New to Kayaking and need help


Recommended Posts

Welcome to Anglers' Net Jessica. Someone should be along to give you information. About all I can manage is to say Hello.

 

Do you have a kayak or are you looking to buy one? Sea or fresh water and generally where you are located would probably help too.

Hi Jessica ;)

 

There's much good info contained in this forum if you use the search function.

 

A useful book, I'd recommend Andy Benham's Discover Kayak Fishing ISBN 1906095221

 

Assuming you are based in the UK then have a look here:

 

www.anglersafloat.co.uk

 

Several 'how to rig your Kayak' pages, SOT Kayak training courses backed by the AT and an excellent forum.

I am a newbie, Can any one suggest me as to how i can learn how to kayak. If any one can suggest me any good book or ways where i can take training from, would be thankful to you in this regard.

 

If you are just wanting to learn how to kayak then search online for canoeing clubs near to your location. They will be able to offer accredited courses covering paddling basics right up to safety training. Fishing kayaks are rigged differently to sport kayaks and usually have anchors which are not covered by sport kayak instructions, but the basics of paddling and safety are the same. Better to get a good grounding in the basics before venturing afloat with the additional factors of a rod and anchor.
