" For veteran or newbie, this is the ultimate 'yak fishing guide, written by a talented guy with plenty of enthusiasm and know-how. The Complete Kayak Fisherman is chock-full of proven, time-tested tips. If you fish from a kayak, or want to try, this is the best information you'll find anywhere - period . "
- Pete Barrett , Former Executive Editor, The Fisherman A revolutionary new technique has already begun to have an influence on anglers everywhere: kayak fishing. Kayaks enable fishermen to go into virtually any fishing location in near-total silence, and to be completely mobile and have all gear at hand. Previously unreachable waters are now able to be fished-and the results are spectacular.

Here is a thorough guide to this new breed of angling, for both fresh and saltwater fishermen. Choosing a kayak, outfitting the craft with rod-holders, electronics, storage, anchoring systems, and more, plus techniques for fighting fish from the kayak and full safety guidelines are all covered in this book.

Ric Burnley is a widely published outdoors writer. He lives in Virginia Beach, VA.
