THE KAYAK EDGE
A beneficial way to get more women involved in fishing
#1 PRACTICAL BENEFITS
“One of the reasons I chose fishing from a kayak is to keep it simple,” Stevenson says. “I fished out of a boat for a few years, but I enjoy the ease of throwing a kayak into the back of my truck and launching from any waterway.” In particular, she uses Google Maps to look for access points to fishing grounds that are otherwise inaccessible by motorboat. “Whether it’s the Great Lakes, or a small river on a back road, putting a kayak in the water is easier in many ways than a boat.” Access and ease of transport aside, Stevenson says other benefits of kayak fishing include the relative affordability of kayaks themselves, and the minimal maintenance and storage requirements.
