The Aquaglide BlackFoot HB Angler SL Inflatable Fishing kayak is one of the inflatable offerings from Aquaglide that is aimed specifically at anglers. It shares a lot of similarities with the Blackfoot XL Tandem, but it is obviously designed for solo anglers. It is also a smaller version of the Aquaglide Blackfoot XL, so if you need more space, then any of the other two would be more appropriate. However, the HB Angler SL actually provides more than enough room for a solo angler to fish in comfort.

It is 11'0” long and 37” wide, while the weight is only about 27 lbs and its carrying capacity is 400 lbs. It is a rugged kayak that is named after the Blackfoot River in Montana and it offers a surprising amount of versatility for an inflatable kayak. Through a combination of premium grade drop-stitching, as well as Aquaglide’s proprietary Powerstrip, the HB Angler SL offers plenty of stiffness for paddling and casting. It is also very durable, thanks to the commercial-grade Duratex hull construction. To ensure that you stay dry while paddling, this kayak also comes with a forward Splash-Guard.

When it comes to angling specific features, this kayak offers a higher seating position through the use of a mounted Rugged Core seat that is on a removable, raised platform. The seat has a high backrest and features integrated fishing-rod holders, fore and aft support straps, a mesh storage pocket and infinite adjustment system. In addition, the HB Angler SL has numerous Scotty mounts that are placed strategically around the kayak, which enables you to customize it to your heart’s content. Finally, it has a quick-release tracking fin system and sturdy, molded handles for easier boarding and transport.

Like most inflatable kayaks, this one is a little lacking when it comes to storage options. You do get plenty of leg space in the front and a small storage area behind the seat, but nothing like you would find on a rigid kayak that has hatches. However, it is very lightweight, easy to handle and offers a convenient way to get to out of reach fishing spots where a rigid kayak would be too cumbersome to carry.
