A Kayakfisherman in Ireland

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

Gary Robinson is an all round angler with a deep interest in all things aquatic. Five years ago Gary purchased a sit on kayak purely to go paddling then had a eureka moment, with a bit of modification one could fish off this, the possibilities are endless. Studying for a marine biology degree in Galway has expanded Gary’s knowledge of the marine and enabled him to try new waters atop his trusty kayak. Interested now in highlighting Irish kayak angling Gary has created the A Kayak Fisherman in Ireland website, detailing his own personal experience of this increasingly popular hybrid of boat fishing.

To date having boated (kayaked maybe?) a range of sea fish from locations as diverse as the Beara Peninsula, Killary Harbour, and the exposed north Wicklow coastline where Gary targeted successfully a specimen forty pound plus tope, the intrepid kayaker has earmarked a twenty pound Lough Corrib pike as his autumn/winter project.
