 The many advantages 

of SUP fishing

1. Accessibility

The paddle board provides access to fishing areas not accessible from shore or by boat. Inflatable SUPs can be easily carried in a backpack, making them practical for fishing adventures in remote locations.

2. Discretion

Since the SUP is silent and doesn't require a motor, it offers a discreet approach to fishing in areas where fish might be spooked by the noise of a motorboat.

3. Physical exercise

SUP fishing is also a great way to get some exercise. Paddling strengthens upper body muscles and helps improve balance and coordination.

4. Immersive experience

Standing on the water makes you feel more connected to your environment and the nature around you. It's an immersive experience that can add a new dimension to your fishing practice.

Paddle technique

Practice your paddling technique to get comfortable and stable on your SUP. You'll need to be able to paddle efficiently while keeping an eye on your fishing line.

Choosing fishing spots

Always remember to stay safe by wearing your wilderness vest and ankle safety strap in case of a fall into the water.
