Default Fishing Kayak

Fishing kayaks are my favorite kind of boats. I have Viking Espri Angler. I have never tried it on fresh water - only in the ocean. About the sea I can say that it is very, very, very stable and the waves are not a hindrance to it (of course within reasonable limits). And I’d like to debunk the most popular instability myth of kayaks.
The myth of the instability of kayaks, most likely, came from the suspicion of people that modern kayaks are somewhat similar to racing kayaks, and some people know how difficult it is to keep balance in a sports kayak. But unlike sports kayaks, the best fishing kayak has a radically different hull shape. It is almost 2 times wider than its sports counterpart and has a flat bottom, which allows even to fish while you are standing up. For the past decade, all the efforts of manufacturers from all over the world and all research in this industry have been aimed at increasing the stability of a kayak on the water and making it safer and more accessible to a simple man in the street, who is very far from sports. To turn the modern fishing kayak upside down, you have to make a lot of effort. With such an attempt, you would rather fall out overboard than turn the kayak upside down.
