Kayak Fishing is truly a growth sport. While it’s not new it’s certainly filled with innovation and it’s popularity seems to grow each years.
It allows people to get onto the water fishing in places a boat can’t go. Kayaks tend to be easier to store, transport and manoeuvre.
They are not without their risks, however. Like all water sports they carry an inherent risk of drowning and in places, such as Victoria, the very real risk of exposure. Particularly when immersed in cold water.
On the plus side, if care is taken to minimise risks. IF a PFD is worn, clothing suitable for immersion and thermal insulation and attention is paid to prevailing weather and water conditions – they can be absolutely awesome.
