In this section of the site I’m going to be looking at some of the electronics you are likely to bolt onto your kayak, or even carry with you in your PFD.

It’s our attitude to toys that marks kayak anglers apart from sea kayakers, for whom less is more, for kayak anglers, more is well, more. 

The two main items you are likely to be taking to see with you are a fish finder, perhaps including a GPS chart plotter, and a VHF radio. On the right you'll find links to a section on each, the radio one will tell you how to get licenced and has a couple of reviews of radios I've had a play with, while the fish finder section tells you how to fit one and links through to various boats I've fitted out, with step by step instructions of how to do it. If you've fitted out a boat and want it featured on the site, please drop me an email, I'd be really interested to hear from people who've fitted out different boats from the ones featured here, or who have done things differently
