TARKA “Angler” Single Fishing Kayak
Available mid-January 2019
We’ve added angling-specific features to the versatile Tarka so that you can enjoy speed and manoeuvrability in a customizable fishing kayak.
Deck Rails allow you to personalize the deck by attaching items like a fish finder, GPS, camera, selfie stick or additional rod holders on either side of the Sculpted Seat. Fixed to the rails, you don’t need to worry about these valuable items being washed overboard.
Two flush-mounted Rod Holders are located behind the seat, on either side of the 8″ Screw Hatch. These rod holders free up your hands when you need to paddle, de-hook a fish or take a time-out from fishing to have a drink or to eat. Each rod holder has a Multifit positioned close by for securing your rods while paddling.
By attaching your anchor to the Anchor Trolley, you can spend all day in that prime fishing stop without drifting away on the current. Slide the anchor forward or backwards to get the boat at the perfect angle as determined by the sun, wind, and currents.
Like the Tarka, this Tarka Angler has adjustable Footrests, a Paddle Rest, Bungee Cord straps to secure gear to the bow and a sizeable Tankwell with Crate-Holding Indents.
The Tarka Angler’s speed and weight carrying capacity makes it very suitable for paddling anglers who want to cover some distance, do some trawling and catch fish without loading a ton of stuff on the boat. It is also great for teenagers and smaller adults who don’t want to deal with a larger boat.
|Ideal paddler weight||50-90 kg|
|Max. carrying capacity||110 kg|
Getting in and out of your Tarka kayak
While smaller children will find this kayak large to paddle and manoeuvre, it is perfect for older children and teens. Tiny tots will enjoy sitting in the spacious tankwell.
The Tankwell is a great spot for your dog – unless you’re using it for your fishing tackle.
On flat water, the Tarka Angler is fast and agile. It offers both speed and comfort for a full day out on the water.
The Tarka Angler comes with two Rod Holders, which are positioned on either side of the rear 8″ Screw Hatch. These free up your hands to paddle, handle fish or to eat lunch. Deck Rails to the front and sides of the Sculpted Seat. Use these to customize your deck by attaching additional rod holders and gadgets like a fish finder, GPS device, and camera. Crate-Holding Indents in the tankwell hug a crate or cooler box to prevent it shifting. Use tie-downs, straps or bungee cord around the Multifits to secure your gear. Stay in position by attaching your anchor to the Anchor Trolley.
The Tarka Angler performs on the sea in both speed, stability and manoeuvrability. Its broad hull offers superb stability on rough water.
Although the Tarka Angler will get you out through the breakers and back in to shore in style, it wasn’t designed to cutback or ride tubes.
Enjoy kayak fishing on rivers with small rapids and scenic flatwater sections. This kayak is not optimal for big water and large rapids. Use the 8″ Screw Hatches and Tankwell to secure gear for overnight trips.
Our Stand-up Platform is a winner. It makes it easier for you to get in and out of this kayak, but also so that you can stand, stretch your legs and enjoy a height-above-water view to check out your surroundings, while you’re out on the water. We wouldn’t recommend paddling your Tarka Angler from a standing position.
