Pelican's 2012 line of entry level fishing kayaks makes it easy for first-timers to get on the water.

LAVAL, QUEBEC, July 9, 2012 – The popularity of Kayak fishing has exploded in recent years, as more and more people discover its unmistakable advantages. Kayak fishing offers a more peaceful and intimate paddling experience, is environmentally friendly and affordable, and allows anglers to access bountiful fishing spots that are too narrow or shallow for larger watercraft, not to mention that it allows them to quietly approach fish without scaring them off, as they would in a motorized boat.

Always at the forefront of kayak design and innovation and consistent in its mission to make paddling sports accessible to all, Pelican International offers a full range of entry level fishing kayaks that make it easy for first-timers to get on the water.
