Conventional wisdom tells us that offshore fishing expeditions generally require a serious cash outlay. The Catch 420 fishing kayak offers a distinctly attractive alternative, being equipped with a host of practical and useful features to help you reel in your supper. Forward of the centre hatch (which houses a bait bucket) is an innovative wet storage area and a scupper hole designed to accommodate a fish finder and protect it from water and weather.
Recessed storage areas in the cockpit keep your gear at hand, and you also get a comfortable seat, dual paddle parks, two flush-mounted rod holders, two 25 cm hatches, two rod parks, four D-ring attachment points, deck lines, and front and rear bulkheads. And because it weighs only 28 kg, getting it from your car to the water and back is relatively painless. Price: about R9 000. Contact Paddlers Kayak Shop on 021-786 2626 or visit www.paddlers.co.za
