Kayak Fishing Buoyancy Aids & PFDs

Wearing a buoyancy aid (sometimes called a personal floatation device) is always recommended when canoeing or kayaking, whatever the environment or weather. As well as helping to keep you afloat in case of submersion, they also provide additional warmth. Please note that lifejackets, which provide buoyancy for the head as well as torso, are not the same thing as buoyancy aids.

The Buoyancy Aids listed below are great for kayak fishing. Comfortable for long days on the water and loaded with pockets and gear attachment points that are perfect for storing tackle, tools and small safety items.
