Hi all, normally go fishing off the beach but have been seriously looking into kayak fishing through youtube and forums etc, so at the ripe old age of 48(mid life crisis) have decided its time to have a go. only problem I'm having is what and where to buy! have looked on amazon and there's a yak for around 300, looks ok in the picture and gets 5 stars from most reviews, are there any decent shops in Hampshire area where I can go and have a look before I buy? as obviously I will need to buy all the safety gear as well.

Thanks in advance for your help

Joe happy

Hi Joe, My advice would be to talk to experienced yak anglers before making any purchase. They will be able to give you good advice as to what to start with and will probably offer to accompany you out until you have some experience. My local sea angling club (in Kent) has several yak anglers and they are always ready to share their knowledge.

I would love to fish from a kayak but, at 70 and with spinal column damage, it is now sadly out of my ability. But I wish you all the best with your kayak.

I would tend to agree with the Judge and I would also make a little list of the criteria which I would want a kayak to fit for my purposes. My daughter owns a small one which was quite cheap but in no way does it have the characteristics which would suit me for angling - no where to store fish caught or anywhere to securely fix a rod for example.

Thank you all for your replies and advice, I will check out the other forum thanks and carry on researching before I buy, as obviously initial set up wont be cheap and I need to make sure I'm happy and safe.

Thanks again
