KASAI “Angler” Single Kayak
This angler version of our fast and stable Kasai sit-on-top kayak has all the features of its sibling as well as fishing-specific additions.
Two Rod Holders are positioned next to the hatches (8″ Day Hatch and 8″ Screw Hatch), behind the seat. Swing yourself around, with your legs hanging over the side, to access the hatches and to work with your rods.
Use the Deck Rails, which are positioned on either side of the seat, to customize your setup by attaching gadgets like cameras, GPS units, and fish finders. An Anchor Trolley is also installed on the right side of the kayak. Use this to position your anchor to keep the boat in the perfect location and angle.
Stretch your legs without making landfall by standing up on our Stand-up Platform. While you’re up, use the advantage of your height-above-water to view your surroundings. The platform is also stable enough for just about anyone to stand and cast from.
The large rear tankwell has Crate-Holding Indents to hug a crate. Attach tie-downs, straps or bungee cords to the Multifits positioned around the tankwell to secure your gear and prevent it being washed overboard by a rogue wave.
The Kasai Angler can carry a lot of weight. If you want to load a lot of gear or intend to catch some big fish and take them home, this boat is the ticket. The boat has good speed too, so it is great for covering longer distances and for trawling too.
HOW STABLE IS THE KASAI ANGLER CARRYING A LOAD?
|Ideal paddler weight||65-110 kg|
|Max. carrying capacity||150 kg|
Although children will love playing on the Kasai Angler, it is a substantial kayak that they will find to be heavy to move and maneuver. They will not experience the performance or responsiveness of this kayak purely because it will be too big for them. For fishing, children are better suited to the Tarka Angler kayaks.
The Kasai’s large rear Tankwell is perfect for your dog – if you have not filled the tankwell with fishing gear. If you do take your dog out, line the tankwell with a foam mat to prevent their paws sliding so that they can sit upright to enjoy the scenery.
The Kasai Angler is a dream on flatwater. Its four-meter length gives it superb speed.
The Kasai Angler is a great kayak for touring with decent speed, and lots of stability, comfort, and storage space for multi-day trips.
Solid and stable, and with plenty of space, Kasai Angler is a great fishing kayak. Kasai Angler comes with two flush-mounted Rod Holders, Deck Rails (to customize the deck by attaching gear and accessories) and an Anchor Trolley.
On the ocean, the Kasai Angler performs superbly. Thigh Straps attached to the Clip Rings will keep you on the deck should a wave catch you by surprise and they allow for greater control. Use the Tankwell, 8″ Screw Hatches and 8″ Day Hatch to securely stow gear. From one-day to multi-day trips, the Kasai Angler is an excellent seaworthy kayak.
The Kasai Angler enjoys surfing smaller waves, but for real wave surfing, get our Dumbi kayak instead.
While river tripping is a pleasure on the Kasai Angler, keep to sections of the river with smaller rapids. Use Thigh Straps attached to the Clip Rings for better control.
We don’t recommend paddling the Kasai Angler from a standing position but we do recommend standing up on the Stand-Up Platform to stretch your legs while you’re out on the water.
