Yak Fisher




YAK31 detail

Issue #31 Sep Oct Nov 2015 -This issue covers lots of Spring options and season starters. One of the most popular places is the annual salmon migration along the Western Australian coast is a major event for many anglers and occurs each year around early autumn. The heavy reduction in commercial salmon netting has fuelled this increase in numbers and as a result has been given the thumbs up from recreational fishermen. Damian Bowman recounts a day to remember and details the methods required to experience similar salmon madness.  It’s easy to take certain lure designs for granted, particularly when the base shape hasn’t changed for a number of decades. Robbie Waller catches up with Paul Carter to discuss the evolution of squid jigs and what to look out for the next time you’re faced with a wall of options at your local tackle store. Kayak fishing expeditions can be a lot of fun, provided the correct planning and preparation takes place beforehand. Josh Holmes provides a detailed explanation of all the things you need to consider before organising your trip of a lifetime. For many kayakers, the idea of targeting sharks doesn’t come across as all that appealing; however Shane Esmore embraces the challenge and suggests more yakkers do the same.  If you aren’t from Tasmania, there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of Ansons Bay, but as Gard Saxon explains, it’s well worth a look. The species are numerous, the waters are safe for kayakers and there are plenty of places to camp… it doesn’t get much better than that.

Kayak fishing is one of the fastest growing areas within the recreational fishing scene. Our initial efforts to include kayak fishing articles within Sport Fishing Australia magazine were met with such favour, that we decided to dedicate a whole new magazine to the pursuit. Yak Fisher magazine was born and combined with Sport Fishing Australia magazine to give anglers exceptional value in that they now receive two great magazines for the price of one. Yak Fisher was launched in autumn 2008. Its first issue was “feeling its way” with 12 pages of articles and reviews. Over the four years since, Yak Fisher has evolved and grown at an extraordinary rate and has established its own identity. In autumn 2011 Yak Fisher went to a flip cover, an exciting time and a result of its continuing growth and popularity. The latest issue, contains over 40 pages of technical fishing articles, product and kayak reviews, hints and tips as well as our instructional kayak DIY articles. Yak Fisher articles cover subjects of interest to readers with all levels of yak fishing expertise, from the beginner to the expert.

Yak Fisher is a technical magazine that kayak fishing enthusiasts have well and truly grasped as their own.

As with all our magazines, we spend time securing the best journalists to provide hard earned information for you. We actively listen to requests you provide on the information you most want to get your hands on. Each magazine is strategically developed to give you the best balance of information you require to continue to enjoy your chosen pursuits in the best way possible.
