Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

1 Al­ways wear a life jacket – kayaks are very sta­ble, but never go afloat with­out one.

2 Take a small an­chor so you can stay put in a hotspot on a windy day.

3 If pos­si­ble, make your first kayak trip with some­one who is ex­pe­ri­enced, and don’t pick too daunt­ing a venue.

4 Get or­gan­ised – by plac­ing all the equip­ment you need close to hand you will fish bet­ter and en­joy it more.

5 Use a land­ing net with a short han­dle. You can ei­ther cut one down or buy a pur­pose-made model – a nor­mal length net is dif­fi­cult to wield.
