About Kayak Angler Magazine

Established way back in 2007, Kayak Angler is the first and only North America-wide kayak fishing magazine. Kayak Angler is about catching more big fish in small boats. Each issue is full of great saltwater and freshwater kayak fishing hotspots, the latest rigging techniques and pro fishing tips for every species, plus industry news and fishing reports on what's biting near you.

About Rapid Media

What began in the summer of '98 as scribbles on a bar napkin is now the world's best paddlesports media company. Rapid Media has four paddling magazines, produces an international paddling film festival, had the very first paddling and fishing magazines in iTunes, and is the official partner of both the American Canoe Association and Paddle Canada. We're proud of all this, but the real reason we're the best is because we paddle and we care.
