One of the great things about kayak fishing is our ability to DIY our own gear. Face it, we all started out making our own gear, whether it be a paddle leash out of weed-whacker line or a milk crate adorned with cut PVC zip-tied to it for rod holders. The guys at Yangler decided to take it another step when they decided that they could make their own performance apparel and do it better. Local kayak anglers in the panhandle of Florida, they decided the kayak fishing community needed some performance gear made by kayak anglers for kayak anglers, thus Yangler was born. Webster defines “Yangler” as a person who fishing from a kayak with a rod and a line. I think we can all relate to that!
With a wide selection of Yangler and RedDrum performance apparel, you’re sure to find something that’s functional and comfortable. I met Jay & Doug at the latest Boondoggle in Pensacola, FL, and immediately fell in love with their RedDrum apparel line. Being something of a redfish aficionado, it was no surprise that I was quickly drawn to it. Available in both long sleeve and short sleeve and color choices of red, white, or black it’s a very sharp looking shirt to wear on the water. The shirt is lightweight which adds to its comfort ability and offers UPF protection for those bright and sunny days out on the yak. It also provides sweat protection and keeps you dry when out on the water. I chose the red color design as it truly pops when seen. I also chose their RedDrum Fitted FBC ball cap in the grey color. I’m a fan of fitted ball caps for out on the water or casually due to how comfortable they are. This ball cap fits like a glove and doesn’t aggravate or become a nuisance after wearing it on the water all day. The ball caps come in a variety of colors to fit your style including black, grey, red, and white. Check out the guys from Yangler and you’ll see why their gear is perfect for kayak anglers!
