I haven't listed, let me know!
As well as giving you the websites themselves, I've also selected a few of their choicest articles to get you started. I'm sure you'll find something that interests you in this selection.
This website isn't purely a blog; it's a big, authoritative website all about kayaking, fishing and kayak fishing. They have reviews, how-tos, recipes and, bizarrely, a section devoted to scantily clad ladies posing with crabs. And fish. Well, I like scantily clad ladies, and fish so... I guess you can't go wrong?
A good, full website with lots of information to digest. The blog is a bit spare, but there is a lot of other stuff there to keep you interested.
Anglers Afloat is a UK based fishing website and community. As well as news about tournaments you can follow their projects on there, such as their upgrades to an Ocean Kayak Prowler 13. They also have a forum if you care to follow it.
Another UK based kayak fishing website with a forum. They have some great reviews of gear and kayaks, as well as safety tips for newcomers to the sport. The website has been going for quite a long time now and is a good resource even for those who are not in the UK. Perhaps the strongest message on the site is this one
The Southern Kayak Fishing website and magazine is a good multimedia resource. Their newsletter is worth signing up for, but the blog is a bit sparse. However, there are a few gems on there.
Kayak Fishing Blog have their own YouTube channel, which you can find here. They have lots of product recommendations too, from fishing reels to mobile phone apps.
Although this blog is no longer active, it's still a good read - the good thing about it no longer being update is that you can definitively get to the end! Again, based in the UK (the Yorkshire coast, in fact), he writes good stuff and has really nice photos to go with his posts too. Check this one out.
Robos fishing website is a complete resource with fishing tips, launch sites (in the UK), and a gallery of his catches and more. Have a look at some of these beasts - wow!
Unfortunately, it's not often updated, but another website you can read through for the gems and marvel at the photos.
UK based, Cornwall this time - a great blog that is regularly updated. Liam Faisey, the webmaster, is a young angler with a few years of experience but plenty to show for it and a clear passion. He lists all the gear he used and the modifications made to his gear - really good tips and tricks to be found here. Indeed, everything he does comes with a pretty much complete guide on how to do it yourself.
Here's his most recent article (as I write this) - catching a porbeagle shark from a kayak.
I hope this list has been interesting and useful to you - as always, tight lines!
