Hobie Drift Chute / Drogue


The Hobie Drift Chute / Drogue is a useful item that will slow your drift in windy condition. Once deployed, ideally through an anchor trolley off the bow of the kayak, the drift chute will open up and act as an anchor in midwater. When used with an anchor trolley you can fine tune the angle at which you drift.


The drift chute has a weighted bottom section and floating top section so that it sits with the mouth of the chute wide open in the tide, usually sitting just beneath the surface. The chute acts as a brake and will slow the kayak down. The chute will then drift the kayak at the same speed as the tide, which is usally much less than the wind speed. This allows you to prolong your fishing time and reduce your paddling time! It also allows for baits to be presented much better whilst drift fishing. It can also be used if you get caught out in a squall, slowing you down and reducing the distance you travel with the unfavourable wind conditions.




  • Made from robust material
  • Weighted bottom section of the chute mouth
  • Floating top section of the chute mouth
  • Colour: Black


We offer a delivery service for the Hobie Drift Chute / Drogue throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.


Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.


Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales
