The past year has brought to the kayak angling community a wealth of new and exciting purchasing opportunities. From boats to apparel to rigging and stowing-oriented products, 2013 was a banner year for novel equipment offerings. In this, our holiday buying guide, we revisit many of these products, and pick from them our favorite and recommended items. We also pay homage to some old standbys. Whether bought as a gift or as items aimed at enhancing one's own personal arsenal, these picks are sure to please anglers targeting fish in all types of environments, be they lakes, rivers, inshore, or offshore waters.
