How To Rig A Fishing Kayak


We’ve had so many questions recently about how to properly rig your fishing kayak.  I found a great video on how to do this. Even though these blokes are in England, they’re using a Hobie Mirage as their example and there really is a load of great advice. Hopefully this’ll answer all your questions.  If you have more, just leave a comment below and we’ll do our best to answer them for you.

We also took the time to transcribe (to the best of our ability!) the YouTube video for those of you who prefer reading or are deaf.  You don’t need to be able to hear to get out there on the water!  No excuses!  Get your kayak rigged up and get out there!  Hope you enjoy this video presentation…
