A thorough introduction to an increasingly popular fishing sport.

Did you know that kayak fishing has shot up in popularity over the past few years? Americans take more than 38 million kayak fishing trips every year. While most outdoors enthusiasts think of kayaks simply as boats, there are many great reasons to take up fishing from a kayak. A kayak is cheaper to maintain than a larger fishing boat; it can be launched from almost anywhere and piloted by almost anyone; and kayakers can access places larger boats can’t, opening up new fishing spots. So join in on the fun with The Ultimate Guide to Kayak Fishing.

Joel Spring guides readers through choosing a kayak from the various types, transporting it, and outfitting it with the absolute necessities. He covers vital safety information, from life-preservers and waterproof cell-phone cases to boat traffic and weather concerns. Finally, he offers key insights for a successful kayak fishing experience. Topics covered include:

Standing to fish
Casting under brush and trees
Fishing in the wind
Bait, casting, fly, and night fishing tips, tactics, and techniques
Landing fish in a kayak
And much more!

Spring finally offers further advice on kayak maintenance as well as making kayak fishing a friend and family event. Pick up a copy of The Ultimate Guide to Kayak Fishing for a complete introduction to this great, less-known fishing sport.
