Two New Kayak Fishing Guides From Heliconia


- Advertisment -

After seeing his whitewater kayaking instructional DVDs we’ve come to expect videos directed by Ken Whiting to be of the highest quality, and Kayak Fishing doesn’t disappoint. Featured in this video are expert kayak fishermen Captain Scott Null and Joel McBride, the authors of the book on which the video is based, who guide viewers through a wealth of tips and tricks to excel in the sport. Owing in large part to the filmmaking experience of Chris Emerick and Lisa Utronki, Kayak Fishing is rife with voice-over instruction complete with multiple camera angles and slow-motion clips of critical skills

It is important to note that Kayak Fishing assumes of its viewers at least a beginner’s level of fishing experience and devotes its focus to filling the knowledge gaps in an angler’s understanding of kayaking. During the 60-minute playtime everything is covered from the basics of boat selection and proper stroke technique to very specific skills involved in landing fish in a kayak, the use of anchors to aid in fighting fish and tips on navigating difficult water. Anglers of all experience levels will find it a useful tool in making the transition from powerboat and shore-based fishing to fishing from a kayak. Seasoned kayakers who have a basic understanding of fishing will also benefit greatly as many of the fishing techniques explained in the video is not intuitive and would take long periods of trial-and-error for even experienced boaters to realize on their own.

The valuable instructional content, seamless filming and editing and high-quality images of Kayak Fishing serve well to motivate viewers to join the ranks of America’s fastest growing sport. It is sure to help anyone gain skill quickly and enjoy all that kayak fishing has to offer.


Kayak Fishing – The Ultimate Guide by Captain Scott Null and Joel McBride contains all the information revealed in the DVD and is perfect for bringing with you to the put-in.

Everett Johnson, Editor and Publisher of Texas Saltwater Fishing Magazine says, “There is important knowledge [in Kayak Fishing – The Ultimate Guide] for paddlers and anglers of all skill levels. The advice [Scott and Joel] give for rigging and equipping a boat and selecting gear will be invaluable to beginners; and no matter how many times someone has done it on their own, ideas, observations and recommendations from true experts are always worth time and consideration.”

“The sport of kayak fishing has exploded in popularity in the past couple of years, but we’re really just seeing the tip of the iceberg.” says Ken Whiting, President of The Heliconia Press. “Despite all the recent growth, kayak fishing has yet to be discovered by the majority of anglers out there. We’re seeking to change that, and to communicate how kayak fishing is an accessible and advantageous alternative to power boats. If this trend continues, and extensive market research indicates it will, kayak fishing will witness unprecedented growth in the paddlesports industry.”

Following Heliconia’s hugely successful publishing formula of working with leading outdoor experts and world-class photographers in spectacular shooting locations, Kayak Fishing – The Ultimate Guide will be available in a large, full-color format and features the stunning photography of Jock Bradley from excursions on location in Florida, Texas and Canada.
