How To:  Standing and Kayak Fishing Photograph by Mark Watanabe
I’ve wanted to write an article on the topic of standing and fishing while kayak fishing for some time now.  I talk to so many people that either struggle with this task or have just never tried.

Obviously I recommend trying this in a pool or in still water without your gear so that you can safely and easily do a re-entry.  I’m of the school of thought that you certainly do not need to stand and fish in your kayak; in fact some of our most regarded kayak anglers never stand.  I just feel like it’s more enjoyable and easier to cast and pitch from this position.

There are so many new kayak models on the market that are designed to allow you to stand and fish.   There is the NuCanoe, Diablo, KC Kayak, and Native Ultimate, just to name a few.

Check out the video below for my demonstration on the mechanics of standing and fishing from your kayak.

Great...Never though of using a board and roller to simulate a Kayak.

Great job Adam. I didn't know you were so graceful (that will never be said about me). But you did give me a much better understanding of how to balance in my yak. Thanks! :lol:
