Interested in kayak fishing but live in an apartment without storage?  Want to kayak in Alaska but don’t want to rent one when you get up there?  Ever been driving down the road and pass that perfect spot to fish and not have your kayak strapped to the roof?  If you answered yes to any of these questions then I have one word for you FOLBOT.


The thought of having my yak stored in the trunk ready for that perfect stream passed along the road seemed too good to be true! Folbot’s compact folding design allows you to store and carry you kayak virtually anywhere.  All Folbot kayaks are lightweight and easily assembled the largest model can carry up to 600lbs and folds down into a convenient bag weighing just 62lbs.

The Edisto is YakAngler’s number one pick from Folbot’s diverse model lineup.  It’s the most versatile boat Folbot makes period. In its basic form it has an open cockpit with room for kids, dog or gear. Two optional EXP packages, with a mini deck or full deck, allow for paddling in more adventurous conditions. The Fish 'n Photo package, with its outrigger system, converts the Edisto into an ultra-stable platform from which to stand and cast or shoot award winning photos. Assembly is a breeze because all cross frames are accessible, and conversion from one configuration to the next is also a snap. The Edisto comes standard with one paddle, one seat, foot pegs and carrying bags.  www.folbot.com
