Hi there

I want to fish with a Kayak both river and sea fishing. Is there a kayak that I can buy for both and what is a good price for one? Thanks

A good sea kayak will work fine on rivers. It may not be as agile as a purpose made one but it will be safe and functional.

A good river kayak may be a death trap at sea.

I'd go for a sea kayak most suited to the areas I would normally be fishing and use it for river trips.
