BENDING BRANCHES ANGLER CLASSIC

  • $ 14995


The Angler Classic gives you all the bells and whistles that our high-end fishing paddles do, at a price any kayak fisherman can afford. The rugged nylon-reinforced fiberglass blades are propelled by a durable fiberglass shaft, giving you the push you need without worrying about durability.

Check the length of your catch with the dual tape measure on the shaft (in both inches and centimeters), and get those pesky hooks free again with the hook retrieval system built right into the blade.

To customize your angling experience, the Bending Branches Angler Classic is available in both orange and green.

The Angler Classic comes with either a snug-fitting 3 hole snap-button ferrule (adjustable for feathering angles 0° and 60°, L or R).

The Angler Classic with a snap-button ferrule comes in sizes ranging from 220cm to 260cm, in 10cm increments.

When determining paddle length, the kayak width is the limiting factor for recreational kayaking. The sizing chart below should ensure you aren't hitting your knuckles on the hull as you paddle. For sleeker touring/sea kayaks ones paddling style and physical size plays more heavily.

Kayak Width Under 23" 24" to 28" 29"-33" 34"+
Paddler Height Recommended Paddle Length
Under 5'5" 210 cm 220 cm 230 cm 240 cm
5'5" - 5'11" 220 cm 230 cm 240 cm 250 cm
6'+ 220 cm 230 cm 250 cm 260 cm

 

An easy way to measure in the field is to hold a paddle horizontally in your hands with your elbows slightly inside a 90 degree angle (most paddles are ovalized in the area they should be gripped). Your hands should be about two-thirds of the way between the center of the shaft and the shoulder of the blade. Again, always take stroke angle and boat width into consideration, and demo the paddle whenever possible.

When looking to choose a paddle for kayak fishing, your boat's width will be the most important factor. Kayak fishing boats are often wider than typical kayaks and require a longer paddle. After measuring the width of your kayak, follow the chart above for a suggested paddle length.
