There is a lot of different things to consider when getting started with kayak fishing. Luckily Gary Robinson from has given us permission to share his ‘Beginner’s Series’ that he penned for Sea Angler magazine. The Beginner’s Series covers everything from gear to kit to safety and almost everything in between. This fantastic resource should have something relevant to all levels of kayak angler.

Gear and kit is going to be personal to each individual and in this section we take a look at some ‘must haves’ such as kayaks, paddles and PFD’s as well as optional extras like stoves and kettles! Safety is of paramount importance and many different aspects of keeping safe on the water will be looked at including appropriate clothing, signalling equipment and understanding tides.
