					Kayak Fishing >>
In the past several years kayak fishing has become a huge sport. People can be seen fishing from
kayaks on coastlines, rivers, bays and inlets around the world. Anglers enjoy the quiet access offered
by a kayak; they also appreciate the ease of transporting a kayak as opposed to a larger rowboat or
powerboat. Popularity has grown in part due to the ease of entry into the sport. Especially compared
to powerboats, fishing kayaks can be purchased inexpensively and have few maintenance costs. They
can be stored in small spaces and launched quickly. Most designs offer great stability and ease of
maneuverability. The new generation of twinhull (catamaran) kayaks recently introduced into the market
is stable enough to enable both paddling and fishing in the standing position. Anglers don’t have to
remain in a seated position for hours on end, and increased visibility from the standing position means
more fish. There are also kayaks propelled by flippers or propellers and a foot mechanism. These kayaks
offer hands-free fishing and all the benefits associated. Some kayak manufacturers offer special models
for fishing that are designed and accessorized for this sport, including specially-designed hatches,
built-in rod holders, catch bags and equipment mounts.

        Freedom Hawk > Freedom 12

        This ulimate fishing machine features a patented outrigger
        system that now gives the anglers a choice of 3 different
        positions. It paddles like a conventional kayak when the
        outriggers are stored in the first position. Position two offers
        additional stability when fishing or rigging a rod. The third
        position fully extends the outriggers into their patented
        “in-line position” for maximum efficiency when paddling,
        fishing or poling. Now you can stalk fish with less drag and
        water movement or gain additional paddling stability in more
        challenging paddling conditions.
        The standard equipment includes features like 2 watertight
        storage compartments, 2 flush mount rod holders, a casting
        brace and stabilizing bar, high back seat and many more.
        Available colours are yellow, blue, olive and sand.
