Kayaks have boomed in Tasmania-especially over the last year, but with our fickle weather we do need to keep comfortable in a variety of conditions. John Pollard looks at what you need.
There are many rivers in Tasmania that are just waiting to be explored using a canoe or kayak. These let you fish those inaccessible parts of rivers that are heavily overgrown and too deep to wade. Some of these sections have had little or no angling pressure and can hold some big fish.
Kayaks provide a great fishing platform for the recreational angler. They allow you to fish waters that would be impossible to access from either the shore or a larger boat. They are also very easy to transport and handle to the water. With more and more kayaks appearing on the market, the kayaking angler is now faced with a bewildering choice of boats. Following are a few pointers that should help you choose a boat that meets your needs and provides years of enjoyable fishing.
We are lucky in Tassie to be surrounded by water and with so many lakes and river systems and there are endless opportunities for us keen anglers.
With skyrocketing fuel costs, one of the most affordable and perhaps the most enjoyable way to access these waters is by canoe or kayak. Now I am a small boat owner myself, but the trusty kayak still gets as much, if not more use than the tinny.
