Ride 135 Angler Advanced Kayak Review

If you’re new to the sport of kayak fishing there’s no doubt you’re going to love this sport!!! Although I love fishing in waders there’s nothing like getting off the shoreline and experiencing the fishing adventure a kayak can provide.

This is a review of the Ride 135 Angler Advance kayak but first a word of advice.

If you’re buying your first fishing kayak it’s a great to make sure a kayak has all the options you want but its also a very good idea to familiarize with the company that manufactures the kayak to make sure this is a reputable company which makes high quality kayaks. Many of the reviews found on this site will also mention a few words about the company.

You don’t want to make the mistake of spending $400, $500 or over $1000 on a piece of junk.
