North Wales Kayak Fishing

this is my review of the Shakespeare Angler 120
The build quality of the kayak is superb with clean lines and nicely moulded features
As well as well thought-out features the most striking being a clever removable console pod.
The Shakespeare Angler 120 is 12ft 5inches long and comes ready fitted with 3 rod holders 2 flush mounts and a Scotty on the console

A sleek kayak with some really clever innovative ideas note the rear bungee eyes they are on the inside of the rear tank well this is to prevent damage when transporting

Paddle keepers are fitted as standard and anchor points for the seat

The front and rear handles are fitted through an extra strong area of plastic and the rear has the drain plug

The centre console id very clever its made from the same plastic as the kayak and its hollow blow moulded so if you were to modify this console by putting a 4 inch screw top hatch in the side then you could fit your fish finder and battery to the console then when not in use or during transport remove the hole console together with fitted fish finder

The kayak comes with a dry box for your car keys /mobile phone ect

Once the console is removed you have a very usable centre console with moulded in drinks holder and small bits tray this really gives you a very roomy cockpit to work from

The front hatch is secured with bungee securing underneath the hard hatch lid is a neoprene hatch cover so its all very watertight  

I think the the Shakespeare Angler 120 is a very good kayak with lots of clever innovative features that will serve an angler very well the recommended retail of the Shakespeare Angler 120 is £699 white water consultancy are the uk distributors for the shakespeare range of kayaks.
